Potter is Back .. and so am I !!!

Well .. well .. after a long wait of two years Harry Potter , the wizard who has taken the world by his wand is out .. J.K Rowling's magic is back striking gold and also the hearts of millions ! Yes so am I , back to the blogging world ! Dont ask me now oh are you back just cos Potter is ? No .. i am back cos i am now able to come online that and use the net for blogging too .. earlier i was not able to come online long enough to post my blog and i am really sorry for that !
I also thank all thosse wonderful people who have been visiting my blog !
Anyways so the topic of my choice todyay when i am back to blogging is my favourite Potter series .. the last instalment which has hit the stands on the 21st of July 2007!How addictive is her creation .. hats off to her imagination and also the way she has presented it . In literary world may be she just stands second to all the big people like Chaucer or Shakespeare or Bronte or the like . But then what she as a writer has been able to communicate is really awesome !
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows may sound too kiddish for some one who is an adult and may sound too adult for a kid ... excuse me .. it is only in the Muggle world !!!

Me as a member of the wizarding clan see it otherwise! Rowling has been able to cast a spell on the world ..A simple spell .. or can say a spell bomb ! which is a mix of HARRY POTTER , HERMIONE GRANGER , RONALD WEASLEY AND THE LIKE ..
the result is that we have all been cast a stunning spell .. and so we are now STUNNED ! and method is as simple it can be ..ROWLING'S SIMPLE WRITING ...

Rowling's style is just too very imaginative and yet very enchanting no wonder she is a blessing !

On my comeback to the world of blogging i would love to start it with a small short and "direct dil se" review on the last book of the Potter Series .. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS" a series that will remain unforgettable in the history of the mankind !

The review is again not a normal one .. i am not gonna write the same old kind of book review .I wish to share the subtle yet the strong points that Rowling has tried bringing in .. though its not just in this book but also the previous ones !

The book what ever be it .. it may sound too alien for a muggle but what we have to admire and appreciate is the flow of thougts..

There is a sentence in this book made by one character which i am not mentioning.. which conveys that the master of death is the one who will not run away from the fear of it and understands and accepts that there are more tings in the world that are worser than dying!
She has been able to bring in some very simple things like the victory of good over evil .
The importance of trust and love !
The importance of helping others , sharing , and the value of friends!
These may all be simple but then i am sharing this for people who think this is a kids novel and has got just some over imaginative story !

To quote a few lines from the series....

After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Man with Two Faces," Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, 1997, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

It's a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Hungarian Horntail," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000

If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals. ~J.K. Rowling, "Padfoot Returns," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character Sirius Black(the one used in Lage raho MunnaBhai also ! this is one of my most fav ! )

You place too much importance... on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be! ~J.K. Rowling, "The Parting of the Ways," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

There was no point in worrying yet.... what would come, would come... and he would have to meet it when it did. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Beginning," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000

thoughts could leave deeper scarring than almost anything else... ~J.K. Rowling, "The Second War Begins," Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2003

Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open. ~J.K. Rowling, "The Beginning," Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

And so .. this series did and does teach us all in between the verses told . What i have shown is just a few of them....

Anyways happy reading .. enjoy the magic ... smile all your way !

Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.
