Destiny is that which we are drawn towards and Fate is that which we run into- Wyatt Earp (http://koti.mbnet.fi/amoira/links.htm). The sentence above explains the finite line of difference between fate and destiny. God has made everyone to be destined for a particular setting and one cannot go against destiny, whereas fate is the driving force, that eternal strength, and daring courage that one possesses to reach to ones destiny. Harry potter- as created by the Author is undoubtedly a young, charming personality who is destined to be hero. Heroes are merely social characters, and Harry potter is a born hero. It takes something out of life to be a Hero, and for some heroism is a natural characteristic amongst which Harry Potter is one of them. .
Harry Potter is a young boy who was born in a family of wizards. He does not know about the extraordinary things that he can do by being a wizard until he realizes that he is not ordinary. He realizes his potential and the extraordinary things that he could do only in the later part of his life when he goes to Hogwarts- the school of Witchcraft. Until now Harry was just a normal young school going boy who even does not know who his parents were and how they passed away. He was fed up of his life with his uncle and aunt, and wanted to get out of it. Destiny had something in store for Harry, as he met Hagrid who forced Harry to attend Hogwarts. After than Harry's life changed. He was destined to be hero and his fate pushed him to achieve his ultimate destiny. .
God has chosen all to be different. Hence by birth we have our own faith and destiny. It is obvious that an individual doesn't know about his/her destiny and that makes the motto and struggle of life exciting and full of thrill. Everyone is destined to be something but everyone is not destined heroes. Harry had the all the raw materials and ingredients for being a charming hero. He knew exactly what he wanted to do and his bravery, intelligence makes him a hero in the end.
