nomination for playing revenge-seeking Arya Stark in the fantasy drama says show creators David Benioff and D B Weiss always had the end in sight despite its massive popularity across the globe “Good things must come to an end or they’re not good anymore It doesn’t last forever and we’ve done what we came to do it’s time to wrap this up and it will have the ending it was always supposed to have and that’s very special” she told Variety in an interview “David and Dan started writing this show knowing the end not knowing that it might actually come around and we might be allowed to make that many (seasons) — at the beginning we were just willing to make one (season)” The season 7 of the show will arrive a little later than expected as the makers had to delay the production due to weather restrictions as winter has finally arrived in fictional Westeros “They started this with an end in sight and so it’s exciting to be closing it… I’m just excited to see everyone again – we start a lot

burning question When ageing superstars are off the boilthe seemingly disillusioned captains halo is fading and a popular deputy has his own coterie within the ranksit is too tempting to take blind leaps to simplisticbut fallaciousconclusions There happens to be a predictable pattern to the criticism that Indian cricketers on away tours face at every stage during a whitewash Every coat of defeat is followed by an expected inference 1-0 is the time to condemn unimaginative itinerary and the teams inability to adjust to alien conditions 2-0 transfers the focus to the cracks in the teamfactions andsometimesleadership battles 3-0 is when the time is ripe to have a go at the 30-plus and to also give up on the team While suggesting overall changescritics dont stop at merely asking the seniors to clear their desk but they also moan the long-delayed transitiondragging even the selectors to the firing squad As was the case during Indias 4-0 series loss in England last yearthe fault-finding template during the ongoing free fall in Australia has remained the same Its 3-0 againthe violins are being played in the wingsthe curtains are being drawneven as a few dazed seniors on the stage are refusing to take a bow Goodbyes are never easy but here they are getting embarrassing Factsfigurespublic opinion and expert evaluation suggest that it is over for VVS Laxman Thanking him profusely while walking him to the door graciously was the least that could be done for the man who was at the wheel when Indian cricket took a difficult U-turn about a decade back at Eden Gardens But that doesnt seem to be the case In these times of overriding pessimismboth the illogical rabid fans and the usually sane cricket voices agree that India has delayed the phasing out of the golden generation of cricketers Thats a subtle way of saying that Laxmanand even Rahul Dravidif you dare Sachin Tendulkar toohave been given a long rope Harping on a problem without the burden of suggesting a solution is a perk bestowed only on those sprawled on couch with a television remote in hand and a ready abuse on lips No such luxuries for those who chair selection committee meetings There is enough evidence to suggest that in case teams were picked by referendumsIndian cricket would have missed several of its most cherished highs It was the August of 2008 and a dispirited Indian team stood at the P Saravanamuttu StadiumColombo Their minds were muddled by Ajantha Mendiss mystery balls and their hearts housed fears about the possible repercussions of the 3-0 series loss As Indias five 30-plus starsAnil KumbleSourav GangulyTendulkarDravid and Laxmandragged their feet to the dressing rooma few former Sri Lankan greats at the venue and past Indian cricketers at home couldnt resist taking a

far refer to the prosperity index and how DelhiMumbaiHyderabad or Bangalore rank The merit of this editionhoweveris not in the statisticsbut the substance of the views offered For Indian citiesthe paradigms of a new approach to prosperity presented in the report are of particular interest Firstthe assertion that as a country becomes more urbanisedboth urban and national productivity will increase is supported by the experience of many developing countries Secondtaking urban infrastructure as the bedrock of prosperitythe survey finds thatin many developing countriessanitation and urban transport are the least developed Transport infrastructure in Indias major cities is tilted in favour of private transport The third aspect is linking quality of life to urban prosperity The failure of many cities to address this issueand the absence of measurable indicators to reveal progress or declineare emphasised Finallythe unequal wealth of cities and the increase in income disparity have a strong impact and is an important determining factor in the prosperity of cities The report presents compelling data of rising inequality in Asian citieswhich exceed the OECD average In Indiain the first four decades after Independencethe co-existence of the rich and the poor was broadly accepted and modest efforts made towards amelioration But in recent yearscity management and planning have become highly exclusive Discounting geographical location as a determining factor in a citys economic growthit emphasises that many cities around the world have set themselves on the path of prosperity by innovationsustained vision and good governance Bangalore and Hyderabad are cases in pointthoughunlike Chennai or Kolkatathey do not have the locational advantage of a port It is worth considering the organising principles for promoting and managing cities prosperous in the true senseas set forth in the report Oneindividual interest cannot prevail over collective interest in land policy and planning In the aggressive pursuit of investments and accumulation of private capitalduring the past decadethe recognition and upholding of public interest has almost disappeared from the government agenda in most Indian cities Land is perhaps the most visible example The process of dilution began during the 1990s in Delhiby allowing conversion of lease hold into free hold Initiallyit was for small rehabilitation plots Noweven prime land that has been in the ownership and control of the government is up for private purchase and speculative trading Since bad practices travel more speedilythe example has been picked up elsewhere Public transport is another area that affects the economy Yet the bulk of public investments in Indian cities has gone in favour of flyovers and expressways Demand management or restraining the proliferation of the private auto is not talked about The allocation of existing road space in favour of public transport has been under fire and it has taken the judiciary to remind the executive that where space is limitedpublic transport has to receive priority Most municipal bodies are elaborate shells without substance since their functional domain is heavily circumscribed This is in contrast to the City Statute of Brazil2001 Brazil accepted city governments as distinct political entities and has stipulatedwithout raising the bogey of capacitythat city planning and most other functions relating to a citys upkeep should be the responsibility of city governments The report is another reminder that the crisis in managing Indias
