16 'Game Of Thrones' Facts Every Fan Needs To Know

Lesser Known Game Of Thrones Facts

Season 6 is here, Jon Snow is back and basically, life has some purpose again. Let’s just admit it, there’s no life outside ‘Game Of Thrones’! So, for all you fans out there, here are some facts you probably didn’t know.
1. Okay, let’s start with this. Jack Gleeson, who played super douche Joffrey Baratheon also played an innocent little kid in ‘Batman Begins’. If only we know what he’d grow up to be!

3. Remember Lady? Sansa’s direwolf? Well, Sophie Turner (Sansa) adopted him in real life! Probably the only good decision Sansa’s ever made.

4. Martin has already told the writers of the show, David Benioff and W.B. Weiss how he wants the show to end, just in case he doesn’t survive till the books are complete! So, don’t worry guys! The show’s gonna be on. (So going to hell for this!)

9. Richard Madden (Robb Stark) wasn’t told his character was going to die. He hadn’t read the books. It was when he was searching for his character on Google that he found out the spoiler! Now, this just makes the Red Wedding even sadder.

10. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne Of Tarth) doesn’t know her own birthday. Apparently, nobody in her family noted down the date. That’s such a Brienne thing.

11. Peter Vaughn, the man who played Maestor Aemon is blind in real life as well. Also, he’s 92 years old!

12. He may have just one word for a dialogue on the show but Kirstian Nairn (Hodor) is a totally different personality in real life. He’s a popular DJ and his gigs are called ‘Rave Of Thrones’!

13. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) don’t see eye to eye in real life. Rumour has it that they once dated and things didn’t end up well. In fact, if reports are to be believed, they’re so far off from being cordial, there took place a feud between them on the sets so bad that they had to be separated.

14. Apart from being the most awesome show, ‘Game Of Thrones’ is also the most expensive one ever! On an average $6 million is spent on making one episode of ‘GoT’. The one with the war at the Blackwater Bay cost a whopping $8 million!

15. It’s not necessary that all good things have a successful start. The original pilot of the show received such harsh reviews, the show was on the verge of being shelved! Jennifer Ehle and Tamzin Merchant were originally cast as Catelyn Stark and Daenerys, respectively. When the pilot bombed, it was re-shot with new actors!

16. And here comes the most interesting one of them all. After the premiere of the first episode of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 1, Martin wrote a letter to Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon) saying “Congratulations, everyone hates you!” Joffrey, if you’re reading this, we still do.

Sony’s attempt to get back in lower mid-range segment.

Sony has been struggling the most to tap the smartphone market right and in yet another attempt they have tried to get under 15k segment which is by far the most crowded and difficult segment. It is heavily dominated by Chinese, South Korean Giant Samsung and now a little by Finnish comeback Nokia. So, has Xperia R1 (Rs. 12990) and R1 Plus (Rs. 14990) got what it takes? Let’s check out.

The design is the same signature (Boxy) Sony design which has started to show its age. The devices feel unmistakably Sony from any angle. They have a slim profile of 8 mm and weighs 150 grams as one would expect from Sony and should feel good in hand although as the edges are not curved, could dig deep in the palm with long usage. The screen to body ratio has never been Sony’s forte and this time is no different, the devices have unnecessarily huge bezels on top and bottom which make the devices look so 2015. The screen is a 5.2-inch 720p IPS display with 2.5D Curved Glass on both devices Coming to the S…

Thoughts In Mind

The journey of life is the reward and in this journey you feel feather of happiness.. But later on its a planet of devils and demons, selfishness and liars that makes you come across to the real faces of the person whom you love the most.

. In this journey one can push you in a deep well even if the person be the best or worst for you... 
But at the end you have to climb and stand For Yourself... For family.. For the Best of Friends..!!! 

The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go..  The happiest moment in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you cannot change.. 

Learn to away yourself from people's lives silently and gracefully who doesn't need you, Who doesn't bother about you, and be happy with small circle of people you have in your life . Remember Intelligent people tend to have less friends than the average person. The Smarter you are the more selective you become.

This post is for anyone who feels a little lost …
