J K Rowling’s character from the ‘Harry Potter’ series, Hermione Granger, turned 37 on September 19, 2016!

When J K Rowling created the fictional world of wizards within the muggle realm, little did she know what power she would hold upon a whole generation of readers. For all the children around the world, the 90s and early 21st century was an era of magic and thought provoking fiction.

The characters within the series of Harry Potter started their adventures as children, much like the audience of the series, and grew up with each book, again, much like its readers. Among the three main personalities in the book, there was one girl- Hermione Granger. A brunette girl with a thirst for knowledge and a love for book. She was quite often referred to as “the brightest witch of her age”.

Hermione is Harry and Ron’s closest female friend. Many a times, she is the reason for their survival in life-threatening circumstances. Her character is relatable for many girls around the world who love books and prefer to be seen as powerful rather than ‘beautiful damsels in distress’.

This lady is a class apart from every other character within the series. She is loyal to those she values and does not judge others for their flaws, knowing that she is flawed herself.

She is the only one of the main trio who breaks away once in a while to interact with and understand other characters within the novels. She is the one who encourages Ginny Weasley to stop obsessing over Harry and to concentrate on her own self. She is also the only one of the trio to immediately understand weaker side characters and go out of her way to help them, like when Neville Longbottom lost his toad and understanding Cho Chang’s emotional state.

With no specification of Hermione’s skin tone within the books, a large part of the fandom fell in love with the idea of Hermione having different ethnicities, especially that of ‘Black Hermione’. In the Cursed Child, Hermione even crosses the boundaries of white-washed tales and is played by Noma Dumezweni (of course, we will always love Emma Watson for all the justice she did to the character in the movies).

{Now I haven’t watched the play, but I’m certain the actress did a brilliant job as Hermione Granger. Comment below of your experience if you’ve watched or read the play.}

On September 19, Hermione Granger (the character) turned 37 and the world-wide fandom is out to celebrate the event. She shall forever remain one of the most iconic female fictional characters of the 21st century.

Happy Birthday, Hermione!

We all love you! ❤
