Thank you Areeba for a lovely description of part of the journey towards the General Theory of Relativity. Too many people, lacking an awareness of mathematics & history, imagine Einstein as a solitary genius magically conjuring up the Theory on his own (with perhaps a photogenic blackboard near to hand) but, as you show, the work of many talented and brilliant minds was required to arrive at the final conclusion. And afterward, other brilliant minds expanded and elaborated on the theory.
