Fathers play a huge role in our lives. To me, the concept of family goes beyond the people who we are related to by blood. In The Lion King, Mufasa and Scar are perfectly juxtaposed against each other. Scar is a power hungry tyrant willing to kill his own kin to advance his political agenda whereas Mufasa is a brave and exemplary leader who will stake his own life to protect the ones he loves.
The genesis of fairy tales can be traced back to tradition of oral stories told by wandering storytellers. Such stories, which were passed on from mouth to mouth for long years without being written down ever, fascinated the children for centuries and kept their imagination alive. These stories remain in their memory along with their deep underlying moral streak, even when kids grow up. Such is the power of folklore and fairytales.
