Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child – Book GiveAway

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is based on the same theme as the previous Harry Potter books, LOVE. Anything more than this is not unnecessary.

Many of us have read the new book by now and can’t be happier even if there are some people who are not happy with its narrative style. The book is not in a novel format but a PLAY. Yes, ladies and gentlemen this work of art is presented in the form of a play. Therefore it misses out on the magical elaborated explanations and long paragraphs of a scene’s description like its predecessors. But none the less Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is as enchanting as the past ones. 

Remember the first rule of being a reader?

“Always be ready to explore new ways of doing things.”

Mysterious thing time

I took a test a few days ago, it was just an online fun test, it told me how long I will live. I almost want to believe it since it is based on a lot of calculations by the scientific community but I do not. I don’t think in today’s world how much time we have left can be said as easily. The chances of me dying by cancer are lesser than me dying from a vehicle accident. Not kidding, there’s just too many vehicles on roads now, if not that then I might die of pollution. haha

No one knows how much we will live.. We like to think time is a commodity to be used sparingly and that we will never die. I love what Dumbledor said to Hermione in the Harry Potter And The Prizoner of Azakaban….

Mysterious thing, time. Powerful, and when meddled with, dangerous.

Dear Professor Snape, We Shall Miss You


I am the character you are not supposed to like. ~ Alan Rickman, Said the man who immortalized Professor Snape in our minds & hearts….

Very often I find myself looking from the holes of my world (That is the reality) into the very fictional world of Harry Potter & What not that my dear Madam Rowling created after having a delusional thought in the middle of a station of a Wizard that lived & then she set down and wrote a seven book series on it that left me thirsty for more adventure in the mere fictional world. I lived with them and today one of the actors who so fondly said, “When I am 80 years old and sitting in my rocking chair,  I’ll be reading Harry Potter. And my family will say to me, ‘After all this time?’ And I will say, ‘Always.” My dear professor Snape who is better known as Alan Rickman or is that otherwise? I don’t have any idea how he would have preferred it for he was a very thoughtful man. I say that as I know him, I don’t actually I just grew up reading everything about him and all the other artists as I grew up.

                  Professor Snape…… The Half Blood Prince

He said that and he died today after fighting a hard battle against cancer at the age of 69, way too soon. But as Dumbledore said, “Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living & above all pity those who live without love.” Professor Snape would have seconded him.

Acting touches nerves you have absolutely no control over. – Alan Rickman

Alan Rickman performed as Snape in hefty 8 movies of Harry Potter series and he is forever carved in the hearts of all of us, youngsters mostly who have read the books and also seen the Harry Potter movies. The reason I am writing this article right now is because when I was told, “hey,  Snape died.” I was like, “What? I know snape died in the movie!” “Yes, but Alan Rickman died!” The reader inside me screamed and got teary, I’ve to confess that I am not the sort of person to cry when an actor dies. This is my first time! I cried when Snape died in the books and the movies even when I knew that Snape is fighting a battle he will lose. I wonder how Alan Rickman was able to act professor Snape so perfectly even when he knew that Professor Snape will be killing Dumbledore & then dying in the act of saving the chose one??

“I can’t believe professor Snape is an awesome man. I just finished Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows and I can not imagine Professor Snape did everything he did since the start of this series for his love for Lilly Potter. I am sold. I am grateful to Miss. Rowling for creating such a strong character that will have effect on me for a life time. I hope someday I will be able to love someone the way Snape loved Lilly.” That is a paraphrased version of something  from my old journal after I finished reading Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows. Today when the man who played Professor Snape to perfection has died and I can not think of anything else. It’s like a part of my world has come to an end and now I have to look for other places. Strange but sure this part of my world will stay in my heart forever.

Professor Snape

Thank you Alan Rickman for giving me the memories of lifetime by doing what you loved with such conviction. Someday I hope & strive to do something even mildly similar to what you have done with your talents & desires for which I can be remembered. This is but a farewell to your soul as you depart to some world that I have no knowledge of. Your memories will live on with us as long as we live and perhaps even longer in our writings.

Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home. 🙂

                                                                    Mischief Managed. 

Today I will go to sleep with Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows in my arms and The Half Blood  in my mind. Maybe I will even dream of the whole book today!

Fictional Things We All Have Desired At Some Point In Our Lives – Part 1

All book nerds face many difficulties in life. For example our love for books goes unnoticed and we are taken for lunatics if we ever act like our favorite book character, no one understands why we cry when our favorite character dies, we loan book to someone and they don’t understand why we are angry when they return it spoiled… Eerr you get the idea! One of the greatest problem is when we wish for fictional things and there’s ton of other people who want the same things and we end up fighting over fictional things! :p

For me, biggest point is no one gets it when I wish Hermione’s enchanted purse or time turner!! Just imagine all the things I can keep in the purse and it will go undetected since it has a protection charm! Win win situation eh? I’m just gonna list a few things that I have read about and from time to time wished I had them. So without further delay, let’s get on with it.


Fictional things we wish to have… Give me everything….

~~~> Hermione’s enchanted purse from Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows by J.K.Rowling– Imagine all the books you will carry. Oh all the places you can go without your purse being seen by the crooks. Imagine all the fun you can have when you board the Boeing plane!
