Desist from imparting training in blindfold reading, institute told

Based on a complaint filed by the Federation of Indian Rationalist Associations (FIRA) against Efficient Brainy, Puttur, the deputy commissioner passed an order to the latter to desist from training in blindfold reading, stated a press release by FIRA president Narendra Nayak. The DC's order, numbered A5/EB/2017-18, was issued on March 24 in this regard.

It was claimed by Efficient Brainy that through a super-secret process, children between the age of three and 16 could be turned into geniuses who could read hundreds of pages in a minute, develop astonishing acuity of senses, see things hundreds of miles away and so on. Numerous such centres were opened all over the country, and the owners of these started going around schools with children, who could do many activities with blindfolds on, in tow. These classes would be conducted during holidays and as the process was super secret, no outsiders would be allowed to enter, including the parents. One such centre opened in Puttur and brought out pamphlets claiming that their trained children can do anything with their eyes closed.

Following the same, the FIRA lodged a complaint with the DC. Meanwhile, a team constituted by the DDPI, Mangaluru, visited Efficient Brainy, Puttur, and made a report. The team, in its report, observed that the children do not have any special powers but were just peeking through the gaps between the blindfold and nose.
