So I think, since everyone in this world is raving mad about the ever-awaited, eternally, ubiquitously loved, final installment of the Harry Potter blockbuster saga tommorrow , I should write something about it too. But you know, the question is, what do you write about something that is the pure definition of ‘awesomeness’ to you and is forever etched in your heart ? So I did what someone’s wall picture quote on Facebook told me to do. I ‘stayed calm and read Harry Potter‘. All seven parts, back-to-back.Well, I know something, no matter what changes in life, there are some that define the word everlasting. Harry Potter still has that captivating effect on me. Its as unputdownable as ever. When I first read it, I actually forgot that there was a world besides it. I risked exams, skipped meals, didn’t bath for a day( yes, Pottermania had affected sanity) That one thing, that is so gripping, so fascinating, something, that tells you, no matter what, ‘The magic is in you’. I, like a lot of others, first ‘experienced’ Harry Potter at school, so you know, Harry Potter ain’t just one of my favourite stories, its a dearest friend I grew up with.

As Harry struggled at Potions, I was like,happens to all of us,mate… ( Thank you, Math:| ). The Cho-Chang episode too, is something a lot of teens can relate to. I remember having full-fledged dreams, being a part of Dumbledore’s Army, and fighting against the Dark Lord (what days! :’) ). I was so intrigued by it, that I did a mock-interview of J.K. Rowling as a celebrity guest, for the class 9th radio show, in CBSE’s English Communicative, and well, even my lovely teacher said, you really do love HP, it is a marvellous script. And like other nice things, top grades due to it !!You know Harry Potter has so deeply seeped into my world, Hermoine’s SPEW, the Ministry’s Departments, the subjects they learn at school, all the spells, charms, jinxes, curses, phew, I’ll NEVER stop…sigh… it is a LEGEND.
For you know, I’ve muttered in my mind, ‘Imperio’, when I’ve been passionate and enraged about something(sometimes,I do thank God that I’m a Muggle, albeit a very passionate one about everything I love. ), wanted someone to say ‘Obliviate’ (when there’s so much to forget about something) and well, so much more..,It is a story of love, friendship, loyalty, hope, trust, forgiveness, standing up for what you believe in, no matter what comes.When Ron leaves Harry and Hermione in HP-7, and comes back, you know, that is how friendship is. The true bond overrides all differences, and united they’re stronger. When Dumbledore and Sirius die, you feel sad as if someone real passed away. That’s the spellbinding, thrilling, enchanting potboiler from J.K. Rowling. When Luna Lovegood says, ”Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end.”, it is a hopeful anodyne for so many hearts and touches lives beyond all
boundaries. In words of The Powerpuff Girls, ”sugar, spice, and all things nice ‘
So, you know, it will continue, simply because its Harry Potter…
