    Harry Potter. Everytime I was in a tough situation, being with Harry, painted in J K Rowling’s words, helped me to gain strength. It always brought me hope whenever I saw how dealt with his fears, with his reality. We need fantasy. Sometimes fantasy defines our reality, throws in a new perspective that we would have missed. In one of Richard Bach’s books, he says it is easier to live with fictional characters than the real ones 🙂 Sometimes, I think he is right!

    Indeed!

    Fairy tales are timeless. It’s a whole lot more than just an imaginary fantasy work. They are profound and full of wisdom but put across in the simplest language keeping in mind its audience – Children. But really, I think it’s meant for adults! 

    When an adult rediscovers children’s books after a gap of 20 years or so, it gives the reader new insights because of the life experiences one accumulates. It helps us reflect on our past and connect with ‘reality’ on a different level.
