What a great event! I performed on a stage inside a very large gym with the city mayor and other politicians present. I did some basic stuff with bearing, then some freestyle, then called a girl and a boy on stage for a couple of tricks plus a long wire walker and finished with Figaro. Dropped a little more than I wished but people must have liked it becausethey took hundreds of selfies with me!  ;D I felt like a Hollywood celebrity! Every kid wanted me to spine the top on their hand or head (popular with boys only) and also wanted me to sign a little paper or the palm of their hands. It was  crazy!

This is all in slow motion, so you may want to watch it at 2X:

Nice video - Thank’s for sharing. You should make a tip for one of your Roto tops with a 1/2 inch neck - and go for the 150 foot wire walker. The top is big and light - it should be perfect. Or maybe apply some JB weld to the neck and file it down?

I made it to the front page of the Satara newspaper (together with the failed landing on the moon of the Indian craft)




 
Figaro appeared in at least 5 TV stations, including regional ones. I'm now in a large city 2 hours away (Pune) and somebody told me that he saw me on TV!
All the credit really goes to Sandeep who has lots of credibility with the media after founding the Satara half-marathon, which is now the 8th largest in the world (8,000 runners).

Before my show there was a young troupe that did fakir acts. It didn't look very good for the health!  ::)

In this state, Maharashtra, that includes Mumbai, they speak Marathi. But it uses the same script (Devanagari) that Hindi and many other laguages of India (including Sanskrit). But in a few hours I'm flying to Bangalore (Bengaluru) where the official language, Kannada, uses a different (but related) script. The number of different cultures that coexist in this county is overwhelming.
