Owais Mughal

I saw following photo in Raja Islam‘s collection and remained stuck at it. He took this photo in Khewra on October 6, 2008. Looking at it we can safely say that Salt Mines of Khewra are not the only tourist attraction there. But what is this thing? One can run their imagination wild. I would say it is a mixture of indigenous mechanical engineering and art. The front is devoid of any bumper, head lights or number plates. For number plates, we can argue the department of motor vehicle must be debating on how to classify this vehicle. What other details do you observe here?

    Thanks malang. Did not know that.

    Also, Bilal, you don’t have to be the FIRST one. Inventors are, but nearly no entrepreneur ever is. The important think is whether you have it in you to take the available technologies and make more of them than others are making.

    This guy is a much bigger entrepreneur than these self-styled IT people because he is actually making something work to meet a demand in the market. So, lets please not pooh pooh the real entrepreneurs in society.

    Well This vechicle is called Takah- Thakka (because of its huge noise Takah-Takah), it used to be very popular in mid 90’s specially in district Chakwal for the transportation. But suddenly it dissappeared from the scene and now i have scene its picture. We used it for the transportation of bricks
