At other times he is like any other 8-year-old, but on stage he assumes the role of magician with finesse. Bhagyanath, a 3rd standard student of St.Santhal School, Kowdiar, Thiruvananthapuram, has captivated spectators with 500 stage shows already to his credit.

Son of magician Nath and Reji Nath, Bhagyanath is indeed a lucky star who has appeared on the magic scene.  The list of personalities boggled by his magic wand is very long.  The foremost one he fondly muses is the Maharaja of Travancore who was spellbound when the boy turned a plain blank paper into one that carried the royal emblem of a conch.  Then he remembers the then Chief Minister A.K.Antony who was amazed when his reflection in a mirror was frozen into a permanent image.  He had also performed in the last programme attended by former Lok Sabha Speaker, late T.M.C.Balayogi.

Bhagyanath had won the Rajiv Gandhi Bala Pratibha Puraskaram in 2001 and the Justice C.Chandrasekhara Menon Memorial Award recently.

He performs all items of magic usually shown by any other magician of our time. As for his favourites, he names open cutting, aerial suspension, changing humans into animals etc.

It isn’t in magic alone that he has made a mark.  He anchored a programme, ‘Telesallapam’, on the regional telecast of Doordarshan.  His acting talents will be tested in 2 forthcoming serials to be telecast shortly.  He is a good orator and the way he delivers each word is endearing.

Nath considers ‘Manaviyam’ programme held in August 2000 as a major break where Bhagyanath inaugurated the programme and went on to conduct more than 10 shows.  He has toured almost all the States for conducting shows and holds the credit for having the largest magic troupe in South India as a child magician.
