PC Sorcar recites 'Aabol Tabol'
Kolkata, Mar 20 : Sukumar Ray, renowned author and father of legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray, was recently remembered through his master creation 'Aabol Tabol' which was recited by eminent magician P.C Sorcar (Junior) at an event arranged by the Eden City Group at Eden City Maheshtala, here.
P.C Sorcar (Junior) was seen reciting three popular poems of Sukumar Ray - 'Baburam Sapurey', 'Sat Patra' and 'Bhoy Peona' - to children present there.
Eden City organized a children carnival - Children's Day Out, where many children from different age groups of 5-8 years, 8-12 years, and 12-16 years, participated in a sit-and-draw competition.
Sorcar told IBNS, "I have never tried anything other than my magic tricks to enthrall children. I can vanish train, people, or anyone with the help of disillusionment."
"But vanishing the everyday frustration of life like this and delivering slice of enjoyment to these innocent faces is really a big opportunity that has been given to me by Eden City Group," he said.
While commenting on the future of magic in India, Sorkar said, "At Agartala in Tripura I have my own magic school, where people come to learn magic from various age groups and in the near future I have a plan to open a magic school in Kolkata as well."
"My daughter Maneka is shining in my profession and she will be taking magic as a profession to the peak of success. So, in one word the future of magic in India is very good."
'A Joyful Place Called Home' was the theme of the sit-and-draw competition, where little ones expressed their thoughts with hues and brushes.
Twelve drawings by them would be compiled and a 3-in 1 table top calendar comprising of Bengali, English and Hindi dates for the April 2013- March 2014 as a remembrance of their creativity.
Eden City Vice President Biswadeep Gupta said, "To spend out a day with these little ones was just marvelous and above all, among this contemporary culture we are losing our roots; so without remembering Sukumar Ray the day could not be completed."
