7th World Circus Day


Held on the third Saturday each April, World Circus Day is a special day to celebrate Circus Arts and Culture. The Seventh World Circus Day’s theme is "Collaboration & Cooperation for the Future of Circus."

And I think, it is the perfect theme especially for the circuses in India because Indian Circus Industry is struggling to survive and still the circus owners are not coming together and making strong association for the development of Circus in India.

It is sad that only one Circus is participating in this amazing celebration. Rambo Circus has taken part in it since the first WCD celebration in 2010. I hope, Indian Circuses get united and co-operate one another in this hard time.

Happy 
World Circus Day 
to Everyone!

Honour to Kelleri Kunhikannan

(Taken with a lot of Thanks from: Global Circus Facebook Page.)
Hello Reader,
Keeleri Kunhikannan - The Father of Indian Circus, under whose guidance innumerable circus artists & owners emerged, has been honoured on his 160th Birthday. The K.T.P. Mukku Road at Chirakkara has been renamed as Keeleri Kunhikannan Road. 

It's a great news for a Circus Fan that the Father of Indian Circus has been given such a respect. Indian Circus Industry has been neglected by the Government. They are always eager to impose various bans every now and then but no compensation or help is given. During this time of "Entertainment on SCREEN", people are going away from the reality. Circus is the form of such LIVE & Real entertainment which gives entertainment to each and every person. 

In this troublesome time, such news are welcome sign for the circus industry. However, so many other legendary people of this industry like Vishnupant Chatre - The Initiator of Indian Circus Industry, Damoo Dhotre - The Wild Animal Man of India and so many more are yet to be given the honour which they truly deserve.

Great Golden Circus is Back!


Hello Reader,

Finally Great Golden Circus is now running at Vadodara. And I am really eager to visit the circus. Recently, it appeared in a famous TV show called "India's Got Talent" - Season 5 and got a lot of appreciation by its celebrity-judges Malaika Arora Khan, Kirron Kher and Karan Johar. Following is the Link of this TV Show in which the circus appeared:

I grabbed the opportunity and visited the Great Golden Circus which always brings wonderful circus experience. Artists from foreign countries like Russia, Africa, Nepal, etc. and also various parts of India like Manipur perform wonderful circus acts.

The tent and the equipment and even the artist dresses all are shiny and new! The sound-system and the lighting effects are also impressive. 

Visit the circus and enjoy..!!
