Performing for Google - An evening of wonders!

Last year, I performed for Google, Gurgaon. Not only are they the world's best place to work for, judging by the way they encouraged me and helped me perform better then I actually can, they even felt like the world's best place to perform for.
Doing a stage as well as a close up performance on their world famous "TGIF" treats. The performance wasn't as good as what followed it. Their appreciation mail which went out to Google India. And this is what it looked like:
"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 "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 11 and has only been getting better and better untill now. He started by asking someone from the audience to think of a card. After which he asked someone else in the audience to call out a random number between 1 and 52 ( someone said 25) and he counted 24 cards in the deck and lo and behold! the 25th card turns out to be the thought of card!! This was only the beginning of more such amazing feats. 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 mind reading effects. 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!"

Well Google, all I can say is that, this is till date the best review I've got for a performance and that I would love to perform again.
