Muthukad’s magic brings jubilation for jubilees

Magical commemoration
‘Sepoy Rebellion’, the first war of Indian independence began in the month of January 1857 and progressed through the month of May. It took 90 years more for the great Mahatama Gandhi’s peaceful and nonviolent philosophy to earn the ultimate Indian freedom on 15th August 1947.
What is the connection between this lore of the past and magic of the present? There is. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the country’s first freedom struggle, Kollam branch of the Nehru Yuva Kendra organised Illusion India, the latest version of stage magical extravaganza by magician Gopinath Muthukad. The 120-minute illusion show held on 25th Jan., was incredibly amazing and inspiringly patriotic. Thousands of people thronged on the open grounds to witness the homegrown Houdini’s show. Eventually, with his graceful talent, Mr. Muthukad carried the entire audience to a dream world of mirth, myth and mystery. It took several seconds for many of them to return to the reality, even as the curtain was closed for the show.

Employing magic
Kerala Public Service Commission (PSC) is a constitutional body in charge of recruiting candidates on the basis of merit for filling job vacancies in various government departments. On going golden jubilee celebration of the PSC earned a magical halo owing to Mr. Muthukad’s Illusion India being fixed for the valedictory on 27th Jan. 07 at its central office in Thiruvananthapuram.

I was very impressed as well. I included as story about the show and Mr. Muthukad's work on Quinlan's Inside Magic. It is currently on the front page and the permanent link is here.

Our readers enjoy following Mr. Muthukad's many efforts to continue the tradition of peace and further the aims of magic.

Congratulations, Mr. Muthukad.
