At The Delhi Comic Con

So I went to the Delhi comic con practically on impulse, made my brother tag along, actually he's become too lazy to go to anywhere especially in this chilly winter season.

But he did finally give in to my repeated persuasions and also because Karan Singh Magic was gonna perform (since he's a fan). Hence, we made it to our best weekend of the year!

The convention has been held in Delhi since 2011 which is why I wanted to experience the whole thing at least for once in my life.

While there were more Marvel or DC exhibits on one hand, there also were far more anime cosplayers on the other; yay! In fact, wherever we looked there was someone dressed up as a character from Naruto, Bleach or Dragon Ball.

Needless to say, I have always been an anime fan, even from the time when I did not even know what it was; my brother is crazy about them too!

We started by watching Pokemon and Beyblade; journeyed towards Shin chan and Doraemon. At this point, when we just had begun our teenage years, we weren't aware that these cartoons were actually Japanese exports.

Then came Animax into our lives and things changed quite rapidly. The first anime which we both finished watching together was Toward The Terra (a hidden gem in the ocean) and then on to the best of all: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Since then we have never looked back; so at this comic con we were expecting to see many other anime lovers from Delhi and Delhiites lived up to our expectations, thankfully!

Apart from the expected nerd-mania, there also was a special stage performance by the famous Indian mentalist Karan Singh Magic who is infamous for his password reveal acts. You may have seen him in his viral YouTube videos with Virat Kohli or Hrithik Roshan.

To be honest, I was a little skeptical whether he'd be able to pull off a trick on stage, but he did so exceedingly well! His trickery wowed the spectators yet again...only this time though, it was us who unlocked his phone or so we were made to believe.

Then, he made some random person from the audience come up on stage and flip through a thick textbook. Another someone in the audience was called for to shout "stop" and so the flipping stopped.

There it remained at page number 197 and the person holding the book was made to choose any common noun from the page. After some inquiry, and tricks, Karan guessed it and wrote the very word on the white board, much to the surprise of every individual on or off the stage.

And shortly after this mind-blowing presentation, "the Rahul Dua" of Comicstaan fame brought us to tears with his ever so funny stand-up comedy which included the perfect blend of observations, anecdotes and improvisations.

Best weekend of the year? Yes, most certainly! Will I go again? Surely! Next time, probably dress up as a character, maybe?
