Visiting Robotics Labs, Private Limited in Karachi, Pakistan

Karachi is a city of contradictions. And it is a big place. At any given time in the day you may have people being ruthlessly killed in one corner and others working in a modern office environment in another part of the city; you may have a whole locality weltered in chaos and shut out to the rest of the city, and have other neighborhoods where life is going on as normal as it can. It was a regular Karachi day when I visited Afaque Ahmed’s Robotics Labs—a regular Karachi day sees at least twelve murders. To watch young boys write computer codes and make their robots move in prescribed ways, and concurrently think about a man getting strapped with a suicide bomb jacket, a few miles away, and target killings going on in other parts of the city, is an eerie feeling. It is people like Afaque Ahmed who are holding their city together which if left to the shenanigans of bomb blasts and sectarian violence will quickly descend into complete mayhem.

Afaque Riaz Ahmed is an electrical engineering graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. He is a serial entrepreneur who has founded a number of business ventures including Breezecom (http://www.breezecom.biz/) and the Robotics Labs Pvt. Ltd.( http://www.facebook.com/Robotics.labs?fref=ts)
