Agartala: The foundation stone of a day boarding school being established by magician P C Sorcar (Jr) near here, where students will also be taught the tricks of magic, was laid on Tuesday.

Affiliated to the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) board, the `P C Sorcar Foundation for Total Education` will come up at 10 acres of land at Khayerpur, about 20 km from here, by 2012.

"I want to establish a school which would impart education on different subjects like drama, magic, performing arts, besides conventional education," Sorcar, who has earned
many international awards for magic, said.

It will be a unique and exemplary institution in the country, he added.

Known as the `merchant of vanish`, the world-famous
magician had once made Agra`s Taj Mahal, Kolkata`s `Victoria
Memorial Hall` and a locomotive train with passengers in broad
day light "vanish".
