The Return v3
Or the second coming a second time?
So I’m here!
A bit of a surprise actually.
I see I have posted 97 different links on facebook.
Which obviously means I want to share stuff with others.
But I know that blogs are the ‘in’ thing.
Pity they were just starting off when I had my first blog,back in 2004. Four years ago to be exact,back in October 2004.
I’m making ANOTHER return to blogging!
And this is because my blog is a pretty good way to share stuff too! AND with a larger audience!
So first off,an interesting idea poached from our rivals/friends India – a train that spreads awareness about AIDS!
I haven’t seen anything like it before. It’s taking mass communication to a different level. You see car advertisements all the time,but a train carrying a message? Very interesting idea that could be used very well in Pakistan, especially to get to target markets that are hard to get to. SEC C,D. Those who travel on trains. Those who spend hours waiting at platforms. Have a train refurbished and set up as a mobile exhibition. Offer incentives to get the people to look at it. Or even get a bogey attached to every train that has an exhibition. Anyone can go at anytime to the train and learn something. You could offer a variety of incentives for that too. Feasibility is the issue. Costs? Availability of bogeys/trains? Interesting,nonetheless.
The next bit of news, which is decidedly positive: A small business from Pakistan makes it to the finals of an international enterprise competition.
Sounds familiar 😛 (why the f is MY name misspelled?!)
The DAWN report says that “The Hashoo Foundation assists local beekeepers to boost their income by selling high-quality honey through a network of five-star hotels in Pakistan.” It’s a wonderful project run by the Hashwanis that should be a model for social entrepreneurship in this country – one that will help the needy AND the rich! After all, you get quality at low cost and, for being an intermediary, the opportunity of profit as well!
Go on and vote for it!
