We all remember that enchanting movie The Neverending Story about a kid who is constantly bullied and then he begins to lose hope. Initially the story was in the form of a novel by the same name. It’s been 37 years since the Neverending Story was first published. I never read the book, but I saw the movie. In the movie, Bastian Balthazar Bux, a lonely boy, and as mentioned above, who is constantly bullied by a group of boys, steals a copy of The Neverending Story from an antique shop and then goes to the attic of his school to read it. The book is about the adventures of a boy named Atreyu who somehow needs to rekindle a sense of hope in a fantastical world called Fantastica. The world is disappearing into the darkness of hopelessness and until people begin to hope again, the world of Fantastica is not going to survive and it is going to be absorbed by the rapidly approaching darkness. The book was originally written by a German author.
The story had a friendly dragon called Falkor. This was way before movies like How to Train Your Dragon became famous and made dragon’s friendly.
Of course the Google doodle commemorating the 37th anniversary of isn’t visible all over the world.
