With ethnographic data, this chapter demonstrates the everyday life of a movement activist. It highlights how different spaces of the university contribute in changing students’ way of thinking and discusses how a student is inducted, trained, and made part of the movement bandwagon. The university has been evolving over the past five decades of struggle of inside and outside the campus through its students’ activism. This chapter focuses on the inside mechanism of this activism and demonstrates what motives a student to choose the path of activism and how their networks are rooted around Telangana cultural ethos.
