Different ethnicities, different occupations, different lives and different goals, Pakistan – a country filled with raw talent waiting to be polished, waiting to be displayed to the world. Unfortunately, these talented people do not get their chance to shine as they are hardly ever given the right platform.
However, an initiative taken by Atlas Battery, Sparkistan vows to show the emerging talent and the unsung heroes present in our country. The initiative brings talented Pakistanis from different areas in Pakistan, with each one of them showcasing their talent in their respective fields.
Atlas battery showcased the story of 15 heroes who are not given the fame they deserved. They took a step ahead to give prominence to our sparkling heroes present in Pakistan. Each individual comes from a different background, belongs to a different walk of life and has a different aim. The one thing common in all these people is that they are Pakistanis, striving to make the name of this country better.
