QR Code to depict glory of Amaravati

Invitations are not just one’s introduction but they also declare the event’s theme, colour and fabric. Besides being incredible, the invitation should include specific information. But what does one do to accommodate a slightly lengthy piece of information? There may be additional information you may need to add, depending on the type of event.

In such cases, one can rely on smart ways, like what Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has done—bring in technology in the form of QR code.

Yes, that’s what Mr. Naidu has done in the Amaravati foundation laying ceremony invitation cards which would go to every state across the country in the next few days.

He roped in members of Youth Indians, the younger generation of the local chapter of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), who have worked out a novel means to provide a peek into the hoary past of Amaravati to the guests receiving the cards. “We have created a QR code on the card which will direct one to the short video on YouTube. The video depicts how Amaravati became the capital city five times and its glorious history. Chief Minister wanted something very different…something that would put people on a celebration mode. We have designed this concept and he is very excited about it,” said Vamsi Valluru and Sandeep Mandava of Young Indians.

A QR code is abbreviated from Quick Response Code.
