How Did Kuda Bux See While Blindfolded?

Such a man was Kuda Bux. Bux was a Pakistani who made his living
displaying his amazing talent to paying viewers.

Doctors all over the world examined and tested him, and none could ever call his remarkable ability a trick. Through the heaviest bandages, he could read books and newspapers.

The bandages were often applied by doctors and police. His eyes were even pasted shut with flour and water and then bandaged with a heavy blindfold. He could still read.

Completely blindfolded, he rode a bicycle through New York and London in the heaviest traffic. When asked about his strange ability, Kuda Bux said he saw with his “mind’s eyes.”

He said that when he was a small boy, he practiced picturing things with his eyes closed and tried to read books the same way.
