The 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book is here and what better way to begin the celebration than talking about its creator.
The 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book is here and what better way to begin the celebration than talking about its wonderful creator.
JK Rowling has been ruling hearts since 20 years today. Harry Potter was the revolution that we all wanted needed. Teaching us to be compassionate, kind, brave… and shaping billions of childhoods since day one. We have come a long way and there is no trace of the mania fading out, and nor will it, ever.
The first ever author’s name that I knew was her name, even though I did not discover the real deal until later. I remember writing her name in the column for “my favourite author” in my GK book in class 2. Her name was the only one I knew. After so many years, now that I know so much and have read so much, I still wouldn’t change that name. She is the real life example of a person who hit rock bottom and made it their foundation. Her journey is an inspiration to anyone who is struggling with life.
Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story, as the name suggests is based on Rowling journey. If you are an enthusiastic Potterhead then this is a must watch and a good way to begin the celebrations. Then we can all unite and worship THE Queen herself. #WandsoutforJK

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 might have had a box office collection of 260 crores INR and entertained Indian audiences, but it's full of problematic stereotypes.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starts with a scene in which the protagonist, Ruhaan (played by Kartik Aaryan) finds an abandoned pink suitcase in a moving cable car and thinks there was a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase was theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bomb mai bag nahi hai, bomb ka bag hai,” (There isn’t a bomb in the bag, the bag belongs to a bomb).
Who even writes such dialogues in 2022?
Anupama, an idealist at heart, believes that passing on the mic to amplify suppressed voices is the best way to show solidarity with the marginalised.
Anupama writes with a clear vision of what she wants to say, and makes sure she explores all possible facets of the topic, be it parenting or work or on books.
An intelligent, extroverted writer with a ton of empathy, she is also one who thinks aloud in her writing. Anupama says that she is largely a self driven person, and her passion to write keeps her motivated.
Among her many achievements Anupama is also a multiple award winning blogger, author, serial entrepreneur, a digital content creator, creative writing mentor, choreographer and mother to a rambunctious 7-year-old who is her life’s inspiration and keeps her on her toes.
