A Mentalist in Grey – Lior Suchard

August 27, 2013

Wearing a slate grey double breasted suit, uncombed hair (quirky gentleman), a silver steel wrist watch and a superman ring (he is no less than a superman himself), Lior Suchard is the person of anticipation. Calling himself a ‘Mentalist’, this man foretell the future, read your mind, influence your mind and even decode your most guarded secrets of all.

Kingdom of Dreams gave us, the Indians, an opportunity of a lifetime. Lior, who has been showcasing more than 200 shows every year around the globe, was here last week, in Delhi to take workshops and deliver entertainment shows.

The fun part is, none of his shows had the similar pattern of commencement. During a personal tete-e-tete with him, he mentioned a very amusing story, which proved his mind-blowing mental capabilities and how positively he took the life around him.

Recalling the time when he met his wife for the first time, he said “When I was 16 years old, I saw my wife sitting in front of me for the first time. Usually boys my age tried the cheesiest pickup lines to ask a girl out, but I on the other hand had a very simple question to ask. I asked, if I can guess your number, can I call you?” (Yes, he was able to guess his wife’s number!)

Lior has performed in front of Hollywood celebrities, like Leonardo DiCaprio and has been on Jay Leno’s show too.

My experience, being a part of his show, was simply mesmerizing. The positivity that he gave away, the assurance that everything is possible, and that perfect smile simply made my evening. I ended up receiving his latest book, including excerpts from his life experiences, and a lesson to stay positive and stay focused!

I was also introduced further to the world of Kingdom of Dreams. The tour very well described, why it is called a kingdom of dreams. Everything seems so colorful and enthralling.

My personal favorite has to be the Cultural Gully, which is like a Mini India in itself. The decor is marvelous, the staff very humble and the experience… out of this world.

The architecture has every essence of a state, from offering a wide range of cuisines from different regions of India, the decor of each restaurant shouts out the culture loud. For eg. a Punjabi restaurant had earthy pots installed as wall decor, the sitting furniture comprised of wooden chairs/beds-used-as-tables (khatiya) and Punjabi music playing in the background. This was the perfect depiction of how a Punjabi Dhaba (roadside restaurant) is suppose to be.

I was seated in a Goan restaurant, which had the Goan folk music being played in the background, a mini church, some amazing fresco work on the ceiling, Portuguese sitting furniture, wall paintings and of course, the alcohol bottles.

If Lior Suchard is the magnificent entertainer, then Kingdom of Dreams surely is a magnificent entertainment hub!
