From ‘made in space’ products to underwater restaurants and hotels, new and unique business ideas are always fascinating to investors. This is because innovative business ventures not only deliver the return on invested capital, but also provide the businesspersons with the feeling of being a trailblazer, or trendsetter in the market, compared with traditional run-of-the-mill businesses.
From ‘me too’ business to the ‘out of this world’ trading initiatives, a variety of options are always available for starting up a product or service-based business for small investors and small and medium enterprises (SMEs). However, new business ideas, implemented through reasonable financial investments, lead a newly formed company to a win-win situation.
Many small investors find it risky to try a new ‘out of the box’ business idea, but these underlying risks can be mitigated after evaluating the socioeconomic and cultural compatibility of the idea where it is going to be practically implemented. Essentially, you have to show basic creativity to find out ‘real, but un-served need’ of the consumers, which is not being catered by the existing companies. For example, many popular brands of baby nappies or diapers are available in the market made as per predefined standards. Nevertheless, these readymade nappies do not fit every child accurately, as not being tailor-made or fully customized as per each baby’s requirements. Available with the same design for both boys and girls, readymade diapers are also not gendered specific.
This problem may lead the business opportunists to a new business idea of making customised baby nappies. Adding a design element in the proposed baby product will make it more appealing also, and very high class of buyers could utilize nappy tailoring & designing service as a symbol of status. If you are a keen observer, you can quickly generate a valid business idea. For example, absence of a decent public toilet system is a common problem never addressed by the private companies in our cities. Run by government departments, we can find public toilets at some locations that appear to be ‘not user friendly,’ offering totally unhygienic and sullied environment, and very limited space, including the universal lack of toilet papers, water and the rest of the lavatory accessories. Especially for women, these public toilets are not usable at all, and no consideration is given to children, disabled and old age people during construction of toilets at public places. Well-equipped with essential toiletries, private firms can introduce a paid service of ‘wheeled mobile toilets’ in our cities, offering sanitized and hygienic environment to all age groups.

The Idea: As stated above, there is a severe lack of interconnectivity between the TV set and its remote control. Appeared to be well interconnected with each other, your TV set is useless when it comes to locating the lost remote control. The ideal solution suggests for an interconnected feature through which we can find the missing control by pressing a special button of the TV set.
And, when we press the particular button, the remote control starts beeping, thus helping us to locate it quickly without any time-consuming manual searching. This leads us towards a general concept of ‘Interconnected Electronic Devices’ and we can make other devices well-interconnected with its related devices. In particular, all of such devices that are run by remote control must be well-interconnected with each other.
The idea is to periodically change the national and provincial capitals of the country. In other words, we must shift the designated capital cities (both national and provincial) of our country recurrently to new locations. To summarize the proposed idea in a few words, I have named it as “The Idea of Capital Change”.
How relocation of our capital cities will benefit the nation? “The Idea of Capital Change” can be taken as a two-in-one formula for rapid growth and provincial solidarity. It’s totally a new concept that is supposed to trigger national development, especially in underdeveloped areas by changing both provincial and capital cities on a regular basis. By following this way, new areas will automatically come to the sate of the ideal development and growth. Shifting both national and provincial capitals to new places will be a revolutionary step ever taken by any government as it will solve a number of issues related with under development, slow-moving progress as well as a sense of escalating loneliness and economic and political deprivation in some areas of the country. Many Seraiki speaking people living in the Cholistan and Multan side of the Punjab want their own Seraiki province, whereas political conditions in our Balochistan province are even worse and a voice for a separate Baloach land is being raised by their leaders. My idea will also be a sign of relief for those people who want their own exclusive provinces rather than living within established provincial boundaries, or where separation movements have been formed in order to create their own homeland rather than being a part of the country. Implementation of this idea will not only multiply the regional bondages and attachment among all provinces, but would also help us reduce the widespread gap between rural and urban communities, especially the gap found between rather developed big cities vis-à-vis backward small cities of the same country. It will remove the sense of deprivation of the deprived masses belonging to rather underdeveloped areas of the country. “The Idea of Capital Change” is also a wonderful way to cure flawed democracy where a certain and constant majority, located a certain part of the land, is bound to rule the country democratically whereas the minority, on the other hand, can never be able to take the decisive lead during elections, thus being unable to rule the roost by any democratic means. In many countries like Pakistan, their minorities because of being low in number can never be able to form a government through democratic ways. What can be done in these conditions? And what about those supporters belonging to the losing party in the election- should they wait till the next election? Is thing not undemocratic? In a democracy, whoever wins the election leaves a permanent minority unelected despite being significant in numbers, just like a musical chair played between minority and majority offering one party to sit at a time. Especially, when minority belongs to certain ethnic or religious backgrounds, their frustration and sense of deprivation may easily ignite sectarian violence, thus leading them up to the separation of state where the minority can govern by itself e.g. Northern Ireland, Sri Lanka, and Cyprus.

The Idea: Retired army personnel of any rank should always live within public housing projects instead of residing away from the general public in their housing projects managed by respective cantonment boards. To narrow down this idea, at least one army personnel of major or colonel rank should live in a population of 10 thousand people approx. So that these retired army gentlemen can easily influence concerned civic authorities and municipal departments to ceaselessly provide basic facilities like water, electricity etc. without any disruption to the population.
The Rationale behind the Idea: The rationale behind the proposed idea is simple and straightforward because this idea has been formed keeping in view the general psyche of our nation where just the name of an influential person or authority makes the work done which cannot be even done by thousands of common people by any means. The ‘Men in Khaki’ can ideally facilitate the devolution of convenience to the grassroots level. Here where the whole nation is steered by the philosophy of “might is right”, the role of army personnel is so crucial and decisive, especially when fulfilling the public needs are concerned. In our culture, army people are considered as a symbol of strength, thus nobody dares challenge their stance in any matter. Even a retired army officer, in accordance with our social culture, is more influential than a common man. In short, they have a definite say in the running of the public affairs. That’s why; their presence could be blessing for the general people who are usually deprived of essential utilities of life or their view is taken as granted by concerned authorities. Putting retired army personnel among the general people will benefit the deprived populace almost in every matter, particularly the matters related to the continuous provision of essential utilities and amenities of life like water, electricity, gas, sanitary services and the like. As a rule, retired army people don’t live with general public which, besides many other concerns, also creates a needless gap between the army and civilians. But, coming closer to the general public will lessen not only the mentioned gap, but also appears as a revolutionary step taken for the very survival of the general populace. As per our national psyche, army people, whether working or retired, are heard at any platform with due attention. Their humble suggestions are supposed to be irreversible orders; therefore just their presence among the general masses would be sure enough for smooth running of civic matters. Here I don’t mean to impose any sort of martial law or favor the concept of un-elected representation of public representatives. Here I just stress the need of putting the retired army personnel among general public as precautionary measures adopted to pressurize the concerned civic and municipal departments. Repeating my words again, at least one army personnel of major or colonel rank should live in a population of 10 thousand people. The presence of retired army personnel among the general people will be itself a good disciplinary gesture taken in inefficient civic departments so as to make them efficient in all their operations, chiefly when it comes to fulfilling public needs. In a nutshell, retired army people should always live with the general public as they are always in an ideal position to be the person in charge.
