Who hasn’t heard of the name ‘Hamdard Pakistan’. The legacy of Hamdard is now 110 years old and the length and breadth of all the milestones achieved so far by this one organization cannot be summed up in a single blog post. The event took place at the breathtaking location of the Mohatta Palace. My first ever visit and that too in a setup arranged at such a massive scale was definitely a worthwhile experience. Properly managed and organized red carpet with ushers that looked after everything and everyone. A custom green bushed wall with Love Pakistan-Build Pakistan written over and the Hakim Saeed Award nestled in between, instantly became my favorite. The route towards the menu venue for the event was also properly decorated with Digital TVs that displayed the upcoming future goals of Hamdard.
Starting off with the Holy Verses of Quran, Dr. Muzna, our lively host for the night walked us through the entire plan and the cheerful part was that everything went smoothly as per schedule. Starting with the enigmatic voice of Talat Hussain who soulfully walked us through the life and struggles of Late Hakim Mohammed Saeed and his tireless effort and lifelong achievements. With Governor Sindh as the Chief Guest and with company members MD and CEO Hamdard Pakistan Mr. Fahad Qureshi, Mrs. Saima Rashid, Chairperson Hamdard Pakistan, Mr. Zubair and Mr. Farukh Imam on stage revealed the official New Branding of Logo and Corporate Identity of Hamdard Pakistan
And the way the entire reveal took place was (in the words of Governor Sindh), nothing less than a Bollywood setup. See for yourself:
Alongisde Hamdard Pakistan launched its latest TVC that presented a visual depiction of Hakim Mohammad Saeed in the numeours heart warming ways he had served the nation with his generosity and wisdom.
With this new Corporate Rebranding, Hamdard Pakistan vows to bring explore new horizons and spring new beginnings. To introduce the award recipients Ishq Pakistan was produced as a devoted song sung by none other than legendary Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammed that concluded all the categories and winners for the night and first ever Hakim Saeed Awards.
It was an honor to watch some of the finest and I would undoubtedly say world’s finest talent to step up on the stage and receive the award for the enormous efforts made that definitely don’t need an award to be recognized.
Having gotten the chance to meet and speak up-close to Legends like Anwar Masood (all credit to this event) there’s not just one thing that I took back from this event but definitely a million other things that dropped inside the box. (cannot contain excitement)
The event was concluded with a soulful hour and more long Qawwali by unmatchable due Fareed Ayaz and Anu Muhammed, which had been my first ever experience of attending and hearing a live qawwali, ever. So, you can imagine the intensity of overwhelmed emotions I went through in a single night!
With hopes and prayers to look forward to much more in terms of innovation and introductions, and I hope we are going to find new beginnings in every other aspect of Hamdard Pakistan
