Awe-Inspiring Tale

Few months back, I saw a wonderful insightful post on Social Bridges. I immediately thought to share it on Islamabad Metroblog as well but thanks to my short-term memory retention, I forgot. Thanks to my link saving habit though ;) I remember now.

Quoting what Osama wrote:

When I was visiting Quaid-e-Azam university a month ago for a seminar, I stopped in my tracks to notice this very interesting custom-modified motorcycle parked in the garage. The students with me started telling me the story of this gentleman who drives this highly modified vehicle that helps him overcome his physical challenges.

I think this is a highly inspiring example of overcoming any personal challenge with innovation, even if it doesn’t relate to physical disability. I also think this vehicles like these can tap into an amazing new niche market.

Atlas Honda – why are you guys missing this opportunity? It just requires one new mechanical harness at the back and you can create these niche bikes and make good money selling them. We wont blame you for earning profits from your product, rather we’ll recognize you for your socially aware product design.

I was genuinely happy to read this. Do you know of any such examples nearby?
