Three talks by Charles Cape
As the son of a missionary, Charles Cape spent his childhood near Benares, the sacred city of the Hindus, making much the same kind of friends as Kipling's Kim. In this talk he describes how he persuaded an old sorcerer from the outcast tribe of the Doms to disclose some of the secrets of his technique.
