It is a pleasure to be recognised and praised. We get applause from people from all walks of life. We are mentioning some of the testimonials given by well known personalities. At the Different Art Centre, we want to be a delight in everyone's heart.

I congratulate Gopinath Muthukad and his team for 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.

I congratulate the people behind The Different Art Centre. The journey was unbelievable. They show us the beauty of child creativity through magic and other art forms. I offer all my support for the team of Different Art Centre. The centre after months of its operation has resulted in improvements in the IQ levels of these children which is really adorable.

We can imagine how much benefit these children get from Different Art Centre offering a stage for a variety of art forms. This is a unique example of how an art centre can make this much changes in the life of differently abled children. May the light of hope spread to many more.

Sri. Pinarayi Vijayan Chief Minister of Kerala

It will be the first ever initiative in the world that stands only for differently abled children. It helps them to sharpen their skills enjoying their favourite art and in addition it also helps them to support their families. I wish every success to Gopinath Muthukad and his team of special children.
