Exposing The “Miracle” Of Blindfolded Sight- The Story of Ranjana Agarwal

Written by June 23, 2010 4:30 am 201 comments

This is the story of a little girl of fourteen and the ambitions of her mother whom we met at the studios of Live India TV channel on the evening of 18th June. The story begins on this date, when I received a call from the channel asking if I could visit their studios if I was in Delhi. When the call arrived, Shubrum, Rakshi and I were on our way over to their house, after a very important and successful meeting with the present director of Vigyana Prasar Network, Dr.Anuj Sinha. Since Shubrum had a meeting, Rakshi and I decided to go for the live broadcast to investigate the case of this girl, Ranjana. It was the claim of her family and some others that she had the unique power to see blindfolded. Some of these folks also accompanied her to the studio. It was claimed that she had been given a certificate by the Ministry of Human Resource Development that she had the power of seeing with a cloth tied over her eyes! That was supposed to be in recognition of her ‘unique talents’. It was quite clear that this girl who was from a village near Varanasi wanted to go places!

On the panel which went on air at 9 pm there was an astrologer, an ophthalmologist, Rakshi and myself. The discussions started with the so called “unique talents” of this girl, with some prerecorded footage of her showing her so called remarkable talents! Then the whole drama started. The opinions of the panel were asked.The ophthalmologist said that the phenomenon needed testing. The astrologer, as to be expected, said that it was a case of supernatural powers. Rakshi said that there was nothing supernatural and I promised that by the end of the program I would prove that she had no supernatural powers.

The tests started with a blindfold being tied round the girl’s eyes and a newspaper shown to her. She brought it down at such a low angle that she could read it through the gap between the blindfold and her nose! When I said this was something that anyone could do, the blind fold was tied around my eyes and I was asked to read something held higher. Obviously I could not do that. That was said to be my defeat in round no.1! The discussions continued and when it was Rakshi’s turn she said it was to be seen as to how this girl was doing it. The anchor kept on harping about the unique talents of this girl and how these were recognised by the govt of India, throughout the program!

Then we took a break and there was an argument between the anchor and Rakshi! When the show was off the air, heated discussions were going on. Though I tended to agree with Rakshi, I am a veteran of many such shows and decided to hold my peace in the larger interests of the movement. This was followed by more heated arguments and Rakshi went off the air. But the panel continued without her and so did the nonsense!

Two pieces of cotton were kept on the girl’s eyes and the blindfold put back on. Again she managed to ‘see’ a paper held before her eyes, through the same gap. When I suggested that I would put the blindfold properly on her the anchor declined and said that I would get my chance later! That was never to come! In the meantime there were many other superfluous things going on, They were showing footage from Mahabharath, the part where Kunti put her unique powers into Duryodhan etc. The astrologer was harping on about the powers of Sanjay in the Mahabharath who could read written words from miles away! So, I pulled out a currency note from my pocket and challenged the girl to read its serial number from ten feet away. The astrologer backed out saying that the events he mentioned had happened in Threthayuga and it was Kaliyuga now!

indi-tv_pujariThen came the denouncement! The next chance to prove the so called miraculous powers of the girl was another test. She was to have dough applied to her eyes and be asked to read the words. I said that I wanted to participate in this and went near her with two pieces of sticking plaster in my hands. I had observed where the gaps were between the blindfold and her cheeks and wanted to apply the dough to that area. When the ophthalmologist got ready with the dough, the girl complained that her eyes were hurting and that she was having problems seeing! I had anticipated this, as I could see the girls mother signaling to her, apparently out of the sight of all the others, that she should say no! The very sympathetic anchor said that she was a small girl and hence should not be subjected to more trauma! He who was keen up to that stage saying that we would conduct more and more tests to demonstrate these unique powers of the child, suddenly turned very sympathetic when the going got really tough.

I had got ready with the plaster, but there was no question of applying it now as the girl was shedding copious quantities of tears. The whole drama had been planned and carried out in such a way that the girl would be let off when it came to the crunch. She was to be ready to cheat when the criteria were not rigorous, and when really tough tests were to be applied such a drama would be enacted to get her off the hook! But, I was not willing to be a party to this. I was very vehement that the whole thing was a drama and asked why the rigorous criteria of applying dough to her eyes was not done in the first trial. I also wanted to know why I was not allowed to access the girl the first time! There was no need to go on for an hour when the so called miraculous powers could have been exposed in a few minutes.

The whole thing is about TRPs. They wanted to sacrifice a child at the altar just to improve their viewership. It was obvious that the driving force behind the whole farce was her mother who wanted to bask in the glory of her daughter’s unique “talents”. The whole exercise was fueled by the ambitions of the TV channels to improve their ratings. In fact before it went on air I was requested to wait for some time before I expose this girl, as the whole show was to go on for an hour or so.

Those in on this plan wanted the so called special powers of this girl to be certified by us, which is why I had been invited. This invitation led to their exposure and downfall. In the process, the child was hurt and had to undergo humiliation in public. But the very relevant issue here is that the child was put up to this sort of exploitation. The anchor had been talking all that time about a ‘testimonial’ awarded by the Ministry of HRD, govt. of India. I was wondering, on what grounds did the government issue this “testimonial”? How could have this department verified that this girl had the ability to ‘see’ with her eyes blindfolded, before issuing the testimonial? The anchor was also bragging about the ‘certificates’ issued by some local govt. medical officers. Who had given them the authority to certify this so called miraculous power?

This certificate produced by the girl's mother appears to be a fake. No mention of Ranjana Agarwal can be found in her name. If this is a case of fraud, forgery charges must be brought against the mother.

Edit: On further checking this certification has been verified to be genuine. The target now includes the ministry of HRD, the government of India, which has so carelessly declared that this girl has the ability to see blindfolded.

While the child’s alleged miraculous powers were exposed on the show, what was the gullibility level of those who certified her? Did none of them have any sense as to see how she was reading blindfolded? My conclusion was that Rakshi had been right from the beginning. It was not about the exposure of so called ‘miraculous’ power, but about a greater exposure of how a publicity-hungry parent, TRP-crazy media and gullible public joined to make a celebrity out of an ordinary myopic girl who was peeking at things held under her nose through the gap between the blindfold and her cheeks. The case needs a more thorough investigation by some agency looking out for children’s welfare, because Ranjana Agarwal is only fourteen years old and legally still a child.

  • A later more detailed search revealed that this girl has been a recipient of the award mentioned above. So, now the question is that how the govt. of India certified this so called ability to see blind folded without proper verification.

    • How? They have one of the biggest populations on the planet, and thus have one of the worse qualities of education on this planet.

      They say bangalore is the next silicone valley, but…. United States is ranked 36th, while India is like 111 on educational ranking, at the same time, India has about twice the population.

      Short answer, they have shit education, thus “officials” who are dumb. Not all of them, just their fair share based on their lower quality education.

    • I know this is old post, but there is news circulating that nithyananda foundation claims that they can make children read blindfolded through third eye awakening, is there any chance for you guys to expose that? These people need to be addressed well.

      • We are addressing all of them through this recent statement:
        Since the Midbrain activation gang is making claims that they are very scientific and doing yeoman service to the society, I as an individual in my own humble way would like to make my small contribution to this noble cause in the form of a grant of rs.5 lakhs only.Here are the terms and conditions:
        I, Narendra Nayak aged 64 years s/o late R.C.Nayak, President Federation of Indian Rationalist Associations, resident of 101, Noel park, Microwave station road, Mangalore-575006 and have been investigating paranormal phenomena since past four decades have come across a recent fad going on in our country in the name of Midbrain activation being conducted by a number individuals and commercial undertakings. While most of the claims made are unverifiable and extremely subjective, one which is striking is that they can make subjects see through blind folds- to be specific that they can see without any light reflected from the object reaching the retina of the individual whose ‘midbrain’ has been activated. Since this claim is of earth shaking sequences and surely capable of earning a Nobel prize for the claimant and also to revolutionise a lot of things in the world, we would like to verify the same under tightly controlled conditions. I would also like to make a grant of Rs.500,000 to any one who can demonstrate the same under such conditions which have loosely specified as below. More specifics will be laid down if any one is agreeable to demonstrate their claims under these broad guidelines. We are not entering into any wager or betting but only making a small grant to further research and investigations into this matter to enable the applicant to rise to further heights in the field which promises to be a very promising one. However to prevent fortune hunters and such non serious contenders we have to also specify a security deposit of Rs.50,000 which shall be refunded along with the grant money of they succeed in demonstrating the desired objective under conditions specified by us.
        Terms and conditions for the grant of Rs.500,000 for carrying out further development in the field of seeing without any light inputs on the retina.
        1.Since the claim is that the subject will identify objects, read material without any visual stimulus from them we shall be taking measures to see that no such will reach the eyes of the subject to be examined.
        2. Blind fold shall mean any implement of any material used to block visual access to the object to be identified which may mean something fixed around the eyes or anywhere else between the eyes of the subject and the object. It may be one or more such.
        3. If colors, numbers of notes or any printed matter will be read it shall be done in an enclosed container into which the hands of the child shall be inserted in a fool proof manner. The object shall be put in a tube of opaque cloth with a double fastening. The access will be allowed only after loosening one, insertion of the arm to its maximum and then tightening the same after which the fastening around the object to be identified will be removed. The objects will be put into numbered such containers. Only after proper recording of the observations will the objects taken out.
        4. The answers are to be specific. In case of written material placed for identification the exact reproduction is needed. In case of a currency note the denomination, currency, serial numbers are to be given.
        5. The applicant shall be allowed to first demonstrate what the subject/s is/are capable of doing using their own props and blindfolds but that shall have no bearing whatsoever on the tests which we shall conduct using our own material and conditions which shall be put into further detail before the test is conducted by us.
        6. Once the subjects are going to be ready to be tested by us the applicant will have to desist from giving them any sort of communication. Any such attempts shall be deemed to be per se malpractice and the results shall be held to be invalid.
        7. I am placing the grant amount as rupees five lakhs only. The applicant will have to put in 10% of the same from his/her side as deposit which shall be forfeited if the subject fails to demonstrate the power. The grant shall be given to the applicant only if the subject under testing shall pass the tests with 90% results. The exact details shall be furnished before the start of the event.
        8. If the trial involves minor children the applicant for the grant should provide an undertaking that the consent of the parents has been obtained for the demonstration.
        9. In case of any legal dispute the jurisdiction shall lie in Mangalore.
        10. The trial shall be conducted at Mangalore at a venue and date suitable for both parties in the presence of media and members of the Dakshina Kannada rationalist Association and others who should inform before hand that they are going to be present. If the venue is to be shifted out of this place, it shall be at the discretion of the grantor to select of reject the venue.
        11. A more detailed agreement shall be drafted and signed before the beginning of the test.

  • The whole thing was a bloody joke!…..I was wondering where Rakhshi went during the show…lol…the anchor was such a tool..and the astrologer was pulling stuff out of no where…..all someone had to do was to tell her to read with her eyes closed…why the drama with the blindfold…

  • yogendra Kapoor

    it is true that Ranjana is not an ordinary girl as it is not possible for any ordinary man to read with eyes closed. saying that she was able to see through the gap below her eyes is nonsense.
    In all probabilities, as she says she is able to see, it is that she is seeing through her nostrils. The anatomy of her eyes and nose is such that she gets light through her nose and it is reflected on the retina and she is able to read. To check this you only need to cover her nostrils along with the eyes. you will definately get the reply. Still you must believe that she is extraordinary and nature has gifted her with this special ability

    • @ Yoigendra Kapoor-I dont know whether you have seen the footage of the drama. She was seeing through the gap between her the cheek and the blindfold by the way she was holding the matter to be read.Just plugging that gap would have exposed her. But, the whole thing was stage managed in such a way that we could never the chance to do that. Whenever I sent near her, the anchor would firmly keep me away saying that I would get a chance to test her later. When the chance came she started the drama of weeping and claiming that her eyes were paining.
      When the whole tamasha was going on her mother would come and whisper instructions into her ears when we were off the air. The whole trick would be exposed in 30 secs if we were to plug the gap between the blind fold and her cheek. You can also see that the girl is very thin with a large gap between her the bridge of her nose and the cheek. There is no chance of light through her nose falling on her retina as implied by you!
      I reiterate my challenge we will expose the so called miracle or the extraordinary ability in minutes if we are given a free hand.

