Kuda Bux

    • Kuda Bux was famous for his Xray eyes and fire walking.
    • He was born at Kashmir on 15th October, 1905. He moved to London in 1935.
    • During 1935 Kuda Bux cooperated with psychical researcher Harry Price in two fire walk tests under control conditions, on September 9 and September 17. Scientific observers carefully monitored all aspects of the fire walk. Kuda Bux’s feet were examined, and no chemical or other preparation was discovered. The temperature of his feet was taken before and after the walk and was found to be slightly lower after it. His feet were not blistered or injured in any way. The skin was soft and not calloused; moreover the feet were washed and dried before the walk. The surface temperature of the fire trench on the second day was 430°C. The trench was 25 feet long by 6 feet wide and 9 inches deep. Kuda Bux walked the trench deliberately and steadily in 4.5 seconds; the estimated time of contact of each foot with the burning embers was half a second. The tests were photographed and a cinematographic record taken. A volunteer European, Digby Moynagh, attempted the walk on both days but suffered some blistering of the feet. A full report of the tests appeared in Bulletin II of the University of London Council for Psychical Investigation in 1936. These tests made Kuda Bux well known, and he performed in British variety theaters with his impressive act of “eyeless sight.” (Fire departments would not permit fire trenches to be built on stage for demonstrations of fire walking.)
    • In 1938 Kuda Bux traveled to the United States to demonstrate his fire walk for a Robert Ripley “Believe It or Not” radio program and later became a member of the Society of American Magicians. He demonstrated his eyeless vision act widely and in 1945 rode a bicycle through the heavy traffic of Times Square in New York while blindfolded.

Magicians claim that such performances are tricks, in spite of the performer’s being heavily blindfolded, with balls of dough placed over the eyes and secured with yards of bandages. The skeptical view is that the dough and bandages are shifted sufficiently by the performer to enable him to squint underneath them. However, Kuda Bux claimed that his performance consisted of feats of mental concentration, establishing a link between his mind and outside objects, although he admitted to practicing conjuring tricks in his acts.





Kuda Bux (1906 - February 5, 1981) was an Indian mystic and magician. One of his most famous tricks was one in which he would cover his eyes with soft dough balls, blindfold himself, swath his entire head in strips of cloth, and yet still be able to see. He was also a fire walker. In his later life, he lost his eyesight to glaucoma.
Kuda Bux was the subject of a 1950 film titled Kuda Bux, Hindu Mystic, and his apparent ability to see while blindfolded with dough balls strongly influenced British author Roald Dahl in the short story of Henry Sugar, who was taught to develop the same powers.
Most astoundingly, observers noted that the unblindfolded Bux required reading glasses to read fine print. Whilst blindfolded Kuda Bux would read the dates on coins which are held on a spectator's hand, read the fine print of a magazine, thread a needle, duplicate words he had never seen written, shoot a bullseye with a pellet gun, and many other mysteries.
According to Robert Ripley, Kuda Bux performed an astonishing feat in Radio City, Manhattan, on August 2, 1938. According to this account, a hole 3 feet deep was dug in the Radio City parking lot and logs and bags of charcoal were set on fire in it. Kuda Bux, so the story goes, walked back and forth through the pit—twice. Ripley said, "Kuda Bux's feet were not even warm." There is newsreel footage of this event in the TV biography (distributed on VHS) Robert Ripley: Believe It or Not (TBS 1993).
