Memories are something that every human being has the tendency to cling to. I might not have seen much of the world, but I know that once you lose something it’s value increases tenfold. I do remember a few things that cheer me up, but there are others that make me pine for reaching out for those memories and reliving each of those moments.
The first time I watched Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone(or was it sorcerers stone?) years before I started worshiping the Phenomenon. I was barely seven but I remember we watched the movie only halfway. The part which stands clear in my memory is when Hagrid drops baby Harry on the Dursley’s doorstep. Sometime later I also remember seeing my friends play the video game while I talked to them about how much I disliked Harry Potter(Yes, that was me.)
I remember one of the first days in fifth grade when we had an English test where I had done horribly and had never done so badly in my previous years. I was downcast and thought everyone would have done better than me. But I was wrong. In the bus, my friend too, looked crestfallen. We both had scored the same marks. We cried a lot and the best part was that we did it together. What are friends for?
I remember the days my father used to teach me cycling without the training wheels. He used to push my cycle till I was confident and then let go.
Back in first grade, I remember my mom painstakingly copying down my notes through the telephone whenever I was absent. She would call my friend who was in a higher grade for writing down my Arabic translations.
I still remember the first time I met Laboni back when I was in KG2 and she was in first grade. I also remember how and why we met.
I remember the endless times spent in Laboni’s house playing ‘ghost ghost’ or ‘funtimes’.I also remember making Barbie dolls catwalk on the ramp.When I think about Barbie movies, I think about Barbie as the Princess and the pauper, how I was Erika and Laboni was Annalise.
I remember the first movie I watched ONLY with my friends (How to Train Your Dragon) Which also happened to be my first 3D movie. That was wicked.
The first time I played Holi in Mumbai- It was brilliant and about 7 years ago….
I cannot forget all my defeats in Talent Contest.(About five times. Atleast I havent given up.) The only time when our school gave out glass trophies, when I was in 3rd grade(I won 3rd place for doing a puppet show based on Little Red Riding Hood.).
The first ‘Wimpy Kid’ book I read, finishing it within an hour, feeling extremely proud of myself for this feat and finally realizing that everyone else took the same time.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget the first time I read a Harry Potter book, one of the most magical moments for me.
Obviously, there are a lot of things which I will have to remember, the list is too long (and I am a little lazy right now. 😀 )
I know it is a bit late to write this… but I had to. This post is dedicated to my dad, who I’m sure is the best in the world.
As the day gets over, I realize that, not one day has passed when my father has not helped me. He is the best listener in the world and the only person who can cheer me up when I cry. He is the reason for what I am and what I want to become. He teaches me life’s most complex theories in the most simplest of ways. I know he wouldn’t want me thanking him, but I have to because if there is one father who needs thanking, its mine. 😀
Acha, I want to thank you for being the person you are. Fathers day is just another day to show you my affection and love. I want you to know that if you ever need someone, I’ll always be there like you are always there for me. Thank you for doing my holiday homework and hearing my tiny problems when you had to deal with your own hundred ton weighing problems. Thank you for telling me that there’s always a next time when something doesn’t work out. Thank you for letting me know my worth in the world. Thank you for pampering me so much. And last but never ever the least, thank you for teaching me the beauty of the world and the universe and encouraging me to live my life as me.
Happy Fathers day to all the Dads out there!

Food, Dance, Art, Movies, Fun, Harry Potter, pink, fun, crazy……these words are a simpler definition of who I am!
First things first!
This blog is dedicated to my dearest friend, mind u, she is a wizard at Hogwarts!…(No, she is not Hermione!)…who introduced me to Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and partially to Hunger Games…and most importantly to Blogs!
I cannot wait…
In this new poster for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters exclusively revealed by MTV, Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) brandishes his sword, Riptide. The film will hit theaters on August 16th, 2013, and also stars Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth, and Leven Rambin as Clarisse. The film will follow the events of the second novel in the Percy Jackson series by the same name, which chronicles the adventures of thirteen-year-old demigod Percy Jackson as he and his friends rescue his satyr friend Grover from the Cyclops Polyphemus and save the camp from a Titan’s attack by bringing the Golden Fleece to cure Thalia’s poisoned pine tree.
Burdge makes me want to cry!
After a week that seemed so long, I thought years had passed, the weekend comes only as a relief. The thought that you can sleep for however long you want and that you will not be woken by the words “You are going to miss the bus today!” is beautiful. I live for the weekend. As soon as I wake up on a Sunday, I start counting the days to Thursday. I think ‘Weekend Sickness’ is a universal problem, which does not have a cure.
The perfect weekend for me is lots of music, words(Including ‘wizards’ or’wand’ or even ‘demigods’ is great), fun and sleep. The fact that I haven’t seen my perfect weekend for ages is thoroughly depressing.
Hopefully, this will be one of the best weekends I have had in a long, long, time. (Fingers Crossed)
For those who dont know what Rennervate means, it is a Harry Potter spell which defines my blog.
The Wikipedia(Wikia) Definition:
Rennervate is used to bring unconscious individuals back to consciousness, and as such, can be used for more that victims of the Stunning Spell.
There are limitations on this spell’s effectiveness. When Minerva McGonagall was struck by no less than four Stunners, the concentrated damage was intense enough for her to be hospitalised in St. Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, as a simple counter-spell was not enough. It will also not work against certain kinds of Dark magic, for instance, the effects of the Drink of Despair. As with all magic, Rennervate is useless for resurrecting the deceased.
