Once Upon a Time

I remembered my grandmother whom I use to call “AMAA”passed away in April, 2008. She was 85 at that time. Soon after her death I found a great absence in my heart. She was not only one of my friends but a great storage of my knowledge.

"You're a wizard Harry."
With these famous words Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of the keys at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, introduced Harry Potter and millions of people to the magical world created by J.K Rowling. She has weaved a fantasy world where I lost myself when I first started reading "Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone" and even after all these years, after 7 books and 8 movies, I still tend to be completely lost whenever I read Harry Potter.

I have imagined myself playing Quidditch, being an Animagus, visiting Diagon Alley, travelling in the Hogwarts Express, eating Treacle tart and most importantly getting sorted. Pottermore has created a digital wizarding world. There are many personality and character quizzes that you can take like getting sorted, discovering your Patronus and knowing which character you are and so on. I myself am a Hufflepuff (Hello to all the Badgers!) which means I am Hardworking and Loyal (wonder how Zacharias Smith got sorted there, maybe he is a descendant of Helga Hufflepuff, the tragedy). My Patronus is a unicorn. 
"Witches and wizards who have a Unicorn Patronus are outgoing, energetic, smart, and unique. That's the good news. The bad news is that they can also be self-centered, attention-starved, restless, and excessively eccentric." - Pottermore

These are all exciting supernatural stuff. But, Rowling did not become such an exceptional writer just on these magic tricks. Harry Potter teaches us the power of friendship and love. Dumbledore's favorite solution, love. How deep parents love, mother's love specially, is for their children. How people who love us, never truly leave us, we can always find them in our heart. We learned the difference between doing what is right and doing what is easy. That it is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. Rowling has also reflected the fickleness of our society. She also reflects racism and inequality inform of blood status, enslavement in the terms of house elves, bullying and child abuse is reflected by the Dursleys' treatment of Harry. Rowling's reflection of society in her books is so subtle that most don't even recognize them and classify her books as books for kids. But, I believe Harry Potter is an excellent read for anyone. It has fun stuff and life stuff.

I love the fantastical world of Harry Potter and J.K Rowling is my favorite female author (or as a potterhead would say- Queen J.K Rowling). With the messages of love, friendship, doing the right thing, never giving up and finding magic in even the most ordinary things, Harry Potter is must read (not movies-even though they are OK-read those books!).
