Dangerous Ride

I followed this car over a mile and continuously honked and flashed my lights at him but the irresponsible parent continued to drive while the kids hung dangerously out of the car’s window, this was an accident waiting to happen thankfully this day was in favor with them but another day may not be that lucky.

I hope people understand how important it is to make their kids follow safety rules while traveling in a car , which means the kids have to be seated on the passenger seat of the car with the seat-belt on and keep their head and arms inside the vehicle at all time during the travel.

Telenor “Karo Mumkin” Bloggers Meet-up

Telenor Pakistan, a few days back called upon a number of bloggers, at there regional office in Karachi to introduce, and discuss their new campaign “Karo Mumkin“. First of all I was glad to realize that the company seriously believes in the potential of the immerging new media (social media) and respect’s the bloggers and the young generation who are busy day and night generating content over the internet for the sake of it and not for any financial gains, there are a lot of other companies who don’t realize the true potential of the social media, and how strong it has become over the days and completely ignore this aspect of marketing .

Coming back to Telenor’s new campaign “Karo Mumkin”, the idea is to give the nation some hope and ignite a fire in them to think of social change and actually making an effort for it by sending in their ideas to the company which will then take these ideas to a TV show where the selected few will be carried forward and a finalist will be chosen who will earn the company’s support to bring the idea into action.
