Magic Classes to begin with Mathe-magic feat
Kochi: Summer Magic Camp for children jointly organised by the Ernakulam District Council for Child Welfare and the Magic Academy led by ace magician Gopinath Muthukad, will begin on 6th of April. At 10.30am on the day, Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer will inaugurate the Camp at function to be presided over by the District Collector, Dr. M. Beena. The Library Hall attached to the Priyadarshini Traffic Training Park will be the venue.
Following the function, Mr. Muthukad will stage his latest feat in magic incorporating children gathered there. Christened, ‘Maths, Mind and Magic’, it’s a presentation combining intriguing elements of mathematics and sleights of hand.
In an interesting turn of the show, a team of blindfolded children will be picking at random, tokens heaped in a shallow vessel. With these numbers, children work out some mathematical problems on two writing boards. Now the challenge before the magician would be to predict the final answer of the lengthy calculations. Adding suspense will be an envelop hanging over the audience carrying a prediction written by the magician.
Through this performance, handed down to the children will be scientific poise to identify the deceit behind predictions made by certain people who claim to have superhuman abilities.
