Why Magic?

As a child, everyone aspires to make themselves great with professionals and careers focused on our heads. Pilot, engineering, banking, and now maybe the ever-growing media field, but for Suhani Shah, there has never been an option. To which a question might pop your head as to why would one choose a strange, unique, and perhaps financially underpowered occupation. 

“I must have been 4 or 5 years old when I saw a magic show and I was amazed, I didn’t want to see another show, but I wanted to act it,” she narrates this in an interview. Suhani Shah also, recounted how she repeatedly poked her parents for letting her perform art and learn magic. The young stepped onto her theatre of dreams when she was just 7. 

“In those years, you had no fear of the stage, or of any preconceived ideas about anything. Suhani went, I performed, and that was it, ”

On Being The Only Female Magician Of The Country

‘This has never bothered me at all’, Suhani Shah only realized that maybe she is the only female doing this gig. However more than that she aims to fight the notion that people have created magicians.  

 There was a magical era in India – shiny hats, gold-plated headdresses, and other funny choruses followed by a rabbit pulled out of a hat – the K Lal era.  Suhani, as a child, did the same.

But she changed her performance after that, and so did some deceptive young people. The problem is that people still have the same image in mind, and it has been a challenge for Suhani Shah and other magicians to change that.  Magic still needs to work its way into people’s minds.

Suhani Shah ended the interview with a few lines “Everyone in this country, especially girls, should be allowed to make their own choices. A certain level of elementary education is required, but I do not think everyone must study the Pythagorean Theorem to improve his life. However, I would love to use it if I could do magic based on math, ”she smiled while narrating her thoughts to the interviewer.
