After experimenting with lots of cine quiz games and all that fun, my lunchmates and I started to tell the stories of movies that one of us watched and the others did not. So I got to narrate the story of Bama Vijayam, Nee Paathi Naan Paathi, Kan simitum neram etc and got to hear the stories of a few new movies like Bahubali and all that. But we just ran out of interesting stuff to narrate and as I don’t want to hear of Tamil serials and all that stuff, Harry Potter came to the rescue. So I glance at a few chapters each morning in my iPad’s iBooks and we are good to go for a short story-telling session. I don’t give the gist, I tell the entire story along with cats that read maps and round-faced boys with remembralls. But re-reading always means re-analysing and here is the first thing I noticed amiss
Professor McGonagall spends the entire day and a good part of the night outside Privet Drive observing the Dursleys. But when Dumbledore states that Petunia Dursley is going to be entrusted as Harry’s guardian, she seems shocked and taken aback. She is also unsure about whether it is true that Lily and James are really dead. If she is not certain about Lily’s demise and was completely in the dark about Petunia probably going to be the child’s guardian, then why was she spying the Dursleys in the first place?
I will be wondering aloud in this blog about similar stuff for a few months now. So if you are a Potterhead, please join me.
