The famous great Bombay circus has been running its show in our city for the last two months. It has been attracting very large crowds. People who had seen its show were full of immense praise for the daring physical feats of men and women and the feats of the tamed animals. The lions, the elephants and the hippopotamus were the talk of the town. People were much impressed by the items of the circus displayed before them.
On a Sunday we made a program to visit the circus. The show began at 6.00 p.m. We reached the circus, purchased our tickets and were in our seats by 5.45p.m. The show began at six. First of all some young gymnasts, both boys an girl, showed their physical feats. They twisted their bodies in many ways. One wondered whether their bodies were made of flesh or rubber. The physical movements of their bodies were greatly applauded by all. Intermittent fests by the jokes made the spectators burst in to laughter. They seemed to be quite an expert in the entire serious feats but they performed them in a funny way just to amuse the people.
Physical feats lasted for about an hour. Then came the cyclists. They presented good fests on wheels. Their valiant and dangerous feats then followed. The motor cyclists ran their motor cycles simultaneously in a deep well. They called it the “well of death" and it WAs really so. There were many other such daring and dangerous feats which keep the spectators spellbound.
Last of all were displayed the feats of animals. The monkeys rode unicycles. A bear drove a motor cycle. Then came the turn of the elephants their leader saluted the spectators and played football. The show of the lions was marvelous. It really proved man’s supremacy over the animals. The lion and the goat stood side by side. What an achievement man has made! The show ended at 9.00p.m. We came out of circus full of praise for it.
