That the sun is a star and Game of Thrones is a phenomenal show are universal truths; even souls who choose to stay away from the Game of Thrones' psychosis will avow. Every year, the showrunners come up with tour de force seasons to keep us, manic fans, assuaged and sane.

The more ingenious of us, however, go an extra mile to satiate the everlasting desire for anything and everything GoT. And since nothing can outdo an Indian’s proclivity for extra spectacle, our in-house artist has reimagined some of our much-loved players as Indians.

Tyrion Lannister looks rustic and crafty, like a game-changing character from Ramesh Sippy’s cult-classic Sholay.

And Cersei Lannister looks — well — characteristically herself: cold, detached and evil, with the disposition of a village belle.

It is fitting since the show’s popularity has only grown every season, having amassed global viewers from unlikely corners. Gear up then, for some desi tadka, for Westeros is huge and full of odds.
