Fire Eater Stunt 

Subba Rao 

Fire eating is an art that started in ancient India. Hindu 

Sandhus and Fakirs perform extraordinary feats like eating fire to show 

their mental and physical endurance. Now a days, trained people perform 

fire eating in circus and fairs as an entertainment. It is amazing to 

see large ball of fire coming out a mouth particularly in the

field,” replied Naidu pointing a large yellow building on the other 

side of the vacant land. 

“How long you have been living there?”
