EDIT: Some of our readers are saying that Bluray has been also released in India, but only in big movie stores in big cities. But again, it should again to be considered as a rumor as I don't have any web-evidance of this news.

The book is overall a bunch of short fairytales, namely-
- "The Tale of the Three Brothers"
- "The Fountain of Fair Fortune"
- "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot"
- "Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump"
- "The Warlock’s Hairy Heart"
All these stories' theme is based in Harry Potter's Wizarding World. All these stories, according to Jo were heard by Ron in his childhood and The Tales of Beedle the Bard was left to Hermione by Hogwarts school headmaster Dumbledore. But... The book will be printed in only 7 copies, 6 for some special people and 1 for auction for charity.
Bad Luck guys, you can't own it, but you can take part in auction if you are in London.

A young fan asked J.K. Rowling whether Dumbledore finds "true love". Rowling said "Dumbledore is gay" and "fell in love with the charming wizard Gellert Grindelwald but when Grindelwald turned out to be more interested in the dark arts than good, Dumbledore was terribly let down and went on to destroy his rival." That love, she said, was Dumbledore's "great tragedy." The audience reportedly fell silent after Rowling's admission, then erupted into applause.
Well this is a bit weird, our who DD point-of-view will change. Anyway, clever Jo. You might have told us years ago. She told :

For those who don't know, Durga Puja is a festival, celebrated all over India, especially in Bengal.
In this long-running festival, people workship goddess Durga in very attractive temple-like 'pandals'. The community which has summoned at Delhi High Court may have wanted to do something 'different' but, unfortunately- Its all about Loving Harry!
WB wants two million (crore) rupees for permission to present this castle like pandal. This much cost for a pandal is pretty high, anyway.

Yes Guys, a big news today! Take a seat before you procede, as Deathly Hallows cover-art is released. The cover art reveals several thing's answers and well-as some unanswered questions.
UPDATE: Bloomsbury also announced today that the UK edition (and possibily Indian Editon also) will be 608 pages long and ₤ 17.99 in price.
This price is something that will surely loose around Rs. 1000 from your parents pocket (and the price will be not less than 900 as HBP was Rs. 895, so price may also rise as up as Rs. 1550 , so parents, put your fingers crossed!).
The US version of the book will have 784 pages, making it longer than GOF.

So, Here's some main cool plot details from all 4 reviews (remember, I've no idea about the movie yet as I haven't seen it. So, these are most possible plot details from the above reviews. )
BIG SPOILER, select to view :-
- Film starts same as book (with Dementors attack)
- Dursleys are given short time in the movie but all 3 or 5 minutes are awesome.
- Tonks is not so cool and is quite different as book.
- The flight through London is awe-inspiring.
- Moody on his specialised broom is superb.
- Grimmauld place is grim and the Black family tapestry is enormous.
- Lupin's on-screen time is too short .
- Michael Gambon is now a bit calm and gives a tinge of Richard Harris. He's improving.
- Luna is damn good.
- Imelda Staunton's Dolores Umbridge is simply one of the most evil creations you will ever wish to see.
- The DA scenes are handled superbly .
- The Harry and Cho's kiss is not just a kiss but a full make-out session. (But not too much showing )
- Scenes with Hagrid and Grawp are a tad long, but good.
- Twins exit from Hogwarts is 10 on 10.
- Big difference from the book is Grawp saving Harry and Hermione from Umbridge and the centaurs but Imelda's face as shes flung into the trees in a picture.
- The BIG fight is a masterpiece .
- The fight scene is the coolest one and most matching to the book.
- Death scene is too emotional.
Overall MuggleIndia gives this flick as 7 and a half out of 10 and a PG-13 (U/A) rating.

This information is from IMDb and Wikipedia. MuggleIndia Blog doesn't assures of its accuracy.
DR Completely. There came a point on the third Potter film when I thought, acting is what I want to do. I thought it would be a bad idea to wait till the Potter films were all finished to do something else. There are certain people who will be more than happy to see you in any other role you like, and there will be some who will never, ever see you as anything other than Harry Potter. Once you've accepted that, it's fine - you just do whatever you like. With this, they can say I'm good or terrible but the one thing they can't say is I haven't challenged myself."
JKR has obtained an injunction which "prohibits eBay from listing illegal copies of her works.The court order is a setback for eBay because it is the first time the company has been obliged to police its sellers’ auctions for copyrighted material."
“J. K. Rowling has previously warned fans on her own website about the sale of fake signed books and other pirated Harry Potter e-books on eBay.”
