What did my Harry ever do to you?

I am a sucker for Harry Potter. The books, movies (only first three), merchandise, video games, websites, fan stories, etc, etc, etc. The Potter craze started when I was in the fourth std, so guess I was 9 years old and even today 14 years later I am still crazy. So this is true love!

Now I have read each HP book around twenty five times, actually more. (seriously). This is the level of my craze. It's a book I read when I am happy, sad, depressed, and angry. My love is so strong, that I hated anyone even touching my books. But alas, love comes with an expiry date. Dad, Mom and my maid (beat that), cannot see my happiness. They despise Harry and cannot see us together. So since the past few years, they have hidden all my HP books all over the house. Under the beds, over the kitchen cabinets, between the cutlery, suitcases above the cupboard and various other dark places! I found most of them, but my victory was short lived.

They hid them again.

Now I have no idea where they are. If only I could do "Accio HP books", but sadly I dont have a wand. I found the 5th book, Order of Phoenix few days back, been reading that but now it's over. And I am badly craving the Half Blood Prince (sounds weird). So here I am, rambling about my Harry who is hidden somewhere. Dad and Mom, what did Harry do to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys are mean!!

My friend in USA respects my love for Harry, he even bought me a Griffindor Scarf which is the original merchandise. How cool is that!! I know many may feel that I can just download the ebooks, but that sucks! Best part about books is when you can hold them, lie on the bed and peacefully read. Why would I strain my eyes for an ebook!

Why doesn't Hogwarts really exist? Why isn't there a Honeydukes selling cockroach clusters, fizzing whizzbees, sugar quills, crystallized pineapple and chocolate frogs. Why no Three Broomsticks, where I can go have butterbeer. Why no floo powder, why no Diagon Alley!!!!!!!Life is unfair!

If only Harry world existed, the world would have been a better place. Wow, how sad am I?? Guess studying so many disorders for my Abnormal Psychology paper due in 4 days has taken it's toll. Have you guys checked out Pottermore. Its a cooollll site!! I got sorted into Hufflepuff (sick) but now what to do. But plus point- Cedric (even though he's dead). You can live the chapters, play games, whip up potions(which I sucked at), an absolutely fab site! And whoever thinks that HP is for kids and not for adults, then go to hell.

Dad and Mom, I will be purchasing all seven books again!!!
Love you Harry. Peace.

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
