We Stand on the shoulders of great thinkiers and revolutionaries who have boldly step out of normative and started asking questions (introspectively, retrospectively) to the society & status quo. It is the fundamental nature of Scientific Thinking. It is through them we learn : to stand together against oppressive forces, the concept of struggle, thereby the nature of dialectics involved. Their experiences, inferences, experiments, results are our history that exist for our learning - teaching us constantly what not to repeat and how to adapt strategies to suit the situation. It teaches us how, where and when to be flexible and rigid.

It is these revolutionaries who paved the way for us to walk and helped us “walk the talk”. They also have provided us powerful analytical and critical frameworks to “Observe” the world around us, to “See” the relationship networks between each one of us, and with the environment. Again we simply were standing upon the shoulders of such contributors and their contributions. It is their labour. We have to learn & remember what needs to be and apply them when needs to be. We have to unlearn what needs to be when it needs to be.
