Magic School 

Pradip Chandra Sorcar, the Indian magician who famously performed a trick which made the Taj Mahal disappear from view, plans to open a school of magic. Based on 2,000 years of knowledge, the school is to be based in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal.

Ten years ago, Sorcar received the Merlin Award for his contributions to the art of magic from the International Magicians Society in New York.

Fillet of a fenny snake
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blindworm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble,
A handful of chillies and a scoop of curry,
An Indian spell to cause Hogwarts worry.

With apologies to William Shakespeare's witches spell in Macbeth.
