And his efforts paid off in the year 1978 at Hollywood, where he bettered the best of the World’s best magicians and was awarded The Gold Medal. Again, in the year 1980 at Brussels, he repeated the feat and was titled “The Grand Prix”. And he stamped over all the stiffest competition from the best magicians of 150 countries globally, at Montreal in the year 1982 to be awarded “Magi of the East”. At the age of 19, he broke the World Record for UNDERWATER ESCAPE when he escaped from a box in which he was sealed and thrown in the river Narmada at Jabalpur. At the age of 22, he rode a 250cc motorcycle BLINDFOLDED, from Indore to Bhopal, a distance of 200 kilometers in just under 180 minutes, creating another World Record in the process. A master of Telepathy, he is known far and wide to send mental messages hundreds of kilometers away to his medium.
Anand’s talents and achievements were duly recognized in all the advanced countries of the world. He has performed more than 27000 shows in more than 36 countries of the Americans, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa which itself is a World Record for maximum number of shows performed by any magician ever. Currently the National President of All India Magic Federation, Anand is seen by the fraternity as the last hope for the dying art of magic. He dreams of building a Magic Academy of global standards in the capital of every province of our country, India. It pains him that the government has largely ignored magic as an art. He appeals for more support at least in form of some Tax waivers for this art. None of his achievements or fame has touched Anand. He remains a down-to-earth person who never forgot his roots. He is hard-working and god fearing. He worships India and its diversities and is just another Proud Indian when not on stage.
