I'm from India. We don't have many magic shops and libraries with magic books where I live.
My 1st experience with doing magic happened when I was a kid and a local magic shop setup a kiosk showing their products in an exhibition, we bought a box containing around 100 magic tricks, out of these I only remember few, a trick card which could make it appear that it could levitate a match stick, cutting a rope and attaching it and cups and balls.
I don't have any props right now, not even regular playing cards. But I find it entertaining to see magic tricks on TV and Internet. Sometimes I become curious to know how something like that could be done, and I search for explanations on the Internet.
Luckily I found this forum. I'm interested in learning magic which can be done with regular everyday objects.
