Share Your World 8-24-2020 is hosted by Melanie and Roger has posed the questions for the Harry Potter segment. This week we visit “HP And The Prisoner Of Azkaban”.
One of my favorite gifts that Harry Potter received came from the Weasley Twins; and was “Mrs. Mooney’s Marauder’s Map”. This magical document showed every classroom, hallway and secret corner in all of Hogwarts. It also showed you the location- by name- of every person in Hogwarts. If you had such a magical map of your town, what would you use it for? If you would not use it, is there another person to whom you would gift it?
Living in the capital city of India, it would be fun to see all the important (classified) come visit the President’s House and other Govt buildings. 😛
When was the last time you made a snowball? Were in a snowball fight?
No snowfall in my city, so no chance of making a snowman or indulging in a snow fight. The only time I played in the snow was during my trip to Manali.
Many cultures set great value in each child of the family having godparents. Did you have godparents? Are you a godparent yourself?
Nope. Godparents aren’t part of my culture. And with so many paternal and maternal relatives in most families, the role of godparents are often fulfilled by them.
You have found a secret tunnel under your house. Where does it go?
Hopefully, like the cupboard that lead the four siblings to Narnia, this tunnel would lead to fantasy land far away.
Is intelligence or wisdom more useful?
Intelligence without wisdom (and morality to some extent) can dangerous. History is filled with intelligent men trying to shape the world to their own vision- tyrannical kings & leaders (dictators), psychopaths etc. Intelligence is a tool, balanced by the hand of wisdom. So, I feel that wisdom is necessary to realise the true (and correct) potential of intelligence.
How important is play in living a healthy and fulfilling life?
Balance of work and play (R&R) is essential for a healthy life. After all, as the saying goes ‘all play and no work, makes Jack a dull boy’.
And as far as children are considered, playing outdoors not only keeps them fit in lieu of exercises but also enables them to develop essential traits like teamwork, socialising, sharing that helps in character building.
Is happiness just chemicals flowing through your brain or something more?
Scientifically, happiness maybe chemicals flowing through our brains, but for me its the reason for enduring the difficult phases that life throws my way. The warm feeling that engulfs my soul and makes me want to smile.
