Tipu, a revolutionary figure deserves to be remembered for his fertility of mind which analysed the causes for the failure of the Indians to meet the challenges of the times. He found that the cross fertilization of ideas had met a natural death in India. That was the reason why he became a member of the Jacobin Club, planted the tree of "liberty" outside his palace and called himself "Citizen Tipu." The colonials never felt safe as long as he was alive. He had to die in the heat of explosive combustion of hostile forces, and never in apathy, inertia or uninventiveness.
