Google Performance

In the last 6-7 years that i have done magic, i have received hundreds of compliments and appreciations from people who i have performed for. Everywhere I go, i love hearing people talk about my "special" abilities. But by far the best appreciations I've ever got were from Google, and I thought it would be nice to share what Google said about me as my second post...
Gurgaon had quite an unusal close to last week.It was captivating as well as scary. 45 min seemed too short for us. We all wanted more and more.
We played host to Karan Singh , a magician par excellence during TGIF last week. He showed us card magic; from separating all the Aces in a deck without looking at them to guessing which number we were thinking about - he transported us to another world and told us why he wouldn't be allowed in casinos after this :)
He started at the age of 5 and has only been getting better and better untill now. He started by asking someone from the audience to choose a card , show it to everyone and mix it back in the deck. After which he asked someone else in the audience to call out a random number between 1 and 52 ( someone has 25) and he counts 24 cards in the deck and lo and behold! the 25th card turns out to be the chosen card!! This was only the beginning of more such magic. He then involved a group of people to pick cards and hold it between their hands and without touching them got their cards on to his palm. After the initial thoughts of trying to figure out how he did what he did , we all gave up and got immersed ourselves in some reallyyy good card guessing games. He stunned all of us by telling us which card we thought of without even using the deck. All around words like " , amazinggg , brilliant" could be heard.

Some called him a mind reader , some a magician. In the end , he was the perfect entertainer and we couldn't have ended the week on a more magical note!
