Thiruvananthapuram: Magic Academy Alumni Association, Thiruvananthapuram (MAAAT) has become operational. The organization was formally inaugurated by the Minister of Law, M. Vijayakumar on 10th of January. The inaugural function was held at the solemn ambiences of the Gandhi Park.
During his speech, the minister made several references to the visit he has made at the Academy ever since its inception in 1996. Mr. Vijayakumar was frank enough to express his ambition of learning magical art at the Academy.
“In fact I have been nurturing a huge passion for learning this amazing art from the Academy. But I suppress it since I am afraid if people would have a wrong notion that everything I do, even the development schemes, are magic”, the Minister said triggering laughter.
Erudite scholar, Dr. George Onakoor presided over the meeting. Mr. Muthukad’s words in felicitation of the event contained optimistic words that the newly formed MAAAT would stand at its own feet and do admirable service.
Secretary of the MAAAT, Chandrasenan Mithirmala welcomed the guests and its president, Somasekharan Nair tendered vote of thanks.
