Geetha Yogachandran as Asian "Face of London"

The Asian “Face of London” on mural painted at the “Fast Forward” Event in Trafalgar Square



As part of the plan, to make London the culture city of the world, “Fast Forward”, partnered with the ‘Arts Council England’, ‘Decibel’, ‘London 2012’, ‘BBC Blast’ and the Mayor of London; Trafalgar Square hosted the event on Sunday, 22nd August. A bright, sunny London was inviting, where the pigeons gave way to hundreds of people of all colours, shapes and sizes, for this event, which showcased many a talented artiste.

Of this event, which featured many a talented artiste on the specially erected stage, the highlights were: rapper Estelle, singer Terri Walker and the very talented JJC (the man behind UJ Supergroup, Big Brovas) and his 419 squad, who represent Nigeria, Africa. With some remixed Bollywood music keeping the crowds and specially choreographed dancers entertaining the crowds, the “Faces of London” mural, which was painted live, during the afternoon, on a massive canvas, by aerosol artistes, Mac1 and Tassle 2004 attracted an enormous amount of interest.

The painting itself was of major monuments of London (like the London Eye, Big Ben e.t.c.) and it included 4 faces of the different ethnicities that make up this city, chosen from a competition run by Shehani Fernando of BBC.

Catching up with the Asian face of London, British Sri Lankan, ‘Geetha Yogachandran’, who was chosen among many entrants, she tells us: “Although I was not born in London, but in my Native of Sri Lanka, I have a diverse background, having grown up in Sri Lanka, Denmark and Nigeria, West Africa; I then spent all of my teenage years onwards, in London (East, West and South) and find that it is the place that offers all the culture I need - whether this is Carnatic (South Indian) music, R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae music, Jazz or Western Classical or the food, my diet ranging from Sri Lankan to Nigerian to Thai to Italian to Lebanese - I feel that in my varied travel around the world, no other city comes close to bringing the multi-culturalism that London does, although some element of racism is prevalent, the vibe of the city is one that embraces us all and encourages the various ethnicities to pool together, to make something very special indeed. I feel like a true Londoner and am someone who wants to give back, to this city of much joy.”

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
