The spectators clapped to appreciate the performance. The feats on the swings, hanging high in the air, were really exciting. People applauded loudly whenever a breath-taking feat was performed then horse riders who performed many enjoyable and thrilling tricks and feats on the fast running-horses.
It was great fun to see a monkey firing a gun and cycling in the. Ring. Next, a group of little elephants delighted us with their tricks and feats. The feats done by a young motorcycle-rider in a well-like cage of iron bars really made me breathless for a moment.
There were many more shows, equally enjoyable and exciting. But the show with a lion and five tigers excited me the most. I can never forget this show. A ring-master with a long whip entered a huge cage followed by these ferocious animals. They growled, pawed the air and roared dangerously. But the ring-master made them perform many hair-raising feats. Whenever any of these royal beasts dared to disobey him, he cracked his whip. And the beast then followed his instructions like a tame cat.
We returned home late at night and immediately went to bed. It was a wonderful and memorable experience for me. I enjoyed and admired the show, and showed my appreciation by clapping my hands in between the performance. During the lion-show at one stage, I was full of fears as to the safety of the ring-master and us. But soon these fears proved childish, giving place to much joy and entertainment.
