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.

BANNER FOR ROZGAR LA MEHDOOD

Chandi Ghar Letter head

Dear Friends,

May the peace of the Almighty be upon you!. This is to seek your attention to the novel discovery of the Chandi Technology which has the key to a prosperous Pakistan. What is more we have slowly but surely started getting both national and international Media Coverage. Newspapers of France, Italy, Holland, South Korea and India have given us very positive coverage while T.V channels CNN, Voice of America, Al Jazeera and several lesser known channels have been covering us for years.

This is apart from Pakistani channels, which have given us abundant coverage. We now intend to run a 3-week long campaign called Rozgar La Mehdood in the Gai (Cow) Mandi located on main superhighway from the 21st of August right upto Eidul Azha. We have been allotted prominent space 15ft x 30ft area in the VIP area block 1, front row facing the super highway. Here, an attractive looking Chandi Hall. i.e a prefabricated structure will be put up complete with the latest innovations of the Chandi technology. In this campaign opportunities will be offered to our youth and entrepreneurs. New and profitable ways of making money with the least investment using the Chandi technology.

A second and vital aspect of the display would be to provide “shelter for the shelter less”. Another part of the campaign meant to provide subsidized housing for the poorest of the poor. One way would be to explain to the poor how they can make cheap plastic houses them selves. Second would be to motivate people to donate for the cause. The occasion provides ample opportunity for extensive publicity of your products as well as for your CSR activity. The Cow Mandi you must be aware is the biggest one of its kind in the world which gets massive publicity on a daily basis. We would like you to sponsor the 3 week event at the following rates: a) Banner inside the hall 3ft x 6ft – Rs.5o,ooo. b) Banner on the exterior wall 3ft x 6ft. Rs.1,00,000. c) Banner on the side facing the superhighway 3ft x 6ft. Rs.1,75,000.

Yours Sincerely,

Nargis Latif (CEO – Gul Bahao)

BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR 14TH AUGUST !

Yesterday, a group of more than 40 university going  students from  a program “Yeh Hai Karachi” sponsored by an NGO, “Karachi Youth Initiative”, came to visit Gul Bahao’s research center in Gulshan-e-Iqbal. Nargis Latif  (CEO of Gul Bahao), addressing the youth, said that with only a few days left for independence day, her organization has a pleasant surprise for the whole of Pakistan. That, she said is the Chandi Technology which, has taken more than 2 decades to evolve with an expenditure running into millions of rupees and the involvement of thousands of people living in Karachi.

The Gul Bahao staff then proceeded to show every aspect of the Chandi Technology, from the 14 feet high hall built 4 years ago to the under construction 10’x12′ Chandi Room, the 5’x6′ water pond, masterbed, tables and chairs all made from clean, plastic waste supplied by factories.

They took pains to explain that all these items are interchangeable, that the panel used in the roof of the Chandi Ghar can be changed into a light weight table, while the heavy weight blocks used in the columns can be used for making a water reservoir in the shortest possible time. Beautiful looking mounted photographs of different aspects and locations of the Chandi Technology were also on display, on the occasion.

Nargis Latif the founder and chairperson requested the participants of the workshop to raise their hands in prayer, reciting the translation of Sura Fateha in Urdu. Nargis begged the almighty to bless this innovation which according to her is truly a “Sign of God”. Nargis appealed to the students to take up the Chandi Technology, to produce it, market it, to make the media more aware about it. “Just as the steam engine, brought about a technological revolution in the west, so too the Chandi Technology when fully applied will God willing, change the face of Pakistan”, she exhorted.

The CEO of the Chandi Technology said the immediate implementation of the Chandi Technology will be in the form of Rozgar La Mehdood i.e unlimited opportunities for entrepreneurs and shelter for the shelter less and Subsidized Housing for the rural poor.  The students who participated in the one day workshop hailed from different universities, with academic backgrounds as varied as Business Administration, Biology, Mass Communications, Biology etc. However all of them came armed with Digital Cameras to take shots of a technology which is struggling to make a place for it self in the global village.