  • yogendra kapoor

    i would like to say that i had seen the whole episode. May be she is able to see through the gap between the nose and the cheek. But before certifiying that she is cheating us, we should first look into all the angles and see how she is able to see. I again reiterate that it is quite possible that she is able to see as she may be getting light through her nostrils and then it is being reflected to her retina. It can be possible as she has about 50 per cent defect in normal viewing. Definitely we cannot experince the trauma she might be facing before the camera.

  • Dr.Sandeep Nayak S

    Pr. Nayak., This article is really schocking news for me. How can a mass media do this? Yeah. I watched the programme on TV. Programme was good. I cannot believe that Govt has given such certification!! Well done Pr.Nayak.

  • We can’t imagine the heights of stupidity that our Government accomplishes. From the date 14th November 2004 I presume this certificate was presented on Children’s Day. Their parents must have some clout. Smt Reva Nayyar, Secretary who signed this certificate should be asked the scientific method used to determine the supernatural powers of this girl.

  • i saw the pgm. the anchor never allowed Dr. nayak to tie the blindfold on the girl’s eyes. otherwise i’m sure the girl wud hav failed to read. dr. nayak is rt in his explaination.
    this is a quite old magic trick called Xray eyes.
    i can put coins on my eyes stuck by licoplast, then flour dough, cotton on top of that, then a metal sheet, then a black blindfold cloth to tie my eyes..if that is not enough, i’ll cover with a blindfold bag n stil can drive blind folded, solve differential calculus or solve rubick cube. it is nothing supernatural. just a magic trick.

  • they have repeated this programe again on today at 12 noon..nonsense..

    This girl totally fake…

    if she see through her eye,when closed,,,why she could not be able to see when it is hold at her eye level,,,,why..? Why she be only able to read when it is at the angle of the gap between eye and nose…….close that gap and she be not be able to see….guarentee…

    Furthermore,,,just told her to close her eyes without putting cloth,,,dough,,cotton,,,,simple close her and “zoom” the camera on her eye..and ask her to read..at any “angle”…..i am confident..she cannot read..without lifting her eyebrows..if she does so camera captures the movement of her eyes…by this…one can easily know what she is doing…
    .

  • I think the worst part was the use of “manviya bhawna” as a tool whenever Prof. Nayak approached her as if he would hurt her or something. That girl is 100% FAKE.I have my sympathies for her, as I know that she has lost her father and her family is living in poverty, but thats no excuse to fool people for publicity and money. Any mother doing this to her very own daughter lacks “Manaviya Bhawna”. She is extremely very well trained to cry when thing are not in her favour. the show was pathetic and disgusting and so was the anchor and the journalist who claimed to have investigated the whole matter.. LIVE INDIA TV plz spare us some “manviya bhawna” n stop such caricatures..

  • yogendra kapoor’s claim “seeing through the nostrils and light pasiing thro blah blah blah … ” is all non-sense. the nostrils as far as i know are connected to the throat and not to the eyes. Vision is such a complicated process – involving the retina rods and cones so on and so forth. another fact is that human beings do not have a layer called tapetum lucidum a layer that is seen behind the retina. this layer reflects visible light back through the retina, increasing the light available to the photoreceptors. This improves vision in low-light conditions. The tapetum lucidum contributes to the superior night vision of some animals. Many of these animals are nocturnal while others are deep sea animals. even these so called nocturnal animals will be blind-folded if there is absolutely no light (pitch darkness). so how can a human being, with no such layer and with her eyes closed , be able to see ???? and the government of india without even referring to scientific facts have blindly given a stupid certificate to the girl. its a big shame to even have announced such a tupid thing.

  • I am told that the same mother-daughter duo went for an audition for some TV show to demonstrate their extraordinary so called talent and were thrown out in 30 seconds flat!

  • I saw the show yesterday and I felt that if I have to rate the people who were acting stupid and were insensitive, then

    1. Mother of Ranjana
    2. TV Anchor
    3. Astrologer

    I cant imagine that her mother is trying people to believe that there is a supernatural power. There is NOT! They are lying. All she can do is.. she can manage to see or peep through even after the blindfold. Now we can call this a skill , but certainly not some super power. And I think the certificate is saying the same that she can see after blindfolded.. it no where says that she has super natural powers.

    So, I think the mother is trying to take this to one level above and trying to prove her as someone born with supernatural power.

    The TV anchor was trying to make sure the program runs for complete one hour so he kept talking of three step process… and finally did not do the third step… it was not bad till step2 and it became bade in step3 ? Why.. was is not agreed by all the participants at the start of the show ? He is a joker…

    The astrologer acted like how you would expect him to.. as if he was told that he has to support and he was paid to do that. He kept harping about Mahabharata incidences… and was telling she has got some “daivik shakti”. Come on…! He is the one who ashames India… when water of sea becomes sweet and then makes all devotees drink that water and again when Ganesha drinks Milk… has no willingness to understand the situation and simply relates everything with god and goddess.

    I appreciate the lady, psychologist who left, because we were humiliating a child who is 14 yr in front of the camera. If such a thing has to be proved, it can be very well proved in a scientific lab or at a doctors clinic. This does not have to be proved in front of the camera.

    To Ranjana.. “just claim what you do and you will still get lot of pat on back for that, you are able to see through the blindfold and see from the bottom of the blindfold”. There is no harm in claiming this… magicians claim only this.. they are no god, they say its a trick.

    I see there are reasons which supports this skill
    1. Her face structure… ie, the lift of the nose, the cheek bone etc.. is such that she finds space to see through a blindfold.
    2. She has ability to read at those angles which most of us dont try.
    3. For myopic people often seeing through some thin vent works similar to how I see through glass. I used to do this in childhood. My eye power being -4.5, I can not read or see things beyond say 1 meter.But if I created a pin hole then I could see the same very clearly… so I think this has to do with optics, light transmission etc. So this helps her see when the opening is as small as a pinhole.

  • Logically even if we believe in the girl’s ability to see the things after blindfold it can be explained through Science (still a hypothesis though). Consider how we see things, the light scatterred through the object reaches eyes and form image on retina.The retina have special cells to detect colours. Certain animals like bees can see the ultraviolet rays, so they have broader vision. When light strikes a object, three things happens:
    1) It may get absorbed.
    2) It may get reflected.
    3) It may get transmitted.
    In fact all three happens for various colours in varying proportions for any object. That’s why glass with smooth surface seems transparent as it has high transmission coefficient for visible spectrum of light.
    Now consider that certain materials (like blindfold used) have high transmission coefficient for some specific electromagnetic radiation (not in the visible range of spectrum), then anyone can see through that material (blindfold) if the eyes have special cells to detect that electromagnetic radiation. It still might be a difficult process since the blindfold used might not have smooth surface, so it requires more concentration or may be pain by the eyes to read the text. It just seems like classical analogue of quantum barrier tunneling phenomena otherwise.
    This is an explanation which require more scientific investigation on the girl in question.

    • You made an assumption that the girl can actually see through the blindfold and not by using some trick as others here have pointed out. Only after ruling out that the girl isn’t cheating, can you make your assumption. It is funny that you had to propose new hypotheses (special eye cells, quantum tunneling on a blindfold scale) based on an untested premise.

      • Austin Noronha

        How silly of us to believe without analysing the things before. I would say in addition to Dr.Nayak’s analysis just observe her head posture. While talking to the anchor she looks down and while she is asked to identify people she walks close to them with a raised head. With this posture anyone can make out the gender by getting to see the footwear (male/female), pant and the lowest part of the upper dress peeking in between her cheek and the blindfold. Did anyone notice her gesturing to the anchor not to tighten the blindfold much? Did anyone test by making the people wear the footwear of the opposite sex?

  • An Indonesian article exposing the trick: http://www.faktailmiah.com/2010/09/08/aktivasi-otak-tengah.html

    As Randi says, in all cultures you see the same old tricks being rehashed and given a new form.

  • hi nice article … i came across this fake girl on sony.
    I could clearly see that everything was just a part of drama and nothing else and even the judges being a part of it.The same act was performed by another girl and was declared as cheating.

    But, I think she got an edge cause of the certificate she is carrying with her and as rightly pointed the mistake lies with the HRD ministry.

  • It was Gandhari not Kunti who put her powers into Duryodhana.

  • I think this girl is amazing…
    One need imagination to believe use logic to kill the magic

  • it might be her talent but not a supernatural power..there is vast difference between supernatural power and talent

  • I do agree that this is not a miracle but you cannot say this is completely fake. It is our duty to explain the phenomena how she does. With blind folded and even at low angle, it is very tough to read. What is her eye power ? If she is doing this, it is not just peeping through the gap, there is more in this, that needs to be explained !

  • Here’s James Randi debunking that exact claim (Russian girl):

    www(dot)randi.org/jr/022202.html

    Great work though, Narendra!

  • Well, I dont know where to post this but I just wanted to bring to your group’s awareness on this topic –

    What do you think about the Program on Discovery Science – Stan Lee’s Superhumans.It is a program where they showcase people who have different unique capabilities that makes them be extraordinary to others.For example, a person has the capacity to survive cold, then there is a guy who eat anything.They try to do a medical examination to find if there is any difference when compared to others.Some of them have been found to be physiologically different while some have developed these features as a result of training their mind.

    What do you think about the authencity of this program,
    Especially on this guy – current Mohan,who has the capacity to survive any amount of electric current passed through his body

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YVFUaU7zcI&feature=related

    Do you think the claim has been properly validated?,or is fraud or he is physiologically different but he is an exception

    Thanks,

    • Satish Chandra

      You could post it on the forums. Or if you are on facebook, on the Nirmukta group.

    • But nearly every person appearing in that program will be checked for his supernatural powers by some doctors or professors. And many powers have come to them due to their practice also. I have watched many episodes of this program including that Current-Mohan episode. I think the ones showed in that program are true. Now-a-days even History TV 18 is also showing it. So, it needs to be true

  • To Nirmukta or who ever has written this article

    When you have aired this up on TV with your exclusive interview, why hadn’t you put up video here. Without any proof, its waste of your time and our time.

    Agree with Qualia that some people have supernatural powers. Any video of your interview?

  • Sachchidanand Dhar

    To The Rationalists Society Of India:
    Sir,
    A very common fallacy among the people is that a pregnant woman should not cut any vegetable or chicken, mutton etc. during Solar Eclipse or Lunar Eclipse. I submit a suggestion to expose this fallacy by the Rationalists Society of India. They should find one of their pregnant woman members, or pregnant family females or pregnant believers in rationality- to cut lots of vegetables, chicken, mutton, lemon, Round yellow/ red pumpkins etc. during Solar/Lunar eclipse. This experiment should be carried out using scientific methods and fully recorded for posterity apart from being witnessed by Government People, NGOs, representatives of religious organisations, MCI etc. Post delivery , the baby should be shown to be unaffected. That would really expose the blind-believers. I will change my views also.

