As we read Hassaan Ghazali's clear-eyed commentary on the short-comings of the Lahore Transport Master Plan, and the process behind it, itis natural enough that we from other parts of the world think of it as a sagathat typifies that city, that country and that part of the world. He tells usthat "role of planning in urban development has always been our Achilles heel", which I am sure is the case,But whoa, if we think about it we have to admit that there are all too few cities in the world in which thesechallenges have been all that well handled.
