Gul Bahao puts up Chandi Ghar at Thatta

Pictures of the “KHUSHHALI BOMB,” Pakistan Exploded on the 14th of August 2018 in a village of district Thatta called Goth Faqir Mohammed Rajero.

Using the CHANDI TECHNOLOGY, a Karachi based invention, (consisting of PRE-FAB blocks and panels), the villagers were amazed to see that most of the necessities of life viz. Water Reservoir, Mobile Toilet, a Spacious Room, Bed, Sofa etc.took only a few minutes or hours to assemble.

Here, it may be remembered that District Thatta is known to be the Gateway of Islam in the subcontinent. Will it also be the nursery of Pakistan’s KHUSH HALI Bomb ?

Book Launching at Karachi Press Club






















Recently, Gul Bahao, in collaboration with the Dept. of Developmental Studies NED University held a one day event “Saving the World with Chandi Technology at Karachi Press Club.” – an exhibition of the organizations research products made from waste material.The exhibition was jointly sponsored by well known philanthropist Sardar Yasin Malik,Hamdard Foundation,and well known t.v artist Sarwat Gillani.A detailed discussion with the CEO of Gul Bahao, Nargis Latif, gave deep insights into its program which is bent upon “Turning Garbage into Gold”.

These days the organization is increasingly talking about a “new technology” i.e prefabricated, modular blocks which will be as “sensational as the mobile phone …We started with the goal of cleaning up Karachi through experimenting and recycling and ended up with commercially viable products, very useful for people”, claims Nargis Latif.

Cynicism aside, credit must be given to the organization for putting up a solid room, a 10×40 feet swimming pool and a temporary wall/screen in just a few hours in the backyard of the KPC.
The place wore a festive look with young girls and boys moving around trying to explain to visitors what the exhibition was all about. Patriotic songs were being played on the sound system. The best part of the exhibition was the bright sunshine which made everything glitter.
What gave the event a sanctified look were three cut outs of trees along with their branches bearing translations of the Holy Quran in English, Urdu and Sindhi. These were placed at the entrance of the club.

Here it may be mentioned that Karachi, one of the biggest metropolises of the world is also known for the mountains of garbage lying all around. The head of Gul Bahao maintains that by recycling all kinds of plastic waste, her organization has in effect solved a world wide problem of environment pollution.

According to Nargis, shopping bags wrappers and thermopole are the biggest culprits in waste management. These are either burnt leading to high atmospheric temperatures/pollution, allowed to clog the drainage system or pollute water courses. Gul Bahao has spent millions of rupees and spent 24 years conducting experiments to produce useful goods from waste material separated at source. Once these innovations enter the market and are reproduced en masse, environmental pollution will be controlled and the worlds natural environment restored, or so claims the organizational head.

According to Nargis, the Chandi Technology will charge up the business environment, due to its usefulness. Explaining the technology, Nargis said it comprises of modular blocks and panels made from metallic film and thermopole waste. Pointing to the items on display, Nargis said entire rooms, warehouses, water reservoirs can be installed in a matter of just a few hours and removed just as quickly. This aspect she said is especially useful in rented premises or where ever mobile pre-fabricated structures are required. These structures are also inter convertible
For example a classroom can be converted into a ware house or shop or a water reservoir or even a bed and vice versa. What is more, the roof of a structure can be converted into furniture, partitions,walls etc.

Pointing to what looked like a partition wall, Gul Bahao’s spokesman Mohammad Hannan, said, “This is the latest addition to our stock of innovations. This is my own personal invention-what we refer to as thermopole panel. Now we are looking into making light weight structures”, he said
Talking about the advantages of this modern day technology, Nargis mentioned its durability and longevity due to its plastic nature and insulation. Cool in summer,warm in winter (this quality of the Chandi Ghar especially appealed to the visitors), strong against the elements, huge block size hence plenty of space for inbuilt cupboards, extend able in all four directions due to sheer strength of the columns, custom made etc etc.

According to Arsalaan, the event manager “More than 150 houses have been installed all over Pakistan during the last 15 years or so. One structure was put up 9 years ago, another 5 years ago, still another 3 years ago which have passed the test of time. Our work is being acclaimed on websites all over the world”.

