A couple of years ago my family and I accidentally chanced upon a quaint little restaurant in Islamabad. It was nestled among a cluster of small shops, the kind you sometimes find in the centre of a residential area.

It was modeled after “The Leaky Cauldron ” the tavern in the Harry Potter series. The owner had furnished it with a lot of Harry Potter merchandise. Robes and broomsticks were available for customers to take selfies.

What I found remarkable was that a whole wall was covered with post -its / sticky notes of various colours. The management supplied one to each customer and asked them to write their favourite Harry Potter quotations or any Potter related comment. These were then put up on the wall.

This activity must have worked out well as a marketing ploy for the restaurant has done rather well. On a recent trip to Islamabad I saw it relocated to an upmarket commercial area.
