Refreshing place to break for lunch

February 13, 2009 at 11:54 am 2 comments


Yesterday was an extremely exhilarating day. I met a lot of young people in Lahore who have created some really innovative technology products sitting right here in Pakistan. Talking with them and learning about some of the exciting stuff they are doing, reiterated in my mind that Pakistan is indeed a place where innovation in ICT is taking place. The bright and enthusiastic young people, who have joined the ranks of older entrepreneurs, are creating a buzz and a critical mass in an industry that, no matter how much people may underestimate, refuses to go away and will one day be responsible for the enormous economic growth of this country.

In between meetings at different offices throughout the city, Imran Zia and I took a break and had a delicious lunch and a very invigorating conversation with Mannan Amin CEO of Tintash. The barbecued king prawns with garlic was mouth-watering to say the least and the Espresso much-needed. And the fresh and relaxing atmosphere of the Cafe Aylanto made it a truly perfect break in the middle of a very hectic day. Thanks Imran and Mannan for selecting such a divine venue.


I took this picture after most people had left so that I wouldn’t be charged under the Electronic Crimes Ordinance for putting up photos of strangers without their permission 😉