When asked “If this technology is so good, why has it not become common”, pat came the answer “People are hide bound. They refuse to accept new ideas. When the tried and tested CNG was first introduced in Pakistan, no one was bothered for years. People used to say it would destroy the engines (of the vehicles). I dont need to tell you how successful it is now.”
To the question what are the future prospects and programs of the organization, the CEO of Gul Bahao replied, “The ball is in the court of our businessmen and entrepreneurs. Our work was to experiment and innovate. We have done our bit”.

کراچی کا تحفہ دنیا کے لیے !

کرا چی کا شمار اس کرہ ارض کے بڑے شہروں میں ہوتا ہے۔ اس لیے ٰیہ ہو ہی نھیں سکتا کہ یھا پر ہو نے والی کوئی بھی تخلیق بین الاقوامی شھرت حاصل ٰنہ کر پائے۔ یہی وجہ ہےکہ ’چاندی ٹیکنالوجی‘ کی بازگشت ملکوں ملکوں ( امریکہ، جنوبی کوریا، ہندستان، برطانیہ سمیت اقوام متحدہ کے مختلف اداروں) میں سنائی دے رہی ہے۔

دلچسپ بات تو یہ ہےکہ اس لا زوال ایجاد کے تخلیق کار یعنی گل بہاؤ ٹرسٹ (جوکہ ایک ماحولیاتی این جی او) ہےکے وہم گمان میں بھی نہ تھا ان کی ’کچرا دو سونالو’ مہم بڑھتے بڑھتے ایک ایجادکی موجب بن جائےگی جو تحکیق و تخلیق کی دنیا میں تحلکہ مچا دے گی۔ کراچی والے بخوبی جانتے ہیں کہ چند سال پہلے مختلف قسم کا ضائع شدا خام مال جسے عام طور پر لوگ کچرا سمجھ کر پھیکتے تھے ‘ گل بہاو‘ کی جانب سے خالص سونے اور پیسے کے اوز لیا جاتا تھا۔

اس پوری محم میں ہزاروں افراد نے حصہ لیا جن میں بڑی تعداد نوجوانوں کی تھی جو فیکٹریوں، دوکانوں، تعلیمی اداروں وغیرا سے یے خام مال جمہ کرکے بزریعہ ٹرک اور سوزوکی گل بہاؤ کے تحکیکاتی مرکز پہنچاتے تھے۔ اس خام مال پر دنوں نھیں بلکہ دودہایوں تک یعنی ۱۹۹۵؁ سے لے کر اج تک تجربات ہو رہے ہیں۔

ان تجربات کا مقصد ضرورت کی چیزوں کا حصول ہے جن میں کمرا، بیت الخلا، بسترا، پانے جمع کرنے کا حوض، میز، کرسی، صوفہ وغیرا شامل ہیں۔ ان چیزوں میں صرف استعمال کی سہولت ہی نھیں بلکہ پائداری، خوبصورتی اور ارزان قیمت جیسی خوبیاں بھی شامل ہیں۔ ۱۹۹۵؁ سے لے کر اج تک نوجوانوں نے بڑی تعداد میں حصہ لیا، یہ ہنرمند نوجوان خوا وہ تعلیم یافتہ ہوں یا ان پڑھ اس ادارے کے لیے ایک فوجی دستے سے کم نھیں ہیں۔

یوں تو تحقیق اور تجربے کا شعبہ دنیا کا محنگا ترین شعبہ ہے کیوں کہ اس میں جب تک تیر اپنے نشانے پر نھیں لگتا ایسا محسوس ہوتا ہے کہ یہ وقت اور پیسے کے ضیعا کے سوا کچھ نھیں۔ یہی وجہ ہے کے اب تک لاکھوں نہیں بلکہ کڑوڑوں روپے خرچ ہو چکے ہیں۔

سوال یہ ہے کہ اتنا سارا پیسا کہاں سے ایا ؟

اللہ کی معارفت اور تاید کے بغیر اتنا بڑا کام ٓانجام دیا ہی نھیں جا سکتا۔ بظاہر اس کام میں کراچی کے لوگوں کا بے تحا شا پیسہ شامل ہے۔ ان میں بیوپاری بھی ہیں تو اسکول، کالج اور یونیور سٹیوں کے اساتزہ بھی مختلف پیشے سے تعلق رکھنے والے افراد جن میں انجینئر، ڈاکٹر بھی شامل ہیں۔ اس کارے خیر میں خواتین بھی بھر پور حٖصہ لیتی رہی ہیں۔

