I have been asked that question by so many people over the years — friends, relatives, class-mates, co-travellers, friends-of-parents, barbers etc etc etc.

Even though there is just one thing that I do … my answer to that question depends on many factors like, who is asking that question and my mood!

Well, I have a suggestion. That’s why I am writing in ain’t I? 🙂

The next time somebody asks you the billion-people question, tell them you are a MAGICIAN.

Then hear them say: “Oh! Wow! That’s too cool. First time I am meeting one like this… You know!”

Give it two minutes. That’s the time they will be silent… And then be prepared with the answer when they turn around and ask:

So which instrument do you play?

Take it on from there as you would!

Note: The above is based on numerous real life incidents that the author has had to go through… In trains, buses, restaurants, roads, et al. In fact, everywhere except after a magic show. Quite understandably.

  1. The next time somebody asks you the billion-people question, tell them you are a MAGICIAN.

    The next thing people will ask is to, perform a magic trick! What do we do then? 🙂

    1. Naaa… The question will be “So which instrument do you play?”

      So just be ready to play some musical instrument… 🙂

      Alternatively you can pull out a piano from your sleeve, and show magic! 😉
