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.

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.
