VIJAYAWADA: Vice-Chancellor of Krishna University M.K. Durga Prasad on Sunday said entertaining art forms like magic must be extended patronage. Addressing a meeting organised in connection with the valedictory of Jadugar Anand's magic show at Thummalapalli Kalakshetram, Mr. Durga Prasad pointed out that renowned magicians like P.C. Sarkar and Jadugar Anand had given a new meaning to the art of ‘magic' in the country. The Government must recognise their immense talent and come forward to support them in all ways possible on the lines of nations like China and Russia where artistes of magic and circus were given subsidies and other benefits in Government-sponsored programmes.
Management consultant and personality development trainer M.C. Das said magic must be included in the curriculum of universities to keep the art alive. Students should be taught the art of magic that can be educating and enriching, he said. Jadugar Anand's magic show that commenced in the city on August 13, concluded on Sunday.
