I know Gary has been working on the project for quite awhile and when this does get released it will be something that all C&B workers should have regardless of if you ever do the Indian Cups and Balls or not.

I quite agree, and so to should the Indian Cups and Balls book by Pete Biro be on every book shelf.

Jonathan was right Gary - and it is saying a lot when you can be compared (and rightfully so) to Shankar Jr.!

Yes Jon. It is Thanksgiving or something and we are all going to eat out of a cornucopia.

The only real Indian जादूगर I've seen used chrome plated Bosco cup, which he constantly juggled between passes, while chanting Gilli Gilli Gilli.

Just because a person is from India and he performs the cups and balls does not make him an "Indian cups and balls performer." The chrome-plated Bosco cup pretty much eliminates that possibility.

It's like what Billy Sunday said: "If going to church on Sunday makes you a Christian, the walking into a barn would make you a cow."

I have seen Indian performers who tried to do something that resembled Cheppum Panthum, but it wasn't the real thing.

Gary has done it.

I can usually spot the work. This one went by me completely.

Great job, Gary!

I second that. I also could not see most of the work in the video from Gary and I have been doing Cheppum Panthum for a long time myself.

Thank you Pete and Dr J Ayala,
That is an old video.
I was breaking in at the time.
I have progressed since then.
I will put up a professionally made video.

Getting back to Gary's work - congrats on crossing a cultural chasm to get a ritual/routine from another culture working.

You've completed the journey that Columbus was attempting and brought back some magic.

Kudos!

Here is the magic I brought back (in a limited amount.)

These cups are designed functionally to help enable you to execute many different types of moves efficiently.
The balls are very special.

Brilliant stuff Gary. Loved it!

Are you selling some of the Indian cups you brought back?

I have the smaller Morrisey, but am looking for something larger.

I am selling the cups and wands only at the moment.
I will be selling everything you will need to learn and perform Cheppum Panthum if there is a demand. If there is a demand I will also offer a book or two covering everything from theory,all the moves, making your own balls and routines.
PM me if you are interested.

This is incredible! I should hope there would be a demand! There is so little now...and this material is PRICELESS! Gary's performance is perfect! The timing, the relaxed attitude. No hype. Notice the lady's reaction. That is the kind of reaction I like!

Yes, I'm in. How long do I have to save for these? I don't imagine they're cheap! Smile

I am overwhelmed by the responses I received from everyone.
I am starting a list for magicians who are interested in owning this effect.
I am wrapping up 3 books on Cheppum Panthum.
There will be a small book that will teach you how to make the best balls you ever owned.
The other 2 books will have all you need to know about the tools of the trade and all the moves.
I will also include routines.
My email is info@jadoosmagic.com
Let me know if you are interested.

Me, too.

BTW, regarding Eddie Joseph, according to friends of mine who knew him well, he was better at writing up cups and balls moves than he was at doing any of the routines.

Has Shankar Jr.'s patter ever been translated to English?
I am curious to hear how it sounds.
