"Chanda" was the stage name of an American nightclub magician and mentalist performing in clubs along the East Coast in the 1940's. He was billed as "Chanda", "Dr. Chanda", "Chanda the Great" and "Chanda the Magician".

His partner in the act was "Zeella", a female magician who did the mentalism act.

Here are some of the clips about Chanda and Zeella from the Bob Sachs "Magic" column in Billboard:

(10-11-47): "Chanda the Magician and Princess Zeella have launched their new season in Pennsylvania, from whence they will soon head southward."

(3-12-49): "Chanda the Great and Princess Zeella, televisionologist, are still touring Florida, playing theaters. They expect to wind up the current jaunt in April when they will return north for their summer season."

(6-4-49): "Princess Zeella and Dr. Chanda, mental-magic turn, after winding up Florida theater dates, are working theaters, clubs and parks in Pennsylvania, with similar dates in Maryland, New Jersey and New York."
