Magic is no longer only rabbits in a hat and different coloured flowers popping out from a vase.

Magic as an art and form of entertainment has undergone a make-over with stylish, young magicians dressed in designer wear taking the centre stage to caste spell on the audience.

Ugesh Sarcar and Shankar Junior are two second generation magicians taking forward the legacy their fathers had set-up but with a difference.

"For me magic is an art and much more than cutting people into halves or floating them in air. In short defining logic is magic," says Ugesh. Shankar Junior opines, "Magic is an artistic presentation of science with a little glamour added to it."

The magical art they both feel has undergone tremendous change, "Our all new look is a credit to the change and itself speaks volume", says Shankar Junior. "The gaudy dresses and loud make-up of yesteryears appeals no more to people", he adds.

"You find new looks on TV every nover and be as jazzy as the GenNxt today," says Shankar

It's not only the looks, "The art has also changed. Before there were very low sources of entertainment so people easily believed what you did. But now my audience is very intelligent. You cannot easily pass the test," Ugesh says
