Toshiba told his son not to pronounce a certain word because it brings bad luck.

Tonight there was a great show at the large open air esplanade of the hotel. An ancient Japanese Magician would present a singular spectacle. I am a journalist and read a lot about Toshiba the magnificent magician. He was told that he possessed a strong concentration and a super magnetism. He had inherited this from the great master of Zen Akio who was his grandfather too. Unbelievable but true he could move Lorries just with a great concentration.

In the coulisse of the esplanade I wanted to do a prompt interview with such magician. But I heard something by accident. Toshiba was talking to his son and follower Akira. "Akira you should never pronounce the word: Daisuke when you are doing a spectacle; it brings you bad luck".

I undertook an interview later with Toshiba the magician. He was a very polite man and revealed me few about his secrets. He caught my intention when he told me that he was not a superstitious man. A thing which went against what I had just heard.

At nine PM the spectacle started.The first spectacle was about entering a car that someone of the spectators chose. It was really amazing when the car entered the scene smoothly as if someone drove it. The second was about releasing a great fire from a waterfall that set within the hotel esplanade. Unbelievable how can fire be released from water?

The last spectacle was about entering one elephant in the gigantic esplanade of the hotel. But Toshiba accidentally pronounced the word Daisuke. A huge amount of elephants entered the immense esplanade and attacked him. He was rescued and led to the hospital. But he was seriously injured. It was both tragic and ironic. Indeed this was the magic which returned against the magician.
