The strength of Osmania student activism lies in their strong networks between students and alumni. This chapter explores the linkages between 1969 and 2009 generation of activists. It compares the agitational and mobilization strategies of both the agitational phases, and discusses the strategies and nature of mobilization. The changing composition of the university and a legacy of activism are the key factors. It may be noted that the 2009 phase is distinct from the earlier phase of 1969–72 in that it is rooted in this kind of ‘network culture’, which was instrumental in the making of Osmania as the epicentre of the movement. The chapter ends with a conceptual debate on identity movements and emphasize the importance of regional culture in guiding the Telangana movement.
