Thiruvananthapuram: Summer magic training at the Magic Academy began with all fun and frolic. Gopinath Muthukad was the teacher for the first day. For the first class, he taught the children a trick wherein a coin vanishes into thin air on rubbing over one’s body. Children liked the trick very much. Even though their first attempt to do the trick at their own failed, glitches vanished during their consecutive trials. “Magic is like this. Practice, practice and practice only make a magician perfect”, the magic teacher said to the enthusiastic disciples. The first class also gave them the key principles of misdirection, essential for keeping things from the attention of the audience.
