sword-swallowing Trick in Calcuta (Kolkata) - April 27 1970

A member of Calcutta's street people, those so poor that they have no choice but to eat, sleep, bathe, shop and even entertain outdoors, provides some sword-swallowing entertainment for the crowds who gather each Sunday in a Calcutta park. This park, the Calcutta maidan, is a vast, open area known as the "lings of the city" because it is believed to contain the cleanest air in the Indian city's polluted downtown district. - April 27 1970