    • This inspirational chapter from 1926 in the autobiography of Gora, shows the way.
      Here is an excerpt:

      On joining me, Saraswati left orthodox habits and adopted the atheist attitude. An incident was significant in this context. At Colombo she was pregnant with the first child. When she was carrying the fourth month, there was a solar eclipse in the afternoon. Hindu orthodoxy imposes the disciplines of silence and shutting up in a dark room for pregnant women at the time of any eclipse. Non compliance is threatened with mutilations of the child to be born. But Saraswati saw Buddhist, Moor and Burgher women freely moving about in the streets of Colombo, regardless of the time of the eclipse. Surely, some of these women must be pregnant too. If the evils of infringement were real, all pregnant women should be equally affected and their children should be maimed, irrespective of faiths. But that doesn’t happen. Therefore, the disciplines relating to eclipse are a superstition of Hindu faith. Thinking along these lines, Saraswati transgressed the taboos at the time of the eclipse. After the full period, the delivery was normal and the child also was normal. The experience equipped her with the credit to persuade other pregnant women to give up the superstition. We have nine children now. Both solar and lunar eclipses occurred at different periods of her pregnancies. Nothing untoward happened to us on account of the violations of restrictions imposed by custom on pregnant women during eclipses.

      • Sachchidanand Dhar

        I have not heard of mutilation by exposure. Kindly note that Suspected Mutilation is by Use of Knives to Cut Vegetables and Meat etc.
        I have also read of an experiment carried out by a lady scientist in India on pregnant rats etc. which proved that it was not a superstition. I do not have the details to offer to you though.
        All one rationalist has to do is to carry out a scientific experiment of her/his own and publish the findings.

        • The burden of proof is on the party making the more extraordinary claim. In this case, non-contact mutilation is clearly an extraordinary claim. How extraordinary the claim is can be gauged by asking the questions in the Shermer Baloney Detection kit. The extraordinary evidence for the extraordinary claims can therefore legitimately be demanded by rationalists from the claimants.

  • I saw the videos and unfortunately i have to say that i jus wasted 30 mins of my life on it. I am shocked as to how in such modern times, people can be so ignorant. Its a clear case of cheating and trickery. Stupid female and a lot of stupid people to follow

  • I respect the girl’s confidence … she really had the guts fool so many people or may be she was forced to do it .. For all anti-science people — Why did she even open the book to read .. she could have read it without opening the book. There was no need to blindfold her..they could just cover the book,or any object and asked her to describe it…this could easily (in)validate her claims..
    By the way, there r some people who can see UV …and that is simple to explain ( it happens after cataract removal surgery ).. http://www.petapixel.com/2012/04/17/the-human-eye-can-see-in-ultraviolet-when-the-lens-is-removed/

  • faisal sahar

    james randi foundation was holding a milion dollar for any one who can even cause a spec of dust to move from its place to another by super natural phenomonen, many people came forward with their claims and all of them were exposed as fraudesters.

  • reading about https://www.google.co.in/#q=synaesthesia said to have a role in blindfold reading.
    I have witnessed students myself being able to read with the blindfold… where we made sure they couldnt see from any of the sides of the blindfold ties.

    pls have a look at this term aswel

  • now this type of cheating is going in kids training also http://www.gmaindia.in/
    here they claim to activate some part of brain which will enable child to see blind folded. They are getting a thriving business any way. An investigation on claims needed.

  • Recently 1-2 days back , there was such more kids showing this ability on ZEE NEWS and IBN 7

  • It is possible. I pity anchor’s ability to understand basic science behind such technique and appreciate yogic capability that can be acquired through meditative mind while balancing right and left brain.

    Even my 12 year old son can read easily and not just what can be staged – he can do ride bicycle also in blindfold. I have taught this skills to 3 other children in apartment and would do for 10 more this weekend. Mr. Nayak need to read more about brain and learn why such thing is possible then strive to prove it wrong.

    • My son also doing same but i want to know the longterm effect

    • Thank you. You could train a hundred more or probably all the children in the country to peek through blind folds which you think are fool proof. Let any one of them see through the blind fold which I shall put. Perhaps it is you who who needs to think a little more about the gullibility of parents like yourself which is a part of the process of learning more about the human brain.
      There is a challenge for you too. If your son can pass the tests which I shall put him through under conditions specified by me, I can gift you an amount of 5 lakhs. But, the catch is that you have deposit 10% of the amount as a deposit which will forfeited if he fails the test. If he passes it the amount will be refunded along with the prize money. However, the tests will be designed me and it will be under fraud proof conditions which I will specify.

  • I don’t think its not possible..we humans possess powers that we can’t imagine..Just need to have an open mind..on what grounds can you claim that she was fake? She is a child. Of course she would cry if she has to undergo such trials..

    • Narendra Nayak

      She cried because her mother prompted her to to do that when she was off camera. That was because, they knew that I was going to expose her. If they do not want to ‘expose’ the child to rigorous testing it only means one thing- the are faking it.
      The whole thing is that they want to make hay with the so called ‘extraordinary talent’ which is just peeking through the gap between the nose and the blind fold. Would they or any one who claims that their children can see blind folded willing to subject them to proper testing by us? People just want to make claims as long as they are not properly tested or questioned.

    • Captain Mandrake

      **we humans possess powers that we can’t imagine**

      Yes, powers like unbelievable gullibility.

      • Very rightly said! Right now I am investigating into one more such which goes in the name of Mid brain mastery!The write up will follow soon and this the preliminary report-http://www.mangaloretoday.com/exclusive/Mastery-over-the-Mid-brain-.html

  • Michael Dsouza

    This is the same trick similar to the bike riding in busy road blind folded.

  • hi, there is another teaching center. But from the tv interviews, i dont notice the children’s cheating. But the can read blidfolded. Can someone help me to explain this? I doubt the ability of them reading blindfolded but i cant find the loopholes in the video.
    The course is claim to help children to memorise things easily

    http://grc.com.my/index.php?categoryID=560

  • Narendra Nayak

    They are trained to do that. They peek through the gaps and just note where they hold what they read.

  • Today I just happened to visit one such child.
    I couldn’t believe….I had doubt what you correctly pointed out in the article.
    Only I wonder how they can teach children to lie in the name of the business.
    And why our government, activist not taking necessary steps to stop such things.
    Even in November I saw article on the subject endorsing blind fold reading.
    To my surprise one of the magazine published by My company also mentions successful blind fold reading. Couldn’t believe really they are promoting something without verification.
    Somewhere this should stop.

  • Such tv shows have been continuously aired in local tv channel in Assam for last two days. I wonder nobody has come forward to expose it.

  • Narendra Nayak

    I think you should draw the public attention to my challenge to the m to read after my blindfold is put. My write up on that will be on nirmukta in a day or two.

  • This is a complete fraud.
    Last week I have spotted some TV channels of NE india such as NEWS LIVE (tatasky channel no 998) showing such kind of demonstration under banner of some organisation called “Brain Magic”.

    The way of demonstration is same. Like first put some cotton on eyes and then use a piece of cloth to so called blindfold. However, by observing closely it can be found obviously that those children were taught to peep through the small gap.

    Even I will pay a prize money of Rs 50,000/- if some one lets Mr Narendra Nayak to conduct the test as per his condition. If test fails, the person who claims to be superpower guy has to pay me 10% of the prize money i.e. 5,000 to me.

    • We are ready to accept you challenge. Pls lety me know your specific conditions.

      • First of all let us know what you think you can do. Read the number of a sealed currency note? Read something held in front of the the blind folded eyes? First specify that before we can go ahead. I don’t want to waste my time with those peeking through the gaps between the blindfold and the bridge of the nose and identifying things held under it.
        These are only the gross outlines-The blind folding will be done by us and the subject is not allowed to change its configuration in any way.No one shall be allowed to provide any sensory inputs except us. The material will be brought by us for identification, reading etc. An undertaking in writing should be given by the person taking up the challenge that the subject who is performing the the required feat is fully competent to give us permission to investigate all the aspects of the challenge. An amount of 2% of the corpus put as stakes should be deposited with us subject to a minimum of Rs.10,000. The test will be conducted at Mangaluru and the expenses of the travel, stay etc. shall be borne by you. The fine print will be worked out subject to these broad outlines. You can also go through this.http://nirmukta.com/2015/03/26/midbrain-activation-and-mastery-a-skeptics-view/ for the latest on this.

        • Thank you for replying.
          The details of the blindfold activities can do will convey you soon.
          I also have conditions for accepting the challenge.

    • Dear Vinoj
      My name is Subin and I am also exploring about midbrain training. I am writing an article about this training and would like to know more . Can you provide more info. Are you from Kerala? Are you having Abha international’s franchisee? Can i have your contact details?

  • Narendra Nayak

    I do not know how I can blindfold the children without touching them. The technique of blindfold will be decided by me and also means by which the objects to be identified cannot be seen by peeking. I will use such a blindfolding technique which will be foolproof and will wrap the eye from all sides. Once it is applied no one can touch it. The coloured objects to be identified will be brought by me in bags into which hands can be inserted only from the sides and the object will be identified and will be taken out only after that. No communication of any sort will be allowed with the children once the test is on. The children will be searched for any hidden devices before the test.

  • Narendra Nayak

    Mr. Vinoj we are thinking of having the program in Kozhikode or Mangaluru. I will post more details here as my laptop dongle is not working in this place and I cannot type much on this. In short I have no trust in your blind folds and unless you are ready to be tested with my blindfolds you need not proceed further. You may also note that I may use other things to prevent the subject from peeking through gaps.

  • It seems that Vinoj Surendran has accepted defeat. Why the silence? If it is not cheating then what is wrong in using a proper blindfold? So if vinoj Surendran is not ready to take up the challenge now we can surely conclude it is pure cheating.

  • Narendra Nayak

    I am told that with the summer vacations approaching, this racket is going into hyperdrive! Let it be decided once for all to how genuine the claims of these midbrain masters are. Come on Mr. Vinoj let us see you show the powers of Midbrain activation!
    If the tests cannot be done under fraud proof conditions it will be construed that the claims are fraudulent and you are taking gullible people for a ride. You are also exploiting children for your dubious claims.

    • As i were in Patiyala, Panjab I could not check my mail for last few days. Yes I accept your condition. My children will read or identify what you shows with the blindfold which u given by u.
      Thank you Dear Friend
      Pls arrange the programme after 13th of this month.
      with regards
      VINOJ

  • Here are the terms and conditions in more detail.Please send me personal details about yourself by mail to narenyen@gmail.com to enable us to draft the agreement which has to be signed before the event is done. A tentative date has been fixed as 19th of April the place as Kozhikode.
    1. Since your claim is that the children will identify objects, read material without any visual stimulus from them we shall be taking measures to see that no such will reach the eyes of the subject to be examined.
    2. Blind fold shall mean any implement of any material used to block visual access to the object to be identified which may mean something fixed around the eyes or anywhere else between the eyes of the subject and the object. It may be one or more such.
    3. If colours, numbers of notes will be read it shall be done in an enclosed container into which the hands of the child shall be inserted in a fool proof manner. The object shall be put in a tube of opaque cloth with a double fastening. The access will be allowed only after loosening one, insertion of the arm to its maximum and then tightening the same after which the fastening around the object to be identified will be removed. The objects will be put into numbered such containers. Only after proper recording of the observations will the objects be taken out.
    4. The answers are to be specific. In case of written material placed for identification the exact reproduction is needed. In case of a currency note the denomination, currency, serial number are to be given.
    5. You shall be allowed to first demonstrate what the children are capable of doing using your own props and blindfolds but that shall have no bearing whatsoever on the tests which we shall conduct using our own material and conditions which shall be put into further detail before the test is conducted by us.
    6. Once the children are going to be ready to be tested by us you will have to desist from giving them any sort of communication. Any such attempts shall be deemed to be per se malpractice and the results shall be held to be invalid.
    7. I am placing the stake amount as rupees five lakhs only. You will have to put in 10% of the same from your side as deposit which shall be forfeited if you fail. The amount shall be given to you only if the children pass the tests with 90% results. The exact details shall be furnished before the start of the event.
    8. Since the whole trial involves minor children you should provide an undertaking that the consent of the parents has been obtained for the demonstration.
    9. In case of any legal dispute the jurisdiction shall lie in Mangalore.
    10. A detailed agreement shall be drafted and signed before the beginning of the test.

