"Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much..."
For many "kids" born in the nineties, the mere mention of Hogwarts is enough to bring a spark of merriment & pure nostalgia in their eyes... We, the Potterheads at Bigsmall.in, decided to take a trip down the memory lane on the momentous occasion of Harry completing a score and two of blissful magical existence. Happy 22nd birthday Harry!!
Any post about The Boy Who Lived, would be incomplete without a glimpse into the journey of the master story spinner, Joanne Rowling herself. The lady, an indigent single mother to her 3 children conjured up the story of a scrawny little boy on an unremarkable train journey from Manchester to London. From the horse's mouth itself, “I saw Harry! I could see him very clearly – this scrawny little boy. And it was the most physical rush of excitement...It was the same feeling that you get when you meet someone new and feel as if you have found the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with.”
She had seen her days of penury and struggle, yet her indomitable will to create something beyond perfect is something we can all learn from. She truly believed in Harry's character & penned down the name, house, and magical powers of every single student of Hogwarts. Ladies & gentlemen, the rest is history... After 5 long years, she finally finished her first book and after being turned down by 12 of the best names in publishing, Bloomsbury bought the rights to publish Harry Potter for a meager $4000. The first installment of the seven-book series saw the light of the day in June 1997.
