Photographer in Uttarakhand’s village just gave his students an amazing Quidditch Photoshoot

First things first, to all the Potterheads, this is not something to make you jealous. Though if you do feel jealous, we understand. We were a tad jealous too.

He recently uploaded a photo series in which you can see the village children playing Quidditch. He told Buzzfeed India,

I show the kids Harry Potter movies on Sundays. They once fantasised about being witches and wizards themselves.

When I told them I could give them flying lessons, they were so excited they literally dragged me to the fields. It took four Sundays of hopping on a one-foot-high wooden bench to stash enough material for the final images.

Carrying out the shoot was tough, but when I created the final pictures and showed them to the children, they yelled in amazement.

The satisfaction and sense of achievement I felt after roping in some magic into their lives can’t be expressed in words.
