KARACHI: Students of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (Szabist) organised a fun-filled carnival to revitalise the concept of sharing. Under the leadership of Musadique Ali, the students collaborated with Shaffaf Welfare Trust to hold the Thandaa Maza festival at Baitul Mukarram grounds. They shared free drinks and a one-time free ride with the people of Karachi. Szabist students could enjoy unlimited free rides. They shared and revived memories "with the most prominent to the least noticed in every stratum of social classes", stated a press release issued by Ali.
"The carnival turned out to be a big hit when it managed to magnetise an audience of more than 1,200 people belonging to all fields of life, returning life to the city of lights," said Ali. "This micro movement of sharing happiness has extended recognitions in all spheres of society, becoming the talk of the town," he added. "In an attempt to connect fun with welfare, these young and vibrant individuals have unarguably given their life to something better than themselves." Thandaa Maza is a media management project by students of Szabist under the leadership of Ali in an attempt to revitalise flagging public relations initiatives.