  • Narendra Nayak

    Hall booked at Kozhikode. Time fixed at 2pm on 19th April. Vinoj Surendran get ready to prove the efficacy of Mid brain mastery.

    • Dr. Viswanathan.C

      Dear Mr.Vinoj,
      I am Dr.C.Viswanathan, chief editor of the magazine “Yukthiyugam”, published from Kozhikode. As noted above by Dr. Narendra Naik , and as I informed you over phone, Date, time and venue has been finalized. Sunday, 19th April 2015, K.P.Keshava Menon memorial hall, Opposite Corporation stadium, Pavamani road, Kozhikode ( Calicut) 2.30 pm.

  • I m really thrilled to witness d moment of blindfold reading being exposed by Mr Narendra on 19th April at Kozhikode. After watching d X-ray kid programme here in Assam of similar nature in local tv channel I raised dis issue in local news paper. One Dr Nanda Kishore Sarma Director of Mind Magic India threw me an open challenge to disprove their children’s ability of blindfold reading. Well, I m simply a member of Science n Rationalist Association of India, d head office being in Kolkata. But personally I cud nt start any activities in my area as I cud not even open local branch out here due to lack of similar minded person n so hv bn limiting my activities only in writing and delivering speech against this type of pseudo science n superstitions. I shl be happy if u kindly upload ur programme of 19th April which I m sure a 100% victory over Mr Vinoz. All the best wishes.
    With Thanks.
    Dr R Roy, Tezpur , Assam.

  • Narendra Nayak

    What news Mr. Vinoj? I have not had any mail from you? Only two weeks more for the challenge!

  • I clearly stated my claims and conditions earlier.
    they were
    Our Children will do the following things with blind fold
    1. Will Read any book in English/Malayalam
    2. will identify the object which is about 10 feet distance.
    3. Will read a message or an incoming call Number in your mobile phone.
    4.can read the number of a currency. and much more…..
    Our conditions.

    You should not harass the children by asking any questions.
    You should deposit the amount offered to a third party
    Do not touch the children while they performing.

    But unfortunately your terms and conditions contains much more.
    You should understand one thing this is not a magic or superstition.It has its own science. Science is not made by humane but it was identified from the universe by scientists. Every actions in the universe has a science.As you know, nobody can identify an object which were hided from our vision. So once again I say that you can block only their eyes not the object. The objects should be visible to the audience also. It is not compulsory to give the objects in the hands of children.
    The material used for making blind fold should be a soft opaque material which does not make any discomfort or irritation to the children. These are my humble requests for the sake of our children. They are not a machine/ saint/ magician but mere children. Thank you for treating and considering them as your own son/daughter.
    Thank you.
    have a great day
    VINOJ SURENDRAN

  • Dear Mr.Vinoj Surendran,
    Please note that my challenge was for blind folded reading. That means the ability see through opaque material and not for peeking or blinkered reading. You were very confident of the abilities of the children to read blind folded and not blinkered reading or peeking. While you claim that it is not a superstition, we would have to change the very definition of superstition if ability to respond to visual stimulus under blind folded conditions has to be called anything else. I do agree it is not magic because magicians never make any claim to paranormal abilities. Since it is neither it must be something else- I would call it as cheating. Not only that you are doing so you are also encouraging children to do so. If your children have the ability to see through ‘soft opaque material’ as you claim I would let them keep their eyes wide open and provide the objects to be identified to them under the soft opaque material that you use for blind folding. Again, I do not see any reason why the audience should see the object to be identified they will see if after it is identified. We are not checking the ability of the onlookers but that of the children. After they identify the object to the degree of specificity desired by us the object will be shown to all for verification.
    Again I know that it is easy to fool parents who will believe anything nice said about their children and you do that. But, when it comes to us hard boiled investigators of paranormal phenomena who have seen innumerable charlatans you are trying to be emotional. You are used to that- putting forward your children to support your claims. Like I said when a crusty, balding old man is pitted against a cute kid ready to shed tears at the drop of a hat we know where the sympathy of the audience will be! Do not worry I will use only soft material to block visual access. There are swimming goggles lined with soft material on the inside where it touches the skin and we shall use them only and not any metallic cup! But remember there is no gap through which they can peek and I shall paint them black from outside as I do not want to cause any allergy to the delicate skins of the children. By the way I find it strange that I should not harass the children by asking questions – children are asked questions from their parents, neighbours, teachers and even by strangers. So, why should asking questions be harassment? Suppose I give a colored object to the child under the cover and ask him/her to tell me the color it could be said to be harassment! As for the claims of what you do is science please give us any published material from any indexed, peer reviewed journals or standard text books. And again you are telling me that I can block their eyes but not the object why? If the material is placed between their eye and the object as every blind fold does, why should it matter where it is kept? Why should the audience see it? I am not checking the ability of the audience but that of the children. This very claim sounds fishy that there may be some way of conveying the information to the child! To rule out this I may take steps to search the child for any hidden communication devices and also block any audible hints by placing sound proof head phones to block the ears.
    It would be good for you remember that I am putting forward my stake of 5 lakhs not as a gift to you or the children but as a recognition of the ability to see blind folded- that is see through opaque material between their eyes and the object to be identified. So, before that I need to be convinced that the ability exists and to my satisfaction- not that of you or the children or the audience because it is my hard earned money. I order to prove your seriousness about the affair you have to make out a check for me for 10% of the amount and I too will make out a check in your name for Rs. 5 lakhs and the terms and conditions shall be put down on a stamp paper of the required value and the agreement drawn up by my lawyer. So, you will have to mail me your full name, your father’s name, age residential address, the details of cheque and its number etc.
    If you do not have the confidence in the ability of yourself or the children you may ask for waiver of the financial conditions and we will consider it but if you want the reward you have to keep the deposit amount. So, stop making lame excuses and come to the point -are you afraid that your cheating is going be exposed?
    Narendra Nayak

  • Vinoj know when he fails your test he will loose 50000 plus his current business of cheat brain. So the safer side is not to come forward. At least he can continue cheating poor students and parents and get regular money. well done vinoj your genius seems to be working well.

  • Sorry Mr.Subin….
    We are born to win…
    We are always on safe side….
    we will do all the things as claimed by us.
    This is not a business…
    At first u study the definition of business.
    God Bless You SUBIIN

  • Dear MR.Narendra,
    We will inform you the full details and our conditions and number of the cheque directly into you mail id provided within 2 days.
    Thank you
    Have a great day

  • https://youtu.be/EE2a1Fl2nEs

    above is the link to video which shows clearly that children fail to perform when a proper blind fold is used.

  • We claimed that our children will do any activity using blindfold. That means you can block their eyes preventing visual access from the object. As you know a vision is completed only when the light is reflected from the object to the brain.This is the science for seeing an object. Everybody sees through eyes but our trained children see through pineal gland,the audio visual CPU of the brain So you are not allowed to block or hide the OBJECT.
    LET US MEET AT CALICUT
    Wish you all the best

  • Glad that you have made some new discoveries about visual pathways of the brain and that your children can see through the pineal gland. So, it will not be needed to hold the object in front of the their eyes. You are also agreeable to block their vision by all means at our disposal which would mean any device which is certified for human use for cosmetic, sport or medical use. The said object to be identified will be also held at an angle decided by us and it will be visible to the subject and the subject only until it is identified to the degree of accuracy and specificity required by us.Once it is done it will be shown to the audience for verification. You may also note that the objects to be identified will not be shown to any one before they are displayed to the subject under testing.I will be holding the objects and asking the questions in English. If you need them to be translated into Malayalam Dr.Viswanathan will do it. Once the testing commences no one from your side will be allowed to communicate in any way to the children until the testing is over which includes any words of sympathy, encouragement, criticism or whatsoever. They will be also subjected to a thorough body search before the commencement. In case of girls it will be done by our women behind closed doors. The legal agreement to be executed is being prepared by our lawyers and in case you want the grant of Rs.5 lakhs you will have to keep as surety a sum of Rs.50,000 which will be refunded along with the grant money if you satisfy our requirements which specify 90% correct answers in identification of the objects brought for testing by us to the degree of specificity and accuracy specified by us. This will be put down in writing before the commencement of the test.Each object to be identified will be done by one individual only. But, you can change the subject during the testing if needed.

  • Vinojsurendran

    Dear sir
    Thank you for your advice. First of all, I just want to tell you that we are also from science background. Science itself is changing, and it is it’s nature.Each new scientific findings prove that the older version was wrong.Don’t pretend yourself as the apostle of all the scientific things in this world. I myself is doing a research in the same subject. I humbly remind you that it is not at all my subject of interest to convince you anything.If you want yourself to be convinced, you just search for such journals, if available.As far as I’m concerned I know very well what I’m doing.
    Coming to the matter, our children are seeing through their midbrain as I told you. But as they are children, their mind believes that they are seeing with their eyes. So the thing to be identified should be placed before them and you can prevent them seeing with their eyes. “seeing without eyes” is our claim and not performing a magic show. But in the near future they can even see behind the head or beyond the wall and the only thing is to convince their mind about their ability.
    And about your discussion page, many people called me and said that they have posted some comments in favour of me, but not got published. Why are you preventing people from expressing their views.You just post comments in favour of you only.That’s not fair and I request you better to stop this fake discussion page.

    thanking you

    • Satish Chandra

      Vinoj,

      There was only ONE comment that was in “favour” of you and that comment looked like a sockpuppet, which is why it wasn’t approved. So quit making excuses.

  • dear Mr. Narendra
    Let me remind you something again and again. This is a challenge. A challenge, whether it is about “midbrain” or anything else, have to follow some conditions. Let’s go the starting of this “challenge”. You have written a story about “Exposing the “Miracle” Of Blindfolded Sight- The Story of Ranjana Agarwal” and ‘discovered’ that the miracle of blind fold is by peeping through the blindfold material and challenged to prove otherwise. When I joined the discussion, I have clearly mentioned my conditions. My challenge was that our children can see things that ordinary man cannot. Can anyone see after using blindfold? The only thing you can do is to check whether the child is peeping through the blindfold or make sure that the vision is blocked by using proper blind fold ,as you said in the case of Ranjana agarwal. But what has happened is that, as days passed, you kept on changing the terms & conditions. For that you are saying that nothing can be taken for granted, this is hard earned money, etc . Yes Bose, no one is getting easy money. Everyone have to work hard to earn some money. But it’s you who have come up with the challenge. If you are so concerned about your money better keep silent.
    Now your intentions are quite clear. You want to get some fame at our expense. Really you have no genuine interest at all to know the capabilities of mid brain stimulation. You only want to prove that you are “something”. But you are mistaken Mr. Narendra. You have met a wrong person. I know very well what I’m doing and our children are the future stars. At least I’m 100% confident about the effectiveness of our system, but you are not. That’s why you keep on changing the conditions. I’m quite sure that people like you will be stunned at the forth coming developments in this field. I know ,again you will be doing your duty of making fake challenges and try to fool the public. You please go on and if you are ready to accept the challenge at the above mentioned condition, please inform me.

