Thiruvananthapuram: Magic show, pure and powerful, generates the same soothing effect like a lovely poem, says poet and patron of Magic Academy, O.N.V. Kurup. He said this while addressing 150 magicians gathered to commemorate the 25th death anniversary of Vazhakunnam Neelakantan Namboodiri, the magic guru of Keralites.
Magic to be pure, the magician should not claim that the wonders were products of any supernatural ability. It impures the art of magic. Magic Academy, through its variegated projects has been re-establishing the huge power of magic as a medium for communicating virtuous messages in the society, he said.
