The Power of Imagination

Did you know?
I caught a part of JK Rowling’s interview with the BBC last Sunday. And, what a coincidence; just when I’ve been catching up with the importance of imagination and the ability of man to do whatever he conceives in his mind, believes and accepts et al...

Apparently, the Harry Potter idea occurred to Rowling, in a flash, while traveling but she worked on it for no less than 5 years to bring it to ‘life’. She said something to this effect in her interview – “I imagined that a boy was moving from obscurity into success/stardom for 5 years”!

I’d say that it was this very imagination that got her to where she is today. That’s the power of the human mind!
