I went to see the GREAT OLYMPIC circus along with my wife & daughter on Saturday. I was not atall interested ,but for my little daughter I changed my mind. To my surprise the show was packed as it was a weekend & summer vacation has already started. The show began with march past& continued with all regular features like gymnastics,cycling ,animal shows etc.my daughteralong with hundreds of other kids really enjoyed all the tricks. Jokers were at their best.
Before going to the circus I was little doubtful regarding the quality & veriety of the tricks they will be showing ..as now days we are watching so many fine performances & videos on tv & cinema .But to my dismay it was really wonderful. The circus might have loose some of their early charm but nodoubt they have still all the perfect ingredients to hold their main viewers.. THE KIDS.. even the adults.
We did not know how the two hours passed.. I was remembering my childhood days while watching the circus; I asked my daughter , "Which one trick you liked the most" ?
She replied 'I liked all specially JOKERS'. My wife also was very happy after watching circus after a long time.While munching popcorns my daughter asked 'Daddy,why there was no tiger & lions show ?
My wife said 'The circus people are afraid of Menaka Gandhi & it is also illegal & dangerous to keep wild animals in cage & to make them perform infront of public'.
Suddenly I jokingly remarked" where is Menaka Gandhi ?Can't she visualize the pathetic conditions of all caged wild HUSBANDS at home & why she is not taking actions against the RING MASTERS . 'THE WIVES' ?
My daughter was surprised to hear this.' Mama is this true' ?is papa a caged lion & you are a ring master ?
Giving a sharp glance at me she told"You know , before our marrige your father had maintained his house like a CIRCUS'. She was looking at me for my response.
"Correct dear,and after our marriage your mother has become the OWNER OF THE CIRCUS & YOUR PAPA HAS BECOME A JOKER".
We all three were laughing.
