Last week also saw me taking a dive back into the world of reading fictional works, after a very long time. Harry Potter (gifted by Taruna last year to the kids when we met in Chennai), that was piling dust in the cupboard found a certain interest in me. I remember having taken an unspoken vow to keep away from the world of fantasies, magic, etc. Really didn’t strike a chord within me, or so I thought.

What started as random reading sessions to the kids; I found myself drawn into Potter’s world. Don’t know how far I’d go (like other pursuits of mine that lose fuel), but for now it looks like I might take the full plunge – books and the movies.

Quotes of interest:

... to the well-organised mind, death is but the next great adventure.
... the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things which are worst for them.
