Examining the components of the whole in isolation has dominated the Western thoughts for centuries and from such viewpoints, classification and categorization have manufactured self-serving propagandistic stereotypes. In this way of perceiving, not knowing is considered an inadequacy that must be conquered and therefore, where real knowledge lacks, a convenient substitute is imagined.
Re-Orient focuses on Stereotypical assumptions of the West regarding the East and calls for a re-evaluation of such perceptions
