The Man with the Magic Spectaclesby: Manohar Bhatia
I was at the library one day, browsing through some pictorial journals, when my eye caught sight of a copy of National Geographic, It contained some very exciting photographs of wild life, the planets in the solar system, and beautiful exotic plants. I wanted to have a copy of these pictures, but there was no way I could. I had a camera with me, but taking photographs was prohibited in the library. To add to my woes, the photocopy machine was out of order. I was wearing my glasses and it was then that an idea struck me. What if my reading glasses could copy these photos? Would it be possible? What if by reading the whole text of any publication – a book, magazine or even a film – it could be recorded just like a voice on tape? It would be a truly thrilling experience!
However, such recording glasses would have to be specially manufactured. These thoughts led me to writing “The Man with The Magic Spectacles.” I thought of a plot, story line, location and characters, and quickly fitted all of these together. My co- writer, Martha Jette has helped me by adding chapters, developing characters and editing the entire manuscript.
