Arthur Conan Doyle Believed In Fairies!  

You all must have read those famous fantasy novels, especially Harry Potter. But have you ever really believed in such things? Yes, you guess it right! I am not actually crazy to be asking you if you believe that there is another land beside humans where magicians or fairies reside. As a child, the enticing novels by Enid Blyton may have made you believe that there is something like that, but do you believe in it even now???

Yes, I can see most of you nodding your head in a negative reply and raising an eyebrow asking me, "why this question, eh?" Okay! Not keeping much of a secret, I will tell you all. The reason is that I recently read that the famous mystery writer who created a furore by killing Sherlock Holmes in his novel and reinventing him again, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle actually believed in fairies!

Wow! A startling news, is it not? Now, whoever must have thought that such a writer or thrilling blood curdling mysteries would actually believe in those exotic, alluring fairies? So, time to change your opinion too.....

    You might be interested in the film, Fairy Tale: A True Story, which tells the story and shows Conan Doyle's involvement.

    There's also Photographing Fairies which covers the same events. Interestingly both were made in 1997. A good year for films about fairies I guess.

    He was Scottish and born in the 19th century, so I can see it. I wouldn't rule out fairies absolutely, anyway. We can't hope to ever know everything about our world.
