Hello,

I will be travelling in India in October/November (mainly in South East India, but with opportunities to travel to some cities in other parts of the country).
As a cups and balls addict, I am curious whether anyone in this forum could point me to places where I could see, talk to, and possibly exchange knowledge with Indian performers of the 'Hindu' version of the cups and balls. Or, if possible, even to specific performers and their contact details...

With thanks in advance, Tilman

PS: I am aware of the clip that has been posted here of a street performer in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu, which is conveniently located near the place where I will be staying most of the time...

Do a google search for "Shankar" or "Shankar Junior" -- he speaks English and is a top cups and balls worker (I learned from him on his visits here in the USA).

Also, there are some IBM rings in India, as well as some local magic clubs. India is a big place, though, so make sure you contact people in the are where you are going.

Thanks to everybody for their answers.

Bill, I may let the areas I am going depend (partly) on the contacts I can make there.
Pete, thanks a lot for the link indeed.

Best regards, Tilman

There is a strong IBM presence in India. There are six IBM Rings listed, but they only really have information on two of them, one in Calicut and the other in Kolkata. Here's a list of IBM contacts:

Solyl Kundu is a very active member, both locally and online. I'd try him first. he may not be in the area you're going, but maybe he can provide you with some information on who to talk to.
