Ved grew up in a magical place. Well, technically, he grew up in Simla, which is quite a lovely place in its own right, but the place we are talking about is called "Once Upon A Time...". Over there, Ved lived with so many stories. From Ram to Majnu to Odysseus, he could be each one of them. Stories of many religions, languages, and kinds, he embraced them all. He barely had time to stop and think if any of it made sense. Because he wasn't the kind of child to question "Is magic real?" while he was preoccupied with "Isn't the real magical?"
