If Baba Chiragh can do it, why can’t you?

I recently came across few videos and was extremely glad that how some people here in Pakistan are solving problems. In fact one of them, an elderly man, Muhammad Chiragh didn’t even go for formal schooling and I was amazed how he played around with the concept of “Rahet” (Picture Below) and turned it into a Tube Well. (Video Below).

Similarly, Mr. Syed Toseef Haider Zaidi has made Wind Turbines, Wind Mill etc. locally (video below) to solve power shortage issues. Details are available on this website. Another young guy, 20 years old Muhammad Waqar Qureshi in very limited resources has done some interesting projects which are worth evaluating.

We need to encourage such people. We don’t need anyone else. We can solve our problems on our own if innovators like these are promoted and acknowledged at national level.

    Two thumbs up for the site. Had no idea that there would be a site highlighting the entrepreneurial side of Pakistan. This one is a pleasant surprise.
    Anyway, wanted to point out that there is no ‘search this site’ option here. The search bar you have provided searches google, not this blog. I had difficulty searching for posts. And honestly, people dont have the time to go through archives.
