Procom.Net 2009 is being held today – on 2nd May, Saturday at FAST-NU Main campus amidst city violence and law & order insecurities. Two “Thumbs- up” to Ammar Faheem (www.ammar360.com), President Procom.Net, his entire team and the faculty of FAST-NU. Well done!!!
Originally scheduled to be a two-day event (30th April & 1st May), Procom was reduced to an abridged version by the ethnic violence that erupted in the city on the night of Wednesday. Gloom prevailed and the event seemed to be in doldrums. The participants were stuck and was waiting wih their fingers crossed to hear the new date, if any. There came Mr. Ammar with his excellent pressure-handling skills backed by his reliable team; and announced the new date. The timings are 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
More than 400 participants comprising 150+ teams from all over the country thronged the 12 competiions being held. Overall, the crowd has surpassed 800 figure. That includes representtaives from 10 or more sponsors, FAST-NU senior faculty members, industry executives, participants, students and visitors. I could see media people taking snaps as well but the media information is yet to come.
These young bright individuals together have given a very strong message to all the terrorists and negative elements of the society out there….”We have defeated violence; We have defeated terrorism; We have defeated all conspiracies to sabotage our progress and We’ve beaten all the odds….We rise above all problems and we are the Champions, the future, the Winner”
I recall a song here, although its indian, but the intent here is to deliver the message
” Yahan kai hum sikandar……….hari baazi ko jeetnaaa humay ata hai !”
