TEDx Lahore 2010 was ORGANIC


TEDx Lahore 2010 was ORGANIC, had a GREEN twist to it, nothing less then inspirational and we need events like this to be held more frequently and telecasted on TV ....

Talking to the attendees was great, the musical performances were amazing and the food was nice.... kudos to the Tedx Lahore 2010 team/presenters for their simple, confident, loud & Proud manner that made the event an absolute success.....and that's why the few sound and visual errors every now and then were the beauty and organic nature of the event.... it was like picking a tomato from a plant in ones back yard .... nothing like a polished shiny hybrid beast from the aisles of a supermarket.....

I don't think anything needs to be said about the speakers but strangely i feel confident to make the bold attempt of concluding every presentation into one single word..... COMMUNE..... it felt as if each speaker was urging us for community build up to think original and to communicate ..... while Arif Hasan Sab was trying to paint the picture of a village water well providing community space ..... Dr. Haque wanted Pakistanis to think local.....Dr. Rehman & Saima Zaidi did a great job in presenting the much real past and the wider horizon of commune. People like Mudassir Zia and Asher are all about community anyway.....and both Dr. Usmani and Dr. Khan reassured us about the good quality of Made in Pakistan..... thus Collective Genius

Greed and temptation took over and i couldn't resist to pick couple of left back tree saplings and put em in my goody bag..... thoroughly enjoyed the drums and was not the last to leave.........

Thank you TEDx Lahore 2010 team.....
