Hindi by podcast

Harry Potter is faced with the realisation he is getting older. After his cousin Dudley pulls a prank on Hedwig the owl, the ensuing squawking drills through Harry's hangover; enraged, the wizard turns Dudley into a replica of Michael Jackson's nose. Meanwhile, Ron Weasley, swooning over his classmate Hermione, breaks in to a love song. No, JK Rowling has not lost the plot: this is an imagined Bollywood reworking that features in a podcast to teach people Hindi.
