Seeing what is really needed and helping in a way that caters to that
need seems to me the objective of Unlearning we are all talking
about here. Thanks Prasad! you have helped me see this objective. I
personally feel that the question "What for" would more often
than not arise in humans before doing any thing. It is through
getting answer to this question that we, Human beings, rationalise
our behavour. If the objective of unlerning is clear the process of
unlearning would be much easier.
