The boy who lived was born in the magical world.
And magic was born in our muggle world.
And with every turned page that magic world become more real than our actual world around. Hogwarts was our dream school, Quidditch the favourite sport and Hippogriff the favourite animal. And since that day till today there is hardly anything that changed. We are still ready to give up everything the moment we receive that long awaited letter from Hogwarts and board a train from platform 9 3/4 at the King cross station.
Since the day we met the boy who lived under the stairs, there was absolutely no going back. Nothing could ever interest us more than chocolate frogs, Bertie Bott’s every flavour beans, butterbeer, moving staircase, giant trolls and hidden chambers.
Along with the boy with a scar we have taken the charms, herbology, defense against dark arts, transfiguration, potion making classes. We had our midnight adventure under the invisibility cloak and we all were equally scared of Peeves and Mrs Norris.
Like ‘Roonil Wazlib’ (this was one of the funniest moment in books) in Ron and Hermione we found our friends. We did our homework, played chess, brewed polyjuice potion, became member of S.P.E.W., fought dragons, squids and spiders, practised spells and destroyed the horcruxes.
With the Chosen One we shared the Hatred for Snape and love for Hagrid. Mrs Weasley and Burrow brought smile to our faces whereas a ride back to Dursley’s in Privet Drive was dreaded. Along with him we laughed louder on the jokes of Fred and George and had our fill with Hogwarts feast. Any mention of Quidditch would light up our faces and potion classes will put us off just like him.
Harry Potter, you made our childhood awesome and full of adventures. It was a pleasure knowing you and growing up with you. You taught us the true meaning of courage, loyalty, friendship and bravery. We have read many books and came across many characters which we have loved but none that we lived. Only you had the magic to made us live those moments with you.
A very happy birthday Harry Potter, the boy who lived and will continue to live forever.
