Let Chandi Technology help you

Chandi Ghar Letter head

Dear Sir,

Gul Bahao has been relentlessly pursuing its research program for the last 22 years. A very useful product, the Chandi Technology whose raw material is metallic film/virgin material from plastic factories is one of the precious innovations. This has come about as a result of immense hard work and massive financial input from both the formal and informal sectors of society.

It may come as a pleasant surprise to you that reports about Gul Bahaos Chandi Technology has crossed

Pakistan’s boundaries and can be seen on websites throughout the world thanks to CNN, Voice of America, Aljazeera, Google, Yahoo and many more. In Pakistan millions of people have seen its different products in real life while thousands have actually used it. For the last ten years or so we have been putting up Chandi Ghars in different parts of Pakistan. Mansehra, Muzaffargarh, Thatta, Awaran and Mithi (Tharparkar) as well as in dozens of places in Karachi. All these structures number more than 150 which include spacious halls, class rooms, entertainment halls, warehouses, reception halls and much more. These structures have survived the test of time for as much as nine years (this technology is only 10 years old). The following results have been obtained:

  • They are durable, long lasting, strong against the elements i.e storms, rains, insects etc.
  • Cool in summer and warm in winter
  • Being essentially plastic in nature, they are clean

They have the following advantages:

  • Stunning looks. Its silver exterior glitters like silver or gold, depending upon the color of light falling on it
  • Highly affordable, less than half the cost of conventional structures at Rs.500-600/sq.ft
  • Quick to put up. Being prefabricated it takes hardly a day. Easily dismantled as well
  • Potential for in built cupboards
  • Interchangeable. The blocks and panels used in it can be changed into a water reservoir, a bed, table, sofa etc.

We strongly believe the Chandi technology will become an indispensable part of our lives just like the CNG Kits, Mobile phones, Solar panels and other modern innovations. However, for the time being we recommend the Chandi Ghar for the following uses:

  1. Classrooms, Lecture Halls, Examination halls etc. Especially in rented premises
  2. Exhibitions
  3. Warehouses
  4. Marriage halls
  5. Best alternative to tents, shamianas and containers
  6. Mobile camps of any kind
  7. Pent houses (a room on roof tops)
  8. Farm houses
  9. Labour colonies
  10. Low lying areas
  11. Low cost houses for disaster affected areas viz earthquakes, floods etc.
  12. Guard room 

Profits generated from this will go into further research and our welfare program “Shelter for the shelter less”. For details please visit our website as given above.

Yours Sincerely

Pak Plas Endorses Chandi Technology

Tharparkar ReliefSince the last several months, there has been a steady stream of publicity about the Chandi Technology (an innovation of Gul Bahao) in the European media especially Hungary, Britain, Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Greece etc. CNN, Voice of America and Aljazeera (and very recently BBC) have given it substantial coverage. What is more our website is being continuously studied all over the world.

The Chandi Technology is a research product whose development and extension has taken 23 long years on which millions of rupees of the wealthy and educated people of Karachi has been spent. This can be as big a change maker as the mobile telephone.

What is the Chandi Technology?. Briefly, they are modular blocks and panels whose raw material is Metalized film (or BOPP) and Thermopole respectively. The raw material used in the blocks is in fact a by product of plastic manufacturing industries, rendering it the most modern form of construction material hitherto. At the same time the techniques employed may be used for any and every kind of plastic waste, making it very useful for municipal waste management as well. The Chandi blocks however are absolutely clean and may be used in high quality prefabricated construction.

