An Indian Civilizational Perspective

The Indian Magic Mango Trick

This is a very interesting picture set from “The Secret Museum of Mankind“. I am not sure of the year of this picture – but it seems really old! The Asia section also has some interesting pictures from Andaman etc.

Published in 1935, the Secret Museum is a mystery book. It has no author or credits, no copyright, no date, no page numbers, no index. Published by “Manhattan House” and sold by “Metro Publications”, both of New York, its “Five Volumes in One” was pure hype: it had never been released in any other form.

Advertised as “World’s Greatest Collection of Strange & Secret Photographs” and marketed mainly to overheated adolescents (see the 1942 Keen ad), it consists of nothing but photos and captions with no further exposition.