    • It is you who are fooling the public claiming on your site that you can make a child a genius in two days!Of course it does not say a word about the fee you are going to charge for it. Money does not come easily. It does not if you are a teacher in a medical college for three decades and work hard to teach scientific facts to students. Perhaps we should have claimed to make a child a genius in two days and collected money from gullible parents who would believe that. The write up here does not have a word about any reward. When I brought up the topic it was you who wanted to take it up. If you will kindly open your eyes and see through them( and not your pineal gland) you have also said that you will give the cheque number and the details later. You have also said that you are ready to block all visual access to the light from the object to the eye of the subject. You have also claimed in your mails to me that the children are seeing though the pineal gland. Now that you are afraid of being exposed you are trying to back track!
      Regarding fame at your expense it is we who are spending for the event and not you. If you think you are a well known person just google your name and check. In fact you have commented on a write up of mine which was put up in 2010 and now claim that I want fame at your expense! Very funny. It was commented on this site by some one that you will lose your money and your business if you take up the challenge. I think that is coming true.
      Your children who were first seeing through the pineal gland have now become ordinary and cannot see through blind folds!What happened to their pineal glands? They got suddenly atrophied? We have anticipated this from you and we have alternative plans in case you do not turn up. We have been dealing with frauds who keep changing their stands when they get cornered. If you will kindly see here itself you have agreed to blindfolding the children and now you are asking a rhetorical question- can any one see through a blind fold? I never said that but you said so. You said that your children can see through their pineal gland which needs light from the object and I agreed to that.Even though I found it strange that the children who can see through an opaque blind fold held in front of their eyes cannot do that when the same material is held in between their eyes and the object at a distance, I agreed to your condition. If I have made any relaxations in terms and conditions it was at your behest.
      If any one wanted publicity it was you who wanted it claiming that your children have shown their talents in front of rationalists and media. Now that you are realising that it will result in exposure you are trying to find excuses to run away.
      Now that you have realised that fooling gullible parents into believing that their child is the greatest in the world and the hidden talents can be developed by joining your classes is one and living up to your claims is another, I am afraid that your promise of meeting us at Kozhikode is not going to be kept! Since we are used to dealing with the likes of you we always have alternative plans.

    • Lol. So typical of these people who claim to do supernatural stuff. They’ll be extremely confident when the challenge is made but once they figure out that they’re not going to be able to demonstrate their claims, they start to back out giving all sorts of incredibly lame excuses.

      If your claims are really true dear fellow, then you should be able to demonstrate it without asking for all these concessions in the conditions of the challenge. “The children think they are seeing through the eye” seems like the sort of incredibly lame excuse that people start putting out once they realize that they are cornered.

      Also, it seems that you have no idea about what “Burden of Proof” means. You are the one making the “fantastic” claim that children can read blindfolded when there is absolutely no evidence of such an ability. The challenge exists but it is up to you to abide by the conditions of the challenge as specified by the rational people. In fact, Mr. Nayak should not have allowed any concessions at all.

      Of course, the most likely explanation is that you, Mr. Vinoj know perfectly well that midbrain activation is complete bollocks but you can’t say that right? You’re making far too much money of those unsuspecting parents.

  • Vinoj where is the change in terms?

    this is what you claimed on March 30, 2015 5:46 pm

    We are ready to accept your challenge.
    Our Children will do the following things with blind fold
    1. Will Read any book in English/Malayalam
    2. will identify the object which is about 10 feet distance.
    3. Will read a message or an incoming call Number in your mobile phone.
    4.can read the number of a currency. and much more

    This is what you said on April 9, 2015 6:14 pm

    We claimed that our children will do any activity using blindfold. That means you can block their eyes preventing visual access from the object.

    This is the 7 th condition mentioned by Naik on April 4, 2015 5:24 am

    7. I am placing the stake amount as rupees five lakhs only. You will have to put in 10% of the same from your side as deposit which shall be forfeited if you fail. The amount shall be given to you only if the children pass the tests with 90% results. The exact details shall be furnished before the start of the event.

    Now on 10 th you are saying that he is changing conditions. Look at the previous comments and see for yourself who is getting afraid.
    It is very clear from your response that you are afraid of loosing your Rs 50,000 plus reputation.
    Naik has clearly mentioned that if you want reward you need to put 10 persetage else test can be done to show the ability but no reward. It is very clear from the previous exchanges.
    Surely you have the freedom to backup now if you are sure to fail. That is your choice. If you are confident children can see without using their eyesight then it is a good opportunity for you to get real publicity. Publicity for you can be en-cashed easily that is not the case with Naik. So it seems that you were looking for some quick publicity and now you realized that your children cannot perform with proper blind fold. So you choose to move away from April 19th. Best wishes.

  • Lets go ahead without money from both side….Dont put this as money challenge to prove he to be wrong…because our purpose of getting truth gets defeated here, as we just want one result out of it that he is wrong….Instead try to be neutral side just to know is that true.

  • Sachin
    it is Vinoj who should decide whether money should be involved or not. Both terms are clerly mentioned in earlier conditions. If he wants money as reward he has to follow thew condition for that if he is just showing the ability then that is also possible. Please check previous comments to see the details. Vinoj can have three options face the challenge with money, face the challenge without money, or move away from challenge mentioning lame excuses. Let him choose. There are many like me eagerly wants to see the truth. Hope vinoj doens’t discourage us

    • DEAR SUBIN,
      I never discourage you .
      at least you should realize it as it is very familiar to you. however it is my opinion that was not a right action for you posted the video in the youtube, you are very aware that it is possible.

      • Dear Vinoj
        I am well aware what is possible and what is not possible. In my video i have shown same things that normally any Midbrain people do. But I did with a trick not with any special brain ability. I am testing children to know whether they are using the same trick as mine or not. But so far I haven’t come across a single child who can genuinely do what is claimed. If you can show some children who can see with proper blind folding I will surely speak and write with that in mind.
        Hope you will show that on 19th. Best wishes and thanks

  • Narendra Nayak

    Sachin, there is no mention of any money in the writeup of 2010. Of came in only in Vinoj’s reaction andy offer. The offer is open without any financial implications. It is for him to decide. I have kept the money ready.

  • I am not interested in such controversy.We have already accepted your challenge.
    Our Children will do the following things with blind fold
    1. Will Read any book in English/Malayalam
    2. will identify the object which is about 10 feet distance.
    3. Will read a message or an incoming call Number in your mobile phone.
    4.can read the number of a currency. and much more
    May I humbly remind you one thing that MY CLAIM WAS OUR CHILDREN WOULD DO SOME ACTIVITIES WITH BLIND FOLD.
    So you have right to provide your own blindfold..
    if you are ready to accept my challenge please come forward.
    We are accepting this challenge not for fame popularity or money. But just only to make you realize the power and potential of every child if tapped in the right way can create a divine society.

  • LET US MEET ON 19th April @ Calicut

  • The blind fold will be a device applied to the face of the child to prevent any light from reaching the eye from any angle and it will be applied by me. Meet you at Calicut.

  • Vinojsurendran

    Dear Mr. Narendra Naik,
    I would like to inform you that our children have inconveniences to perform in such a negative atmosphere. Besides, their parents are unwilling to use the children as a tool for any such experiment. However I shall not step back from your challenge. I assure that it is possible. So I hereby suggest a new solution for satisfying you all.
    You send us any normal child aged between 5 & 13. We will enable that child for doing blindfold activities in 10 days. You just pay only Rs.100 as a Dakshina as it is compulsory for this training. So that you can do any experiment with that child, and i assure you he/she will do any blindfold activities with your preventing measures. Since the guardian of the child is you, there won’t raise any inconvenience. If the child performs even in the preventing measures, you need to pay me only the course fee of training
    with regards,
    Vinoj Surendran

    • Narendra Nayak

      Don’t worry we were expecting this from you. We have plan B, C, D, etc. etc.
      Even if I send some one to be trained by you you can always say that the candidate is not suitable etc.
      I know very well that you people will make such claims and back out when properly challenged. You are not the first one of this sort.

    • Vinoj
      you really disappoint me and many. I was under the impression that you will come to the challenge with few children. Facing a challenge and failing is more dignified than saying lame excuse at the last minute. Really sorry for you. Now it is sure that you are afraid of failure and keeping a safe stance.
      any body can be trained to do blind fold reading with no age limit in less than 5 minutes without any sort of dakshina or training fee.
      Love and regards

  • Vinojsurendran

    Dear Nayak,
    We have no worries… Happiness is the key to success.
    I never say your candidate is not suitable but
    the candidate should be in the age group between 5 and 13.
    Should be a normal child.
    Shouldn’t have any sign of MR/Autism/Down syndrom etc…
    If you are ready come forward.

  • Narendra Nayak

    I do not need you to train any one I can do that in 30 seconds flat to those whom I want to. Tomorrow there is a press conference in Mangaluru to demonstrate that. I don’t need you indoctrinating the children to lie that they are seeing blind fold when they are actually peeking through the gaps. You have chickened out and now do not make any more excuses.

  • https://youtu.be/hAHAoykYkpw

    Rs 25000/ to learn this! Any body can do this . An easy trick can be learned in less than five minutes

    If you are ready to accept my request and send me your own child… then cry out….

    Vinoj Surendran

    • Vivek Koppikar

      Vinojsurenderan,
      Please take up prof. Narendra Nayak’s challenge and show the world that he is wrong and the phenomenon of seeing through solid objects is real and true.
      I guess that will not only reveal to the world hitherto unknown Science but may also yield a noble for you and your colleagues!
      Go for it my friend. If you don’t, people will be inclined to think that you are a fraud. We don’t want that happening, do we?

      Cheers

    • Please take up Prof. Nayak’s challenge, if you are confident of your technique!

    • If the children’s parents are not giving consent for their children to participate, why don’t you yourself come and demonstrate these abilities Vinoj? If you have any integrity at all, come yourself in person and take up this challenge.

  • I do not for whom this comment is meant,but assuming that I am also included, I do not get what you are trying to say by the term- then cry out. But, as far as trusting goes I would not trust you to train a puppy. You may coach it to mew instead of bark trying to convince it that it is its natural cry out(to put it in your own language)! With you training children to lie that they are seeing through blind folds when they are actually peeking through the gaps, bragging about taking up our challenge and then chickening out when it is about to be executed, making lame excuses, making promises and not adhering to them, all show that you are a person who cannot be trusted at all. You had a grouse against us saying that this forum is not allowing free comment. When things like this from you are put up here it must be obvious that you were not uttering the truth even then. Our meeting on the 19th is on- the title is now- The fraud of mid brain activation.

  • The comments posted by Vinoj, don’t sound like that of a professional.
    If someone challenges you you gotta face them and prove that they are wrong by your deeds. War of words can only take you so far.
    And most of the frauds do just the latter.

  • Vinoj Surendran,
    Your fraud stands exposed. Under various sections of the IPC fo fraud and cheating, a case can easily be built against you. Unless of course, you accept the challenge and prove that this bogus show you are running is indeed not bogus.

  • Hi Vinoj,

    If your concern is that “children have inconveniences to perform in such a negative atmosphere” then why not send an adult who is emotionally poised for the challenge ?

    Regards

  • Narendra Nayak

    Don’t tell us tall tales about pineal gland. We do not need to look up Wikipedia to learn about it. It is for people like you . Don’t just keep on repeating same things. Activate your pineal gland and see through the blindfold that we shall apply.

  • Dr. Rick Strassman, who conducted extensive research on near-death experiences in the 1990s, asserts that the pineal gland is also responsible for secreting the naturally occurring psychedelic hormone dimethyltryptamine (DMT). Structurally analogous to both serotonin and melatonin, it is believed DMT might help contribute to the visual effects of natural dreaming, near-death experiences, religious visions or other altered states.

