  1. No one talks about the blueprint and the pillars behind the erected tower because the picturesque of monuments is such Sir..!

  2. While the immediate reaction to the question is that they should not be forgotten, but the harsh reality is that it happens. The foundation of any tower or metaphorically signifying an initiative or a success story ends up being appreciated for the faces in the front and more often that not, the foundation layers or those who were in lesser glamorous roles, black guys as the above example put (with no racist element of course!) are not so remembered. However, the role of these people is such that while a good job done may not bring fanfare, a bad job done leads to disasters – imagine the tower’s foundation giving way! And if the architect recognises it well, he will ensure just as much focus on the foundation layers as to the designers.
