Food for the intellect & the soul at Stevie’s Wok
No matter how tired or stressed you are, there are some people you just have to meet if you are visiting their city – sustenance for the intellect, food for the soul.
Of course this doesn’t mean one should skip lunch so when Zafar Khan invited me to Stevie’s Wok, a Chinese restaurant that is the infamous haunt of LUMS professors, I naturally asked Imran Zia and Dr. Umar Saif to join us. Umar was flying to the US the same evening but he didn’t hesitate for a moment.
We were late because of the games we were playing going back and forth between Defence, The Mall and Johar Town but nonetheless we were glad we eventually made it. We were starving by then of course and extremely embarrassed that we had kept Zafar waiting. It is not like us to be late.
The discussions focused on Startups, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and VCs – some exciting ideas were discussed that will be made public in the next few weeks. There is so much talent in Pakistan, so many innovative ideas that never see the light of day. This state of affairs can’t be allowed to continue. It would be criminal if we didn’t enact a change or at least tried to. JAF and FQ were badly missed – it would no doubt have been a more animated discussion had they been there. Having said that, we are giving them no option but to fall in with our plans. Sorry can’t share the details until we have dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s.
