Fast-Idea -Debate Competition
Children by PharmEvo

KARACHI. Whenever a PharmEvo event is mentioned, the first thought that comes to the mind of the listener is usually that the event would be some kind of an intellectual gathering. This is because, ever since its inception, PharmEvo has organized social gatherings which always have a motive of inculcating healthy mental and social habits. It may be mentioned here that PharmEvo, in the past, has organized several Mushairas, Cultural evenings, CMEs and published several books in the genre of “Urdu Adab”, all of them have shown a strong commitment of this company to their vision “Our dream, a healthier society”.

Recently, PharmEvo has gone one step further by organizing an unprecedented event with the name of Fast-Idea for one of their products. The Fast-Idea series of event is an Extempore Debate Competition for Children from the age of twelve to sixteen. The event was different from any standard debate competition which can be explained by Fast-Idea’s tagline “Small Idea, Big Impact”. The children were given separate issues faced by Pakistani society today and they presented their points in the form of a debate in groups of five. In the end, all the groups presented the “Small Idea” that can change the entire problem on its head. As expected, these young and creative children gave amazing ideas that can, if implemented, be very effective in solving basic issues like poverty, lack of education etc. 

The debates were evaluated by Dr. Salim, President of a renowned Public Speaking Society Toast Masters Club International. In the end, the awards and gifts were presented to participants by Judges. The event was a great success, appreciated by participants and parents alike. Apparently the marketing team at PharmEvo is outdoing itself by coming up with such events every year. Considering their relentless endevour, one hopes that PharmEvo achieves its dream of a healthier society. Fast-Idea was organized at Arena, Karachi on the 9th of September 2012. Around One hundred and fifty people attended the event. (PR)
