As a person who adores magic, my attention was on how magic could help these innocent children.

Former President of India
Gopinath Muthukad has found a very unique medium of magic shows to spread the thoughts and ideas of Mahatma Gandhi to our people in rural areas. Many of the Mahatma’s principles can be propogated to motivate the people to inspire for a better life. I am especially happy that the messages of literacy among rural women and abstinence from tobacco, alcohol and narcotics is being disseminated through such a captivating format.
Dr. Manmohan Singh
Former Prime Minister of India
The efforts of Gopinath Muthukad to disseminate the ideas of Mahatma through ‘Gandhi Mantra’ campaign are laudable. I am glad to know that his campaign is beginning its final journey from Wardha to Kanyakumari on October 2. It is important to recall Mahatma Gandhi’s ideas and thoughts to protect our ethos and culture from such a crisis.
Dr. Mohammad Hamid Ansari
Former Vice-President of India
I congratulate Gopinath Muthukad and his team of exploring the hidden talents of these differently abled children. The use of magic to bring out the inherent talents of these disabled children was a creative way of telling the world that they are not differently able or disabled but specially abled and they could achieve wonders.

The government has brought laws that are remarkable, but these are not enough. We must create a culture of respect, dignity, values, and inclusion. All praises for the great work accomplished by all the team members at DAC. The children deserve special praise and so as the tutors. My respect goes to Gopinath Muthukad for making all of these happen.
