The wait was, finally over. As i was nearing the final page of the book, I dearly wished that the book would never end. And I'm sure that most others, of my ilk, across the world, would have felt the sameway too! After I finished the book, I was looking at it's cover, for a very long time. The knock on my door, the fan above my head, the bed beneath me, the phone that rang- they all seemed to tear me apart and I felt as though I was plunging back into a deep, cold and a never-ending tunnel of reality!
The wait, was indeed over! It was quite sometime later that day, that I realised something- Harry Pooter books, had been my only passion in life. I grew up listening to stories from my granny and dad. I grew up watching "Alif Laila" and "The Jungle Book" in Doordharshan. All that,had come to an abrupt end- due to reasons I do not remember. The life looked listless and I was going on in life without taking one glimpse of the life that I had left behind, when, I quite accidentally, happened to read, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Once I finished it, I went for the next, and then the next. And that's how it was till the end- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! I liked the wait. I liked the way it made me feel when I looked at it's cover. And every time, it was just the same- a journey, an expedition into a whole new world- A magical world of witches and wizards, love and war, unicorns and centaurs, the good and the bad!
Who would've thought that the world would just fall in love with someone so evil, yet with a style- Severus Snape, else, shall we say it with all respect, The Half-Bood Prince? Who would've thought that the world would, one day cry for a soul, that was, after all free- Dobby! Who would've thought that a mere book was going to be so much a part of their lives, that they would go wishing that the book would never end? Will you still call it a "Childrens' Literature"?
But it's now over. There is not going to be any more Harry Potter. Or is it? May be, there's indeed some Harry Potter or Hermione Granger or Ronald Weasley out there- reading this very article, secretly smiling and thanking us all- Muggles!
