Magician Kamal Kumar has a different way of defining magic. Here is an excerpt of his talk with The Ketaketi Online.

Kamalji, you have recently come to light as a magician. How did you enter this queer field?

I found magic when I was searching for God. As a young boy, I thought that magicians are people empowered by God to do miracles. I wanted to be the same. When I was sixteen, I went to Mumbai and learnt magic. Back home, I performed them at different places like Bhairahawa, Biratnagar, Butwal, Kathmandu and Hetauda. I have also performed in some Embassies and almost all the big hotels in Kathmandu. People watch my performance with awe.
