Where Brilliant Minds Contest!, yes this is the slogan of National Solution Convention 2012 (NASCON) an event that FAST Student Societies hold every year in Islamabad.
This year’s theme is quite encouraging which is based on the usage of technology products and services in Pakistan. No doubt latest form of technology has made our lives easier but it is also a fact that we mostly use foreign developed products for assisting our lives.
