"It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities"
- J. K. Rowling
J. K. Rowling has understood the mind of the young very well, and in the last decade has transformed from a teacher to one of the most celebrated authors for young people. The Harry Potter books have in fact been read by all ages, and this affirms the quest for fun and more so be young always!
We have to think young to be with the young, and this is a challenge for most adults. The youth has a freshness that must be allowed to pervade, the mentors, guides, peers and those trying to guide the young, must challenge the young to self discover and lead. The magical world of Harry Potter has given new insights to the fun and learning the young need. The adventure, curiosity, skills and the need to be fit are well elucidated in the life of Harry and the characters of the famous Potter novels. The young are working on fresh scripts and innovating always, and the adult mentors need to pay heed to their needs and motivate them. The ability of the young to rebel, the free flow of their action and the need to question; are all positive attributes and we need to work our way to help them evolve.
The need for fun, that is paramount has to be much appreciated and this is what we find in the Harry Potter books too. The word fundamental, too has 'fun' in the first three letters and the 'mental' post that. The adults often are a road block in the quest for fun, and this is a challenge for all of us. Let us learn from the adventures of the young help build a better world.
