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.
