Wow! It worked. The day had been good till now had this persistent problem not happened yet again. Anyways let me just avoid that this happened. Ok wanted to write about this funny thing that happened today, I was teasing this friend of mine who could not watch the new release of Harry Potter today and she gave me this clichéd argument about having read the book. So just to answer her I gave her this matter of fact lecture on how the cinema has this angle or the point of view of the director which is not there in a book which is open to innumerable interpretations. And a bit later our proof in literary theory gave us this lecture on Saussure’s theory, where he speaks about the Iconic and the Symbolic signs (a part of semiotics) and according to this theory the Iconic sign is restricted where as the Symbolic is free of any restrictions. Isn’t it wonderful to see in theory what you have just said?
Ok more importantly I saw the movie, its amazing to the point where Iconic and symbolic meet, this is when Harry and Lord Voldemort point there wands at each other. Ok I won’t talk about this movie in this shared space where I began by talking something else, it wouldn’t be fair otherwise and more importantly this friend of mine would perhaps not like my dividing attention. isn’t it P?