یہ تمام افراد بطور زکوۃ پیسے دیتے رہے ہیں۔ اس کار خیر میں سردار یاسیں ملک، سید اللہ والا، زاہد ادمجی اور عنبریں بشیر نے گل بہاو کا بڑھ چڑھ کر ساتھ دیا ہے۔ اس مہم کو کمشنر کراچی شعیب صدیقی کی سرپرستی بھی حاصل ہوئ ہے۔ گل بہاؤ کے ریسرچ سینٹر میں اب تک بہت ساری عقل کو حیران کر دینے والی ایجادات تخلیق ہو چکی ہیں لیکں ان میں سب سے نمایاں ‘چاندی ٹیکنا لوجی‘ ہے جو کہ دو قسم کے بلاک اور پینل کو ملا کر بنائ جاتی ہے۔

چاندی ٹیکنا لوجی سے مندرجہ زیل اشیاء بااسانی بنائ جاسکتی ہیں۔ مثلا دومنزلہ مکان اور بعد میں اسی مکان کو باآسانی توڑ کر میز، صوفہ، کرسی، بستر اور پانی کا حوض بھی بنایا جاسکتا ہے۔ کہنے والے کہتے ہیں کہ جس طرح موبائل فون نے دنیا بدل دی ہے عین اسی طرح اللہ نے چاہا تو کراچی کے اس تحفہ سے دنیا ایک نئ کروٹ لےگی۔

Chandi Technology set to change the world

Chandi Ghar Letter head

It could be called a mini exhibition in a mega event. The showcasing of the Chandi Technology at the science exhibition held at the Dawood Public School. The venue was just the right one to display a new invention!. There were life size murals describing the lives and works of well known inventors. The mobile message from Gul Bahao, the parent organization of Chandi Technology ran “Chandi Technology – Karachi’s Gift to the world!, all set to change the world”. Truly the Chandi technology has caught the imagination of people living in different parts of the world. New York, Holland, Delhi, South Korea, Italy, France, parts of the Middle East etc, thanks to CNN, Voice of America, Al Jazeera etc. Pakistans social media is also chatting about this innovation.

As one entered the school premises, one had to go through a make believe tunnel. Immediately after in the brilliant sunshine, amidst picturesque surroundings stood the Chandi Ghar with a water reservoir right in front. The Chandi Ghar as the name suggests was doing full justice to its name. Its sheer beauty was attracting thousands of people on a daily basis. The school records showed that in the last 3 days more than 50,000 (fifty thousand) youngsters attended the exhibition. This excluded the parents and teachers who attended it.

Many of the visitors who came to the Chandi Ghar came with the preconceived notion that the Chandi Ghar being an offshoot of the Gul Bahao waste managment program must be made up of garbage. People young and old kept congratulating the CEO of Gul Bahao trying ways of recycling the city’s garbage. On the other hand, the staff of Gul Bahao was at great pains to explain to the people that in fact a new technology, first time in the world has come up during the last 12 years or so. They kept insisting that the raw material used in the Chandi Technolgy is so clean that it can be used in places of worship. That it is metalized film which though they are factory leftovers is sterile material which can be called virgin material.

Gul Bahao’s spokesman Mohammad Hannan explained to the groups of visitors that kept coming in that the longevity of the Chandi Ghar can be gauged from the fact some of the structures put up in various parts of Pakistan are there since the last several years. One such Chandi Ghar at Ibrahim Haideri has been there since the last 10 years, according to him. What is more, these structures have proved themselves against heavy storms in several places.

Pointing to the photographic mounts displayed on the tables (even these were made up of the Chandi Technology) Mohammad Hannan claimed that 150 structures using this technology have been put up all over Pakistan. These include a marriage hall, lecture hall, single rooms, ware house, water reservoir, rest house etc.

Here it may be added that only a short while ago, during the 3 weeks leading upto the Eidul Azha , a Chandi Hall was put up for exhibition at the Cattle Mandi on Superhighway. Throughout that time the Chandi Hall exuded a gold like effect during the night, while its silver effect shimmered in the day time, captivating the imagination of thousands of people thronging the streets of the Mandi.
