Potterheads won’t need any introduction to the best philosopher, Albus Percival Wulfric  Brian Dumbledore. The man whose sarcastic remarks and amazingly framed words always gave an in- depth lesson about life. Happy or sad, light or darkness, Albus Dumbledore always had a quote ready for all situations. He was a lot more than just the Headmaster of Hogwarts School Of  Magic. He was a counselor, a friend, and above all the pure soul of the Harry Potter series.

Whenever we imagine Dumbledore, we see an old man with an extremely adorable face, the long white beard and those round glass spectacles that added to his wittiness. His personality involved an absolutely soul connecting delight. J.K. Rowling had added life to this character by nourishing it with extreme wisdom and intelligence.

He was the identity of the Magical World, remembered and admired by his fans for his witty jokes and life changing philosophies. Every Potterhead exceptionally adores Albus Dumbledore for the fun loving yet perfect mentor personality that made him different.


“Do not pity the dead Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.”

The quote captured the hearts of people in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows when Dumbledore gave an insight of life and death to Harry.


“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”

A quote that marked the togetherness and unity of every single person present in Hogwarts. After the death of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Dumbledore said these lines to unite everyone and fight for a common goal.


“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone marked these words that summed up life in a single line. Life is all about living in the present, ignoring the worries of future and forgetting the instincts of the past.


“Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.”

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire hold these golden lines that taught us the way to make choices. Dumbledore after the return of Voldemort and the death of Cedric Diggory, explains how the right choices will lead us to victory, no matter how grey the skies go.


“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

There is a moment in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, when Harry realizes the similarities he shares with Voldemort. Dumbledore consoles him by saying how our choices and decisions make us unique and different. Even if Harry has a darker side, his choices in life will make him different from Voldemort.


“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban witnesses darkness and fear that comes with the dementors. Dumbledore made it a point to teach everyone in his own way that they need to be alert and learn to defend themselves. For the day always shines even after the darkest of nights.


“It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince take a heart breaking towards the end. But before these circumstances occur, Harry who isn’t aware of what will happen is taught about death by Dumbledore. He rightly quotes how our fear of death is absolutely meaningless. Irony strikes when the great old man dies an unfortunate death, leaving everyone in tears and memories.

The man framed our childhood and taught us the lessons of life so easily. He was truly a magician of words. His power of thoughts and wisdom made everyone admire him. The loss of such an amazing character in the sixth part of the series felt like someone really close left us.
That’s the intensity of Albus Dumbledore, he is much more than just a fictional character. He is life, reason to life and the key to all the problems. The only philosopher we ever knew was this man who became a part of our souls and will remain to be till our last breath. His existence even after being fictional is ironically eternal in our lives.

Raazi Review: Some thriller creates suspense and what if this espionage is about PATRIOTISM?

Ameesha Saxena




‘A strong woman stands for Herself,

A stronger woman stands for her Family,

A Strongest woman stands for her Country.’

Some captured moments cannot be just judged by awards, they stay unsaid, unpicked and unheard

This Meghna Gulzar movie ‘Raazi’ is an epitome recon of surveillance and intelligence. The thriller blends over the flashback history of Indo-Pakistan war in 1971 of a Kashmiri spy married to a Pakistani Army officer. The mirth and bombarded in the movie shakes up the heads of society. The movie is the adaption of ‘ Harinder Sikka’s ‘ novel “Calling Sehmat”. The bravery and the triumph  of this Kashmiri girl is heart-throbbing.


The Emotional Wit

Raazi paradigms of faith and the enshrining spirits of bravery links its wit with the emotional connect. The war pace tears in the eyes of each woman.


Kashmir’s Valour

Kashmir, our very own Kashmir, which of late has been unfortunately labelled with unrest and unattached with the rest of the country, can produce acts of valour, as depicted from the trailer of Raazi.


The Prodigious Role of Alia

The movie has smashed the amazeballs on YouTube and every news scripts. The  phenomenal woman empowerment graced the double role of the golden woman. The mindful cognizance of a ‘spy’ to protect her country to indulge herself in danger is explicitly shown in the appalling role of a ‘Pakistani wife’ who sacrifices her life to protect many lives.


The sacrifice for nation

The spirit of patriotism develops from the first cry for its motherland. Such sacrifice for nation is a blessing . ‘Serving the nation comes first until you die’. This proud sentiment leads up the head to the happiness of seventh stage.


Some wonders are just astonishing when they stay unsaid. All the spirits and winning doesn’t need the medals, for the highest award and reward is raw and wild patriotism. Yes, it’s just sacrifices which create beauty in heart — In the hearts of the nation — and develops, nurtures nationalism in the hearts of the viewers.


For ‘Raazi’ ‘Raazi’ ‘Raazi’!


‘You Owe’

‘You Respect’

‘You bleed’

‘In the blood flowing ‘Our Country first’!

“You stand in the presence of Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains.”

That’s the introduction to the beautiful Emilia Clarke known as “Khaleesi” in the epic saga we call as Game of thrones. The character she portrayed from the first season was that of a subtle, calm and innocent Princess who is longing to just go back to her home where her ancestors originally lived .

The first ever title she gains is that of Khaleesi when she is  married off to Khal (King) Drogo of the Dothraki clan. She regains herself after the death of his Khal realizing that she is the rightful Targaryen for the Iron Throne and not her brother.

Lets see why we should get inspiration from the Daughter of the Mad King, Daenerys Targaryen.


Daenerys never wanted to marry Khal drogo but still sacrified herself to the barbaric and ruthless dothrakis. She did so on her brother, Viserys Targaryen’s command.

She followed the Dothraki tradition of eating  a raw heart of a stallion before giving birth to a child. She walked into the fire with her Dragon eggs later gave birth to 3 dragons. This added the titles of the “Unburnt and mother of dragons”.

She reached Astapor in Slavers bay and freed all the 800 Unsullied army. She bought all the slaves in the Yunkai city, hereby gaining the title of “Breaker of chains”.


Daenerys has always appreciated suggestions given by her close apprentices like Ser Jorah ,Misandei and Daario. And later, she incorporated The Imp, Tyrion Lannister as the Hand of the Queen. She knew when to take the suggestion and when to act like a queen.


Daenerys led the clan of Dothrakis to travel on sea which they had never experienced. Being an outsider and leading wild Dothrakis, The Unsullied, The second sons and the dragons was a challenge. The confident, strong and independent Khaleesi outgrew the level of expectation every time she decided to do something.

Well! She can’t be praised enough for the character she portrays  so effortlessly and befittingly. The character reminds us that we women are the KHALEESI in our own eyes. Only then the world would recognise our worth.

But then we are not men!
