Like elsewhere on the web, Game of Thrones is popular even on the question-and-answer portal Quora.
Indian users of the website have been discussing the show on Quora for several years. So, as HBO’s epic fantasy series nears its end after being on air for eight years, here’s a look back at what Indians wanted to know about the show on Quora:
Indians have repeatedly asked: Why is “Game of Thrones” so popular in India?
According to one user, the answer lies in the lack of good content on local TV. The reply from July 2016, which has been viewed around 2,000 times, says:
“…Ladies in GoT are way too inspiring. After being sold to a man by her own brother, Daenerys rises to be a queen. Arya saw her father being beheaded and she doesn’t sit back and mourn. Instead she rose up… and started avenging her family. Sansa was raped by her husband who tormented her everyday and she came back with an army and fed him to his dogs.”
“You don’t get to see such inspiring characters in (Indian) daily soaps!”