Now in the near future we will have Mobile factories, Mobile residential colonies, Mobile offices, Mobile hospitals Mobile schools – all of them being solid structures. Interchangeable in nature. A two storied Chandi Ghar can easily be converted into a water reservoir, a comfortable bed, sofa (in no time) and vice versa. Similarly the roof panels may easily be converted into light weight tables and chairs. Thanks to the insulated nature of the metalized film (the raw material used in the building blocks), the entire structure becomes cool in summer and warm in winter. Due to the sheer strength of the columns, a single room is easily extendable four times. The cost of manufacture and installation is unbelievably low because of the abundant availability of the raw material. They are also custom made. They can be easily produced and installed, with the minimum investment giving rise to a chain of entrepreneurs, dealers running into thousands. So far more than 150 structures using this technology have been put up all over Pakistan in following places. In Disaster Affected areas such as Mansehra, Muzaffargarh, Thatta, Awaran etc. Several times at Expo Centre and Karachi’s prominent places. Entertainment Hall and Lecture Hall. A Reception Hall which acts as a Rest House for patients attendants. It is being used by scores of people on a daily basis in Civil Hospital Mithi for the last three years.

A Ware House for Frontier Works Organization on the Super Highway housing chemical drums. Given the immense economic potential of the Chandi Technology, it would be but natural to use it for raising the employment level to the extent of Reviving the Economy.

At this point let us remember that the west has not developed because of its natural resources but because of its inventions like the Steam Engine, Antibiotics, Electricity etc. without having basic resources like abundant sunlight. At this stage, it is imperative that the government of Pakistan recognizes the immense importance of this technology which can help to revolutionize the economy as well as raise its image at the international level.

At the same time the Chandi technology offers unlimited opportunities for our plastic manufacturers who can use their waste material to produce Palace Like mobile structures and enter Pakistan’s vibrant construction industry with a BANG!

Zakaat for the Shelterless

Dear Friend,

May the peace of the almighty be upon you!

It was in 2005 during the disastrous earthquake in the northern areas that Gul Bahao started making low cost Chandi Ghars for the shelterless. Ever since, whenever a disaster struck Pakistan, be it in Mansehra, Awaran (Baluchistan) the great deluge of 2010 affecting Thatta, Muzaffargarh, massive fire in Shanti Nagar (Gulshan-Iqbal), drought in Tharparkar, Gul Bahao has rushed to put up its prefabricated Chandi Ghars . These structures are put up in very little time. From a few days the installation time has dropped to a few hours. This despite the fact that the Chandi Ghars are as long lasting as houses made of stone or marble!.

While the number of houses put up may be symbolic only (not more than 150 houses, relief camps have been put up) the continuous work on this innovation has resulted in a boon not just for the disaster affectees of Pakistan but also for mankind as a whole . The Chandi Technology has the potential to change the world just like the mobile phone. Just as the mobile is multi functional so too the Chandi technology. Being modular it serves as a mobile toilet, a soft bed (fit for the king) tables, chairs and even a water reservoir!. A long lasting house strong against the elements and within the reach of the poorest of the poor. All because it took 22 years of hard and persistent work and an input of 9 crores from the wealthy and generous hearted people of Pakistan!.

Gul Bahao is also working on disaster management especially the heat wave in which it is planned to put up relief camps complete with a cooling pond and a mobile clinic. Here, it must be remembered that one of the best features of the Chandi Technology is its insular nature i.e it is cool in summer and warm in winter.

With the blessings of the almighty and your support Gul Bahao is planning on an ambitious program of replacing mud houses with Chandi Ghars. This is the need of the hour. Mud houses are problematic especially when heavy rains cause them to collapse and because they are hot beds of infectious diseases. Plastic material on the other hand is sterile by nature. Metalized film, a form of plastic is the raw material of the Chandi Ghar. This will ensure that people living in Chandi Ghars will be secured from many infectious diseases.

If our rural people start living in cool clean and weather resistant Chandi Ghars, they will not have to flock to major cities like Karachi and Lahore, rendering these megalopolises unsustainable.

We at Gul Bahao are assiduously spreading translations of the Holy Quran in 3 languages (Urdu, Sindhi and English). In order that our people are not deprived of the sacred words of the almighty due to their ignorance of the Arabic language.

Our past efforts and future plans for the upliftment of the Muslim Ummah makes us eminently eligible for your Zakat.
