On a mission to wipe out drug abuse in city
November, 24th 2011

Two pieces of paper - 'alcohol' and 'drugs' written in each - were deposited in a crystal bowl by excise minister K Babu. Soon, they transformed into a skull, followed by an announcement that this would be the result of drug addiction. The onlookers were awestruck, as the magic show led by magician Gopinath Muthukad went on.

The occasion was the beginning of anti-addiction campaign 'Magic with a Mission' aimed at creating awareness among the public about drug abuse. Minister K Babu inaugurated the initiative at Ernakulam Town Hall on Wednesday.

Magician Muthukad, who has been using his talent to make the public aware of various social issues, is confident that his mission would be a success. "Magic is a good tool to communicate as there is no language barrier. Anyone can understand the message conveyed without any difficulty," he said.

"Alcohol and other drugs are the major reasons behind 90 per cent of domestic violence and suicides in our society. Many, especially youngsters, are least bothered about the ill-effects of substance abuse. The aim of this mission is to make those people aware of the hazards," Muthukad told TOI.

This anti-addiction campaign is jointly organized by Muthukad's magic academy, Kerala State Youth Welfare Board, excise department, Kochi corporation and the district administration. During the five-day campaign, that will conclude on Sunday, magic shows conveying messages on harmful effects of addiction will be showcased at Ernakulam Town Hall.

Apart from the magic shows, there will be training sessions for 1,500 students from various schools in the city on a daily basis. "After the training sessions, these students will take part in anti-addiction campaigns conducted in various parts of the district," Muthukad said. The magic academy also intends to run the campaign in all the districts.
