Bound by an Unbroken Spell for 7 years

It’s that time of the year again! The Pottermania is raging everywhere, and I’ve caught the fever too…I know what the adults are thinking—Harry Potter is nothing special. The modern day kids should return to our ancient Indian lore. Sure, I’ve heard that before, and I have read ‘ancient’ tales of India too, but that shouldn’t prevent me from reading HP, it’s one of my very favorite books. The Harry Potter series have been a part of my life since the time when I was in 6th, when I read the first book and went totally crazy over anything to deal with Harry. Now, something of a saga—an era of Potter maniacs is coming to an end. JK Rowling has entered History books, broken records, and the world is queuing up for the last book. After we grow too old for Fantasy, I’m sure we’ll forget the spell Potter cast on us as children. I know all good things should come to an end, and it is time to bid adieu to the famous series.

It is just sad that I am missing out on much of the fun. I have to study for a test on Monday, so I can’t rush to Sapna Book House at 5:30 A.m. to get the last book on the first day…and I haven’t watched the recent movie either. I’ll catch on after my test…I’m planning on buying the book and watching the movie in August. Right now, I am busy studying and in between, trying to guess the fate of Harry Potter, which will be revealed to everyone who is waiting, all over the world on Saturday.
