The Harry Potter series is narrated by Jim Dale and Stephen Fry, both British actors who are well known. Jim Dale narrated the American versions of the audiobook editions, while Stephen Fry did the British versions. While I was writing this article, I have listened to the audio of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone. Here is what I noticed from the two different audiobooks of the first Harry Potter book.

Pawan stared at the report in shocked silence. Never had he expected this! He was like any other 20-year-old man who was studying in a reputed college, had earned a name for himself in social media by doing Tik Tok videos, and dreamt of a career as an influencer.

Pawan’s parents had been in their late thirties when Pawan was born, and…


I’m certain many of you’d have come across the terms, ‘Volunteering’ and ‘Humanitarian trip”. Whether you’ve only heard of the terms, or haven’t heard the terms, or have any questions regarding this, this article will address it all.

Humanitarian trips are a way to promote human welfare and improve outcomes for people in-need people. Everyone has something to offer, so humanitarian trips are for all ages and backgrounds.

I’ll divide “humanitarian trips” into two parts. One is ‘within your country’ and the other is ‘abroad’.

He sighed and grudgingly walked away from the main road into one of the side streets. His brown shirt was so drenched in his sweat that the shirt matched the shade of his skin. Add to that discomfort, the mask he was wearing. He cursed the Corona virus which was directly responsible for his current situation. “Why should the owner of a theater go around doing such…


The sea was bright blue and the naval officer sat in his cabin. India was safe as long as there were soldiers like him, for he was brave, smart, and strong.

He had a strong passion and felt a strange closeness to the sea since he was a boy. It was a love-hate relationship. He was inspired to join the navy at 18 and at 26, he was satisfied with his work at the Navy.
