Mr. Gopinath Muthukad has had the good fortune to meet and work in close association with several people renowned for their contribution in their area of work. Here is what some of them have to say about him.
Late A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
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 differntly 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.

Magic is not about tricks; it is about entertaining; creating a special experience and connecting with the audience. Gopinath Muthukad may be a magician, an illusionist or an escapologist, but to me, he is a great entertainer, with a mission. Muthukad is a good friend and this friendship and love will continue forever.
