Valentine's day & all that stuff...

So another Valentine's Day is here. Articles are being published to commemorate the day. Love songs are being played continuously on the music channels. The moral police have started issuing their warnings. Even the administration in my college has not scheduled any exams on the day. Not that I have had any reason to celebrate it yet or for that matter anyone to share it with. But have been getting a few mails giving advise for the V-Day. Here goes one of them.
Follow strictly the below mentioned steps and success is guaranteed:
  • Choose the girl you want to propose on the D-day
  • Pick a rose
  • Spot the girl
  • Stand in front of her
  • Give her the rose
  • Hug her tightlllyyyyy
  • If she doesn’t resist. Battle won, the girl is yours!!!
  • If she resists and stare at you angrily, immediately leave her and start clapping and shouting

J.K.Rowling & the Deathly Hallows

Let me make something clear at the very beginning. I am a big Harry Potter fan. And like many others I am also eagerly awaiting the release of the last book in the series. While searching about the new book, came across anews item which said that J.K.Rowling finished the series in a posh Scottish hotel. To commemorate this she scribbled on a marble bust in her hotel room the following line.
"JK Rowling finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this room (652) on 11th Jan 2007"
For someone who started off writing in a cafe as she could not afford heating in her home to becoming one of the richest women in the whole world, she's come a long way. And now she can easily get away with what can only be described as vandalism of hotel property. I guess this is one of the perks of being a highly successful author. But then why should i mind. After all she has given Harry Potter to the world.

Its Magic...again

"Every great magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called "The Pledge"; The magician shows you something ordinary, but of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn"; The magician makes his ordinary some thing do something extraordinary. Now if you're looking for the secret... you won't find it, that's why there's a third act called, "The Prestige"; this is the part with the twists and turns, where lives hang in the balance, and you see something shocking you've never seen before."
- Cutter, The Prestige (2006)
