Hugs

Friend gets the job of his dreams
A bear tight hug

Child wakes up having a nightmare
A reassuring hug

Mom is learning to use the internet
A proud hug

Seeing the lover after a year,
A passionate hug

There are many kinds of hugs,
Some big, some tight,
some small, some light
But every hug comes from the heart
Which holds so many emotions
Some true, some false
Some right, some wrong

The real magic

I got the fourth book in this series first in my hand. Papa’s visits to Chennai always made him visit the Moore Market and get some books for us, invariably before boarding the train due to the close proximity of the market. Why and how he picked this particular book I do not know, but what I do know is made me fall hook, line and sinker into the world of magic. When I started reading, I could not understand some bits of it, too many whys and hows hovered in my mind. I finished the book in 3 days and was impatiently waiting to lay my hands to the first three. I finished each of the book subsequently, more often in a single shot, only sleeping because I had to be awake the next day. Friendship, love, honor, trust, courage, grief, sorrow, death and what not, were woven so intricately and most importantly believably. Philosophy was never so interesting, as was the turmoil of a teenage heart.

To the lady who introduced us to the world of magic

Happy birthday JK Rowling

And

Happy birthday Harry Potter

For a long time, I thought Daniel, who played the role of Harry in the movie adaptations had the same birthdate as the author and the character. I am sure I read it in some magazine long ago. When I checked wiki just to be sure before posting, I saw that his  birth-date is 23rd July actually. Nevertheless, it’s the birthday of two characters, one fictional, one real who have made so many people happy worldwide. Live long and prosper 🙂