    As we have attempted to understand its functions throughout history, the pineal gland has been associated with mystery and myth. René Descartes, for example, dubbed it the “principal seat of the soul,” suggesting it connected the body and intellect. Further, the philosophy of French writer Georges Bataille holds that the pineal gland can be thought of as a blind spot in Western rationality. This could serve to explain why science has merely a partial understanding of its function and secretory activity. From a profound sense of clarity and presence to an increase in physical and mental health and balance, the effects of its proper functioning are wide-ranging and can be difficult to communicate. Further study will provide the elusive link between science and spirituality.

  • Narendra Nayak

    As I told you don’t keep on quoting half baked Wikipedia write ups. Activate your pineal gland and show. Or activate some else’s and show.

  • So Mr Vinod ….what are you afraid of at all…reality comimng out?
    Narendra sir it is very hard to convince indian people about fraudness of these people. Basic fault is in our education system we tought them about mythical world of ramayana mahabharata (beside Science Subject) But dont teach them how to apply science to to find right way….We follow blindly any one who tells things in name of god and miracle…( no wonder why all those Pyramidal Marketing System proliferating rapidly in India taking advantage of this behaviour of general public).
    Sir if you try to prove them to be fraud they will come up with more complex fraud theory which you wont able to prove fraud
    I am docter and find it very hard to do genuine medical practice . People want instant result and magic cure. Many of conditions dont need medicine as they gets cured by bodies own defence mechanism but I found it difficult to convince this to them.. they rather go to Quack and take up some powder gets cure and come back to me saying see i got cure by his medicine….But whe things get worse blame dont goes to Quack and blame it on gods will/ curse…Thats why associating god with medicine saves most of these fraud docter…
    Many times I find advatise in news paper saying “Cure Renal Failure with Herbal Medicine ” We make Kidney failure patient Dialysis Free… they also give interviwe of two three people who got cured…I was suprised with such claim so wanted to find out reality of all theses claim…..I started investigating in detail and found how judiciously they planned and given advatisement so no one get caught in fraud case. First they took advantage of peoples lack of knowledge about renal failure. most of people think that once on dialysis lifelong on dialysis. Thats why they did not mentioned whether it is a acute renal failure ( which can get cured with or without dialysis) or chronic renal failure ( which cant be reversed back to normal and in severe stage need dialysis) . Third – all mentioned patients and reports of creatinine in advatisement were of acute renal failure patient. So see how skillfully they put this ad just to take advantage of peoples lack of knowlege. I approched lawyer who told my case to be weak as all those claim in ad cant be proved to faulse.
    Our strength to show people right path is much less than these fraud peoples strenghh to fool people…..
    You will find hundred of such miscreant fooling people in your neighbourhood.

    Vinoj you did not turn up and some who came and tried to show blindfolded reading flopped when properly tested. I have made the open statement that the so called Midbrain activation enterprises are like beggars using children as props. At least the beggars are more honest- they just beg. They do not make tall claims. I have posted the narrative of the whole proceedings on my FB time line. You and others were taken apart argument by argument there. If you had the honesty to keep up to your word you could have come there and answered. But, since you are used to speak to innocent children who do not know anything you dare not face us.

    You should not harass the children by asking any questions.
    You should deposit the amount offered to a third party
    Do not touch the children while they performing.
    But unfortunately your terms and conditions contains much more.
    You should understand one thing this is not a magic or superstition. It has its own science. Science is not made by humane but it was identified from the universe by scientists. Every actions in the universe has a science. As you know, nobody can identify an object which were hided from our vision. So once again I say that you can block only their eyes not the object. The objects should be visible to the audience also. It is not compulsory to give the objects in the hands of children.
    The material used for making blind fold should be a soft opaque material which does not make any discomfort or irritation to the children. These are my humble requests for the sake of our children. They are not a machine/ saint/ magician but mere children. Thank you for treating and considering them as your own son/daughter.
    Thank you.

    We claimed that our children will do any activity using blindfold. That means you can block their eyes preventing visual access from the object. As you know a vision is completed only when the light is reflected from the object to the brain.This is the science for seeing an object. Everybody sees through eyes but our trained children see through pineal gland,the audio visual CPU of the brain So you are not allowed to block or hide the OBJECT.
    LET US MEET AT CALICUT

    Dear sir
    Thank you for your advice. First of all, I just want to tell you that we are also from science background. Science itself is changing, and it is it’s nature.Each new scientific findings prove that the older version was wrong.Don’t pretend yourself as the apostle of all the scientific things in this world. I myself is doing a research in the same subject. I humbly remind you that it is not at all my subject of interest to convince you anything.If you want yourself to be convinced, you just search for such journals, if available.As far as I’m concerned I know very well what I’m doing.
    Coming to the matter, our children are seeing through their midbrain as I told you. But as they are children, their mind believes that they are seeing with their eyes. So the thing to be identified should be placed before them and you can prevent them seeing with their eyes. “seeing without eyes” is our claim and not performing a magic show. But in the near future they can even see behind the head or beyond the wall and the only thing is to convince their mind about their ability.
    And about your discussion page, many people called me and said that they have posted some comments in favour of me, but not got published. Why are you preventing people from expressing their views.You just post comments in favour of you only.That’s not fair and I request you better to stop this fake discussion page.

    dear Mr. Narendra
    Let me remind you something again and again. This is a challenge. A challenge, whether it is about “midbrain” or anything else, have to follow some conditions. Let’s go the starting of this “challenge”. You have written a story about “Exposing the “Miracle” Of Blindfolded Sight- The Story of Ranjana Agarwal” and ‘discovered’ that the miracle of blind fold is by peeping through the blindfold material and challenged to prove otherwise. When I joined the discussion, I have clearly mentioned my conditions. My challenge was that our children can see things that ordinary man cannot. Can anyone see after using blindfold? The only thing you can do is to check whether the child is peeping through the blindfold or make sure that the vision is blocked by using proper blind fold ,as you said in the case of Ranjana agarwal. But what has happened is that, as days passed, you kept on changing the terms & conditions. For that you are saying that nothing can be taken for granted, this is hard earned money, etc . Yes Bose, no one is getting easy money. Everyone have to work hard to earn some money. But it’s you who have come up with the challenge. If you are so concerned about your money better keep silent.
    Now your intentions are quite clear. You want to get some fame at our expense. Really you have no genuine interest at all to know the capabilities of mid brain stimulation. You only want to prove that you are “something”. But you are mistaken Mr. Narendra. You have met a wrong person. I know very well what I’m doing and our children are the future stars. At least I’m 100% confident about the effectiveness of our system, but you are not. That’s why you keep on changing the conditions. I’m quite sure that people like you will be stunned at the forth coming developments in this field. I know ,again you will be doing your duty of making fake challenges and try to fool the public. You please go on and if you are ready to accept the challenge at the above mentioned condition, please inform me.

    Pineal gland, endocrine gland found in vertebrates that is the source of melatonin, a hormone derived from tryptophan that regulates circadian rhythm (sleep cycle). The pineal gland develops from the roof of the diencephalon, a section of the brain.
    In some lower vertebrates the gland has a well-developed eyelike structure; in others, though not organized as an eye, it functions as a light receptor.
    The pineal gland, the most enigmatic of endocrine organs, has long been of interest to anatomists. Several millennia ago it was thought to control the flow of memories into consciousness. The 17th-century French philosopher-mathematician René Descartes concluded … (100 of 523 words)

      • Do and show. You chickened out on that day and now you want to invite us. You fixed a day and date, we booked the hall. You ran away two days before the program and now you have the temerity to welcome me to your center! High hopes. You ahve been thoroughly exposed.

        • These beggars and white collar thieves will not show up and back up their claims. They prey on the ignorant and the unsuspecting. They corrupt the minds or children and force them to lie on their behalf.

        • salim yousef

          hello Mr. Narendra
          I have heard of a man who is very dedicated to “Expose everything”. I have seen the video of ur exposure. Your methodology is quite interesting…..to harass the poor children & “exposing” some thing. At least show some human behaviour while u prooving that u r “the exposer” of this world…..pity you my dear friend.

          • If you are showing off using children, then the exposure also has to be with the same children, right? How else do you think this could be verified?

            If you have suggestions, most welcome!!!

            The franchise can use the children as showpieces to trap further people, but the same children can’t be assessed by a third party. At that instant, the whole thing becomes harassment.

          • Narendra Nayak

            You can pity yourself who have put your kid for Midbrain activation. When you are displaying kids as specimen in a museum- the claims are subject to verification. The kids who came to the program on 19th were all thrust forward by their parents. Though I insisted that I do not want to humiliate them the parents were keen to show off and you call that harassment of kids? Anyway the whole thing has been videographed specifically because of allegations like this are likely to come up.
            I think that is the main reason why only kids are supposed to be ‘midbrain activated’. They can be easily bullied and mislead into thinking that they are seeing through the blindfold. Let the instructors, shopkeepers or their ilk come forward and be ready to show their activated midbrains. It is said that those who can do, those who cannot teach and that is very much applicable to the teaching done by the midbrain activation gang- teaching children to lie and weeping that they are harassed when exposed.

      • Words of a coward and a fraud. You are a beggar who uses children for your nefarious activities. A liar and a cheat. A charlatan with no integrity or humanity. A blot on mankind itself.

        • dear surya
          plse try to understand the whole thing about the course. ‘mid brain activation’ is only a part of the course. Doing blindfold is not the target of the course. Plse consult atleast a parent before believing such people like Mr. Nayak. There are a lot more in the package for the child & the parents. First of all plse try to understand the things going round the world rather than living like a frog in the well.

          sajikumar

          • What a claim from people who have only one thing to show as their achievement- ‘blind folded’ kids performing feats of seeing things.One has to seek the opinions of parents who are a part of your multi level marketing strategy in which you offer commissions for bringing in new gullible people to fall into your traps? You keep making tall claims of improving memory, intelligence etc.without a shred of evidence. You guys are like those beggars who show babies to solicit alms from people. At least they are more honest they admit that they are begging. You approached a magician to endorse your midbrain activation? You guys should be ashamed of yourselves running rackets teaching children to lie. I am not speaking about any individuals. My comments are applicable to all of you running these rackets called as Midbrain activation,superkids,third eye activation or whatever called.

          • First prove the children can read blindfolded without cheating. If they can’t do what you claim is the basic result of mid brain activation, why would I even consider any higher forms?

            It’s like a parent claiming their toddler can run a marathon, but failing to even crawl when tested.

            So until you prove your tall claims,you are nothing but a charlatan and a fraud who exploits children.

  • for those who couldn’t attend calicut on 19th here is the video. It is in Malayalam
    https://youtu.be/V6dDfGqnZQM

  • There may be an iota of truth as far as right brain & left brain theory is concerned, but I believe it is blown out of proportion to hoodwink people.

    My logic is that if this technique can be learned by the trainers in a short span and taught to the children in a matter of days, then why this astronomical cost.

    There is literally no expense involved except taking care of the children for 2 days, feeding them and make them dance and have fun, followed by meditation and music to “open the 3rd Eye”.

    We should all collectively learn this and become Volunteer Trainers and instead of a “franchisee” teaching 15-20 students in a batch @Rs.15000/- per head for 2 days, we should all strive to teach this to the below 15 population of India free of cost.

    In 10 years we would become a nation of Super Heroes and India would be the Superpower.

    Rupen

    • I have consulted enough number of people about it.The third eye theory is all bunkum. We have been hearing this third eye business since long including the one of the famous third eye activated guy Lhobsang Rampa who was proved to be a fraud.
      All these Midbrain activation fellows have to show are the kids doing the stupid trick of blindfold reading. They are taught to lie. You expect this training to ‘benefit’ the nation? This whole midbrain activation is a racket and they do multilevel marketing making the parents who have already enrolled their children to bring in others for a commission. That is why those who have fallen into the trap refuse to open up because they cannot make more money out of it!A very ingenious way of hidng the truth.

