"CIRCUS - The traditional heritage of India is loosing its sheen...???
A study conducted to promote Indian Circus
Please support and share your ideas and suggestions with us....
By
Marshal.C.Radhakrishnan, Adv. C.N. Radhakrishnan,Dr.T.S.Rajeev & Vishnu Venugopal

The 130-year-old Indian circus industry, once the favourite form of entertainment with family and friends, is struggling to survive. This study aims to reveal the current trend and constrains faced by the Indian circus industry and its owners, artists, labourers and their families. Also tries to lighten the attitude of the public towards this great art.Circus is a different art which needs both physical strength and mind to hard work. The Indian circus today is struggling to remain afloat amidst the many challenges like scarcity of funds, fading public interest, performance license requirements, a decline in the quality of artists, ban on animals and stricter animal Regulations.

We are just trying to perpetuate and promote Indian Circus Art. We carried out study with the cooperation and support of Leading Circus Companies of India. Also carried our public surveys to know about the recent trends and attitude of the public towards this Great Art.Now we are doing public awareness /campaigns for the promotion of Circus.
The ultimate aims of this study is to perpetuate and promote Indian Circus Art, promote circus among the public and work for the welfare of circus companies, artists, employees, animals etc.

Please send your suggestions and feed back to : marshal_cr@yahoo.co.in

Ye Duniya Hi Ek Circus Hai Kayoki Peda Hone Se Lekar Marne Tak Insaan Kitne Tarah Ke Kartab Karta Hai Kabhi Hasne Ka Kabhi Rone Ka Kabhi Jhuth Bolne Ka Aur Kabhi Kisi Ko Dhoka Dene Ka To Ye Sab Kaya Hai Circus Hi To Hai I Think Hum Sab Joker Hai Agar Haste Hai To Koi Dusra Dekh Kar Bhi Hasta Hai Aur Agar Rote Hai To Dusra Dekh Kar Udas To Ho Hi Jaata Hai Soo Ye Thi Mere Dil Ki Kuch Baaten

In 1969 - 70, in my teen years, I was the music director for the New Grand Circus. I joined them in Ooty, and re-organized the band of 4 musicians (2 trumpets, saxophone and drums). When I found them, they simply stopped playing after an act. I taught them to play "TA-DAAA" at the finishes, and introduced new songs for the acts. Bhim Bahadur was the ringmaster. Other acts were a young acrobat named Kumari Amini, and a motorcycle stuntman who rode around inside a metal globe named Moinuddin (his most famous stunt was the "Leap for Life").

We played for a private royal audience at the (first) marriage festivities of the son of the Maharaja of Mysore. The palace was completely lit at night, and there was a great procession with many elephants, etc.

Do you have any info on the history of my dear old circus, both before and after 1969? Btw, I am an American. James

James said...

By the way, Bhim Bahadur was also the wild animal (lions and tigers) trainer for the New Grand Circus. He was a real master!

Fan of Circus said...

Hi James,

Fan of Circus said...

Hi Shantanu,
Thanks again for visiting the blog. May I know why you are asking for whereabouts of different circuses?

shantanu said...

asking just for personal interest

ujjwal said...

some circuses not showing your list, i.e olympic circus, famous circus, natraj circus, jamuna circus, rayman circus, grand circus.rhino circus, empire circus.

Fan of Circus said...

HI Ujjwal,
Thanks for your information. I know this list is incomplete but with the help of Circus Fans, I will surely complete it. So please tell me if there are other circuses missing in this list.

Fan of Circus said...

Hello Shantanu,

I tried hard but I am unable to find about the Circus you are asking about. And moreover, Circus people don't trust outsiders seeking information about them as there are many people and so called NGOs always ready to harm circus with their stupid allegations.

shantanu said...

rajmahal circus, metro circus, great indian circus.

Fan of Circus said...

HI Shantanu,
Thank you very much for sharing the names. I will add them. If you find any other names, please do share.

HAPPY WORLD CIRCUS DAY

Hey it would be very helpful if u can update the venues of the circus most of us don't have any connections to the circus and it's very hard to find a circus near you by the way been searching for circus for a long time your blog was very helpful

Anonymous said...

Do you know in which circus ringmaster Mr, a pavitran

Fan of Circus said...

Hello to both Anonymous above! Thanks for your visit to the blog. Now I am not that much attached to the circus. No circus informs me where they play so I can not update the information. And I don't know where Mr Pavitran works now but I may find and if I get info. I will surely tell you.

PLEASE WRITE YOUR NAMES at least so that I can inform you by name.

Zoe said...

Hi ! Does anybody know where I can provide the movie "Dekh Indian Circus" ? I'm from Switzerland and it's impossible to find it. I also wonder : are there some modern circus in India (I mean without animals) ?
Thank you for your help !

Zoe

Fan of Circus said...

Hello Zoe
Thanks for visiting the blog. I have tried hard but I even don't know when the movie released in theatres. Neither do I have any source where I can find the movie. So Hard Luck for that.

After the Govt. snatched away animals, Circuses hardly have more animals to show. But the Circus without animals do exist. It is the Great Oriental Circus. You may visit their website at :
