Kindly check the below video clip at 0.25 speed or if possible slower.
from 4.42 - 4.46 his RIGHT HAND and his
movements before 4.42 (edit Ex Baba admin:
we could't find, but
Robert Priddy did, as he was pointed out to it by the writer of this
comment in the Ex Baba guestbook!)
from 8.48 - 8.53 his LEFT HAND and
movements (edit Ex Baba admin: from 6:48 - 6:54)
Harder evidence you cannot find.
If you check all the vihuti videos, you see
him holding piles of letters in order to hide materials or vibhuti. His
4+5th fingers are always bent, then if the materials are handed over to
devotees, he holds the letter with all five hands.
Even in the famous pot vibhuti show, once
he pulls down the pot which was held too high by the old man. (We still
cannot prove this one but in other clips, you see clearly him taken
objects in left hand over to the right hand)

Terrific ! Thanks !! Another new fraud
video from a visitor to our site ! We will make a posting out of it !
from Robert Priddy:
These are good
video quality and from a new angle. The short clip definitely seems
to show him putting (something) into his mouth … but the object if
any cannot be seen.
In fact, that would not be the full stage magic trick, because Houdini and
his many copyists actually swallowed the egg-shaped objects and then
regurgitated them. Houdini learnt his from some Japanese person…
started off swallowing a potato on a secure string and so learning
to bring it up without the string when confidence was established, I
am almost certain Baba did it that way in the earlier days.
I have written
The trick was used in stage magic
by Houdini: ”During my engagement in 1895
with Welsh Bros. Circus I became quite well acquainted with a [Japanese]
of the San Kitchy Akimoto troupe and from him I learned the method
of swallowing quite large objects and bringing them up at will. For
practice very small potatoes are used at first, to guard against
accident; and after one has mastered the art of bringing these up,
the size is increased gradually till objects as large as the throat
will receive can be swallowed and returned." (Houdini,
Miracle Mongers and their Methods, Coles 1980, (reprint), pp.
What you are doing is commendable. Fraud central trust here.