    • dear Rupen
      First of all,the training will extent for 3 months.A mid brain franchisee cannot be made in air. Min specifications should be met for that for eg. deposit & rent for the hall used, setting a theatre with sound & light proof in that hall, audio equipments that costs lakhs, video equipments, Air conditioning,setting up of a generator for running four 2 tone ACs , salary for the faculties, conducting training for parents, giving lifetime support for the children, Food for the training days…and even more including marketing expenses.I am running a franchisee for one year and you can check my bank account to see the amount of money I have earned!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Your very concept of midbrain activation is a fraud. No amount of videos, 2 ton acs and/or instructors is going to change that status. Your instructors are half baked quacks trained by equally ignorant trainers. All that you have show as the success of your so called training are ‘blind folded’ kids peeking through the gaps between blind folds and their noses. Your claims of heightening other senses are all hype. You keep making money by multi level marketing techniques offering incentives to parents who are already ensnared to bring in gullible parents of other children into your traps by peer pressure.
        I have a solution for your financial problems to some extent. Bring the best of your midbrain activated kids for testing under fraud proof conditions with blind folding that I shall do and other such rigorous methodology. You can keep a deposit of Rs.50,000 which will be refunded with 10 times its amount if you succeed. Should you fail, your deposit will be forfeited.There is one organisation in Nasik, Maharashtra which has offered an award of 21 lakhs for the same.

        • dear narendra nyak
          How can your challenge be called ‘testing’? You have declared that the concept is a fraud.then what testing……..?
          Also, may I know who gave you the license to conduct such type of tests all round here……..

          • Our meeting was called exposing the fraud of midbrain activation. You were not invited there. But, you guys came and pushed forward children who got exposed. If you want to know who gave me the right to test the children? The right is given by the father of the fellow who gave you the right to mislead people with false claims.
            Your whole gang of midbrain activators are frauds,cheats and liars.You mislead Gopinath Muthukad, tried to bring him to your side and failed miserably. Now that he has gone to the media exposing your frauds you are becoming more and more desperate. Soon a time will come when parents of the children who have been taken for a ride by you will realise the truth and will be after you. Then be ready to run carrying your two ton acs and audiovisual systems on your head!

    I gave Vinoj, the fraudster, a missed call from Qatar and he called me back. I pretended to be a potential customer and kept him on the overseas call for as much as I could. He must have lost at least Rs.200/- for nothing. That serves him well.

    • Narendra Nayak

      Serves him right. I think we incurred an expenditure of about 20K because of him. Good that you posted it here. Now onwards when he gets a missed call from abroad he will be in a spot whether to call back or not!

      Great work, Austin.

    • Manu Narayanan

      😀 Great work Austin! Serves him right indeed. All such fraudsters should be exposed. But the problem is, it is deep rooted in the society…there is a whole complex structure involved…so its an enormous task to enlighten people!

    Salim Yousef thanks for your offer for support which I do not need. People know my credentials since decades but no one seems to know you or are even bothered about you.

    • vinojsurendran

      dear Narendra Nyak
      First of all, you please understand something. I don’t belong to the ‘midbrain’ team. But as a third man’s view, I am in the feeling that there is a cocus working against ‘mid brain activation’.Say for example two days before, Magician Muthukkad came against this saying that children are using a magical blindfold. But I personally know that there is no magic in the blindfold material. As a man from Trivandrum I know him very well. He is against this because a midbrain activation center is coming near his magic academy and he has a feeling that his business will go down. I know him for years and his genunity. If you have any doubt, come and ask the people of Trivandrum. And also about your performance in Calicut, I am in the feeling that you are trying too much to prove that the mid brain activation is a fraud rather than trying to check whether there is any truth in that. I am a social worker for years and I believe that I should support someone who is being hunted by a group of people without even trying to know the truth. I’m a believer of God, and I can say in this case, the rationalist people joined hands together…if the remaining millions of believers join hands with the ‘midbrain-thirdeye’ team, you cannot manage them. Already there is a beginning of it around us.

        Hi everybody
        I’m Vinoj Surendran, Ingenium India – I’m here to inform you all, especially NIRMUKTA team that My name & email id has been misused by someone to post comments in my name – the post against Mr. Muthukad & Mr. Austin Noronha. Today I got a call from one of my friends regarding the post against Mr. Muthukad as a reply to Mr. Nayk. The name given is Salim. I think it’s Salim Yousef. I don’t know him personally, but I got support from him through emails, face book etc. Mr. Salim, thanks for your support. But you are not supposed to use my name & email id to post your comments. If you have to express your views, please use your name & id. I believe that you have the courage for that. I like the magical performances of Mr. Muthukad & I don’t think that he has got any hidden agenda when he came against the midbrain activation centers because there is no proof for that. May be he was wrongly informed by somebody.
        I’m not at all interested in writing comments in this blog as replies to the comments posted against me because it is not my way especially writing posts to attack people personally . Also it will not generate any result as we keep on arguing all the time.
        This might me the last post by me in this blog. So I have one or two words to say to Mr. Nayk. Sir INGENIUM INDIA is not a mere midbrain activation center. We have been conducting many courses for children & also adults. Our mother organization is AMRUTA CHARITABLE TRUST formed in 2004 and is very active in social-charitable activities. We came across this midbrain activation procedure quite accidently and found it very helpful for children. so we incorporated this segment also in our Ingenium Mind Ignition Training program. As far as I’m concerned, I’m 100% sure about the effectiveness & goodness of this activation procedure and all the parents justified it. We also did that because some institutes were charging high fees for this course. Since we are 100% convinced ourselves, we will stick to our views. I respect you too because you believe that this is a fraud procedure and you stick to your views.
        THIS IS MY LAST POST & I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF SOMEONE POSTS ANY COMMENTS IN MY NAME.

  • S.Inkarsal Pandian

    Hi,
    The Actual Concept of MBA is to activate the Mid Brain, and once activated the child can do all the performance in Blind Fold. Our Childrens can do all the activities like – Colour Indentification, Shape Indentification, Drawing with Crayon, Reading a book from the distance, Observing and conveying whatever you show from a distance of 10 feet (Any thing like Pen, Book, Visiting Card, Watch, Mobile phont, Colour etc. Some of them may be doing fraud on this concept. But actually this is true 100% and i can prove in front of any amount of the audiance.

    As committed you should be ready with your committed amount of Rs 5 Lakhs. Fix up the date, venue place I will bring as many students as you want. Without investigating properly about the Course conducting company do not comment negatively without any proof.

    What you are showing is 100% worst way. I can perform and prove anywhere in india that this Blind Fold doing everything is possible. Do not spoil this concept in India. Few people like you make an immediate commnent on such technology. Whoever wants proof or wants to see any demo keep in touch with me by mail. askmepandian@gmail.com.

    I am S.I.Pandian at Chennai, I have done a through research and development on this concept and verified in various city in India and fourd it is possible and no negarive factor at all. Again i request the viewer to check the right company for MBA Program and then join your child. I have seen excellent result on this concept. I do agree for some few it takes time that is due to the improper co ordination of Parents. In case of the child do not perform we give 100% Money back guarantee also in writting. Once again request all the viewer to verify the training company and then take a decision. OR you can persoanlly check the trained student till you get satisfied.

    • Dear Mr.Pandian,
      Please note the I too have done quite a bit of ‘research’into what you call as ‘blind folding’. So, if you are willing to do all these things with a device which I shall use to block light falling on the eye then you can come forward to take my offer for grant to further develop this ‘science’ of Midbrain activation.
      So, please note I am not entering into any sort of betting with you. You also have to place a deposit of Rs.50,000 with me which will be refunded along with Rs.5 lakhs if you can do the demonstration successfully.
      I suggest you read the the comments on this page before you proceed further.You can also go to these links.http://nirmukta.com/2015/03/26/midbrain-activation-and-mastery-a-skeptics-view/ and http://nirmukta.com/2015/04/26/midbrain-activation-challenge-an-update/. If you are willing to allow us to test your children under fraud proof conditions and keep the security deposit, I will proceed further.
      Since I have a already fixed a program at Bangalore on the 12th of May, you can come there for a preliminary demo without any commitment on our part or yours. A proper demonstration with the terms and conditions can be worked out later. However, even in the one on May 12th the demonstration can be done with the blocking of light falling on the eyes of the child will be done by us only.Since you are from Chennai, you may kindly contact our activists there who will keep in touch or you can post your contact details here.

  • Hi,
    The Actual Concept of MBA is to activate the Mid Brain,

    So, Mr.Inkusall, when you begin a sentence by saying, ” the actual concept of XYZ is”, it implies that you are going to explain what XYZ is, not just expand the term

    ‘The concept of MBA is to activate the mid brain’

    That’s like saying the concept of BBC is to broadcast in british

    That doesn’t explain anything, does it?

    The ‘actual’ concept of MBA is, to generate income by teaching naive kids to peek through an imperfect blind fold, and claim to have taught them to see through blindfolds.

    Why can’t adults be ‘activated’? (they are not gullible enough eh.)

    Why can’t blind kids be taught to see through their mid brain?

    Why can’t this be thought to every child in the school? Put it in the syllabus.?

    Please refrain from answering, these are rhetorical.

    how vision works in humans is well understood by science, the nueroscience,the physics of light, the biochemistry of our eyes, the evolution of eyes through natural selection

    Quacks like you, are a shame on our intellect

    If you still insist, that this works, please publish your research and methodology in a peer reviewed science journal and forget the 500000 rs, you can have the nobel prize.

    I’m really unsure, if mr.pandian is trolling or just protecting his self interests. Should we even bother challenging his claims?

    How eroded must your intuition (let alone reason or critical thinking skills) be, to believe that such a counter intuitive thing like being able to see blind folded is true.

    I understand the lure of quick money, the lure of being able to boast to your neighbour that your kid can see through a blindfold..

    Actually, i don’t understand the parents perspective, what real life skill is the kid learning,
    To be able to see with closed eyes? No
    To see through walls? No
    To see through any blindfold? No
    To see through the blindfold that only you guys can put? Yes
    And see everything with a complete field of view? No, just tiny things kept below the nose,and trivial things like the color of a pen.

    How do you even sell such a lousy concept.

    -_-
    Do we have a dearth of skills to learn in a lifetime? Can i suggest piano or karate classes. -_-

    • We have to have patience when testing such claims. In my first reply I have given him the chance of presenting his kids at Bangalore. I am giving him one more at Palani. Let us see how he reacts.

    • dear Mr.
      First thing is the children are not trained to see through blindfold. It is done just to block the lights from falling their eyes and increase their concentration level. When the children are able to concentrate well, they even can see through the blind fold & this is not a course to teach blindfolding.
      Then, Who told u that midbrain of adults cannot be activated????

      mahesh

      • I do not know who you represent but assuming that you are a spokes person of the Midbrain activation gang- let me tell you to go and read the literature put out by the Midbrain lobby. And if adults Midbrain can be activated why not bring some adult to do the so called ‘blind folded seeing’ stunts? Now you come forward with a new explanation about the blind fold while the chief mentor of a so called Midbrain activation academy says this in a newspaper report-“read books which are placed in front of them even though their eyes are folded with opaque objects. It is through brain empowerment training they have secured the talent to read like that. They could identify the object and the colour too, through the three-month long training course”. If you can understand English you will see that eyes folded with opaque objects does not mean peeking through gaps. Blind folded reading is different from peeking So, when you are out to create a Guinness book of world records entry as claimed in the quoted report it will not be given for peeking through gaps between the nose and the eye.Anyway, it cannot go for an entry into the Limca book of records because the editor has flatly said this-
        Thanks for mail. We have rejected all such applications as we found that many ‘training’ or ‘teaching’ centres are mushrooming across Gurgaon – in fact across country.
        Just to assure you that we are not using this supposed ‘record’.
        Regards
        Vijaya Ghose
        If the blind fold is to merely increase concentration why the cotton pads? If you can ‘activate the Midbrain’ of an adult as you claim- your claims are both ways- because the candidates are always children- start with your self and read through a genuine blind fold. Which will block all light and is applied by us. Things which block only a part of the vision are not called blind folds- they are called blinkers and used mainly on horses.
        If you can read, go through what Vinoj Surendran has said in the comments section of this article. Since he claims to run a shop called as Ingenium India which promises to make a child a genius in two days(presumably by Midbrain activation) he should be more qualified to speak about Midbrain activation than you, though it doesn’t amount to much because it is only a case of one eyed among the blind.

    • Ramdas Menon

      Very well put. But you must also understand that while people don’t really mind being fooled, they VERY MUCH mind being told that they have been fooled.
      Frauds like these proliferate like crazy in this great land of ours

  • Dear Mr.Pandian,
    You have one more place for a preliminary-test Palani on the 28th May. You are at liberty to come there and perform at your cost and responsibility. The procedure of temporarily blocking light from falling on the eye will be done by us. But, it will be only using those devices certified for medical, cosmetic, sports use in humans.Again,the things to be identified will be brought by us.You or your agents will not be allowed to communicate to the children in any way after the blocking of light to the eyes is done. You will also have to stand at a distance specified by us during the testing.
    You will be given 10 minutes time only. If you are willing please let us know. This is only a preliminary test requiring no deposit from your side or award from my side. If your children pass this, then we will work out a date and time for a detailed test procedure under more rigorous conditions for which you will have to deposit the amount of Rs.50,000 to be eligible for the 5 lakh grant. Should your children be not able to pass this test,the matter will be closed and no further claims will be entertained.
    Narendra Nayak

  • Dear Mahesh

    I have met many students who attended midbrain activation training program. Also spoke to their parents and trainers. I have visited such training centers in Kerala and Bangalore. So far I couldn’t meet any one who can read when eyes are properly covered.
    Most of the midbrain activation instituets coduct program for children up to 16. I do agree that few very greedy institutes are conducting programs for adults for just Rs 45000 only. But they don’t say about anything reading with blind fold . All their claims are subjective claims which are difficult to verify. Eg increased peace. Happiness opening of chakras etc. Blind fold is purposefully not included in the training because the truth will come out very quick.
    Mahesh hope you know what is mid brain and what is brain entrainment and what is activation. If not ask its promoters then use you common sense and find truth. Most of these centers so called chief mentors are so dump they know nothing other than some words. If you ask what those words mean then they will come up with their own answers which is normally nothing but big blunder.
    Mahesh if you are confident children can read with their heightened concentration then why don’t take up 5 lakh challenge.
    Any body can comment but to prove that this is possible is not easy. So come on Mahesh take up the challenge and show the world that midbrain activation is real.
    Vinoj promised us many things but he chickend out in the end. And when the journalist phoned him he said he cant somebody who doesn’t believe in god. I feel sorry for that god who is afraid of rationalists.

  • dear Mr. Subin,
    Why Mr. Nayk win the challenge is that he uses the technique of disturbing the concentration of the children. The Children is not showing a magic show. A peaceful mind & atmost concentration is required for the blind fold reading. It can’t be be performed before public or on a disturbing ambience.My son has completed the course very successfully from an institute. You call them ‘frauds’. May I know the meaning of the word “fraud”. I know them for years. They are not circus people wandering all around. They have been in the training field for more than 20 years.We believe them & we believe in the honesty of my child too. I think you people are under estimating the new age children. Mr. Nayk, the world has been changed. the children of these days are 100 times better than those in your childhood age.Sometimes, we the parents may be fooled but not them. So first of all please try to change your attitude. I don’t know the science behind it. If there is no scientific proof, try to explore it. The order is – first something has to happen, then we find the science behind it. while hearing the argument of you people, it seems that firstly scientific explanation comes before the thing is happened!!!! I’m eager to hear from u the scientific explanation of the abilities of Jesus Christ, Muhammed Nabi etc………

    mahesh

    • “May I know the meaning of the word “fraud”.”

      fraud /frɔːd/: wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.

      Without a shred of proof, people are selling genius making courses. I don’t know what else to call them except “frauds.”

      “Sometimes, we the parents may be fooled but not them.”

      Children are much more gullible. There are scientific studies that prove it; unlike your claims. To trust children to understand comprehend neuroscience and optical physics and magic tricks, is pretty sad.

      “If there is no scientific proof, try to explore it.”

      That is not the way. When there is no proof when tested under restricted conditions, you don’t try to explore nothing. We don’t try and explore “hobulas” because they explain the occurrence of consciousness, because there is no proof of it’s existence in the first place.

      “The order is – first something has to happen, then we find the science behind it. while hearing the argument of you people, it seems that firstly scientific explanation comes before the thing is happened!!!!”

      The argument results from a profound ignorance of the scientific method. Yes, theory follows experiment in science. But that does not mean anything can happen. From critical thinking curtailed by evidence for over four hundred years, human knowledge has grown. We know what things that can happen and what cannot at the level of human phenomena. We know the scientific explanation before the phenomena for things were happening for a long time and we it will be happening again.

      And if you need to challenge that knowledge of generations with a mountain of evidence backing it up, you need something more than “I just know”, or “I have seen that.” Not a single demonstration done in front of skeptics have bared fruit. Had it been a real phenomenon, anyone could demonstrate it… without excuses.

      Demonstrate the feat… or please don’t come up with ad hoc excuses and argue for a non-phenomenon.

    • Dear Mahesh
      For the past one and half years I have visited some centers in Bangalore and Kerala. I have tested many kids in a perfectly relaxed way without even telling the kids they are being tested. I personally know some parents so while visiting their house I tested them without using any additional props. This may not be possible in a public situation. But everyone I tested are cheating only.

      I really love to see dermo optical perception ( it is the technical name for eyeless vision or skin vision) in action. If you or your child can perform it I will come and visit and witness. (depending on your location)

      Every where I got the same excuse from parents and trainers they are not practicing these days or our good kids are not here now. The world of trickery is so advanced that it is almost impossible for a common man to find the truth behind a phenomenon. Please watch some videos by Dynamo the impossible or Derren Brown. But they don’t claim any paranormal ability.

      I asked some of the trainers whom I met in the exploration to use different type of blind folding in their training. (environment was relaxed and I was not present Only trainer and kids) When the eyes are blinded properly kids were asking trainer how could we say as no light is coming and it is completely dark.
      If you have spent money to activate your kid then you may not accept it as false. That is your choice.
      If you are from kerala you can get copy of may 2015 issue of Our Kids Malayalm parenting magazine from bookstall and read my article about Midbrain activation.

      But if you really want to know whether you have been fooled in the name of genius making I can help you.

      what do you mean circus people wandering all around, they have genuine talents. That shows how thoughtlessly you speak
      And I saw a video, simply they inserted a opaque paper where that child was peeping!! as simple. Next, switch off light and ask to read. Darkness increases concentration and reduces distractions. And reading blind is never a way of increasing focus. It is a miracle. Miracles are miracles because of our ignorance. If you have a scientific curiosity, life itself and everything in life is a miracle.

    When we challenge them then the children get disturbed. But when you put them on show to attract new customers it is OK!
    Don’t bring dead people here who cannot be tested and your Midbrain activation shops had not opened then. Do not try to justify peeking and call it as something else.
    We can have the challenge under very peaceful conditions. It is the Midbrain activation people who create a ruckus.not we. You people are scared of your secrets getting exposed and create disturbances. Don’t put your children on show and don’t make claims that they can see through blindfolds. Nobody will bother about what you do. If you have public tamashas then be prepared for public testing. By the way some one had the idea of having thousands of children to blindfold reading for an entry into Guinness and Limca book of records. That’s not public and disturbing? Anyway that man has now promised to give up Midbrain activation itself after getting totally exposed. You come forward and we will do that to you too. Just try.

      tamashas, making fun of public, that is decent….jokers.
      no cheating the public, fraud is the right word.There are free techniques to improve memory, concentration, focus. You may need a teacher, he may take a high fee. But they never make a false claim. These people are mixing miracle to attract escape goats. At least you are an atheist and ready to expose any fraud done even in the name of religion. That is the greatest thing any religious person having scientific temper should welcome. Religion was a way of learning the truth about life and facing the fear of unknown by collectivism. Only thing is it was exploited by kings and thieves. They have done great damage to the purpose of religion, which was noble indeed.

    By the way you may think that your son is the greatest genius ever born but we look at children as children. If you believe that your son can read through blindfolds then bring him forward to be tested you could get 5lakhs and go to US to win a million dollars. Perhaps your Midbrain activation ‘academy’ could get the Nobel prize. So come forward Mr. Mahesh don’t just talk do and show.

  • munawar pasha

    Mr. Mahesh do come forward and prove us we are wrong. Then you can talk about mid brain is science. Just sitting there and saying such thingd to justify yourself will not help you in any way. simply pointless.

    If superman really existed he would really show his powers. Not that he will sit at home and say I am superman.

    Think about it. We have years of knowledge and practice debunking new people and the knowledge in magic we have much more than these mid brain people.

  • It is so funny that few people going behind narendar nayak, he is questioning 100 s of children attitude along with mid brain. How can n number of child lie ?

    Also if iam not wrong in the same YouTube video the final part – child was absolutely ready to read with scientifically proven bandage:-) but Mr.Narendar dint provide book in his hand, why ?

    I will say u all y, it is necessary bcoz with mid brain that particular children is enabled with touch sense

    Feeling really sorry for the children on those dias. Narendar torched like anything. Please narendar u can question mid brain but not dignity of these childrens

    • Please remember that those children were thrust forward by their own parents who were anxious to prove their powers. The boy was not trying to read. He was crying. I have been saying again and again that I do not want to humiliate the children, but the parents were insistent.
      Even the patch that we have been using is not totally fraud proof. So,now we have a better method of testing. After blind folding and whatever to be done we shall put a hood over it and then test the reading by touching talent.

  • Dear Mahesh
    One more thing There is some thing called blind fold cubing. so far no midbrain activated kid could do it. one parent brought their child to the context some time ago and kid couldn’t even the turn the cube. Where in mental maths championship most of the winners are practising Abacus. If you have common sense to understand the truth from the above sentence you and your child can be saved from further damage. Else …..

  • I am stupefied at the stupidity of the Indian government, by giving that stratification they are motivating the younger generation, it’s a joke…! By the way.! Did anyone read what that award sertificte says? It goes along these lines…. “award winning for the extraordinary achievement of the girl…! What achievement??? The office or the officer who issued the award is a total superstitious idiot or he was bribed.
    Also if someone please inlighten me..! Do the x-ray beam could distinguish color? Coz as far as I know the solids where the x-ray beam does not pass comes out as white and the tissue is shown as dark or gray color, please let me know.

    One piece of advice for the television company, please verify anything before you bring it up live, you have the greatest responsibility of educating, motivating and inspiring this nation especially the younger generation, or at least you should have that pride of professionalism.

    As to testing the girl….

    It could have been easier to put her in light proof chamber and ask her to identify whatever that you wanted, I bet she wouldn’t have found her own nose in the darkness with her eyes opened…. So much for scientific advancements in our country.

  • Maharshi Kashyap

    Are Midbrain Activation and brainxindia the same fraudsters?

  • Looks like it is a huge racket going under various names even as some thing called as nada yoga! But, the fundas are the same children can see blind folded!
