Various places in Karachi are being decorated differently, with some being really weird as Inspirex noted earlier. This new(?) arch marks the end (or begining, depends on how you look at it) of the Kalapul bridge here.
At first, i thought it may have been part of some religious (or other) festival which the residents of the area celebrate with much fervour, however.. that was not to be as after almost months, this arch still stands tall proclaiming… something.
On another note, although i’ve referred this particular Kalapul bridge, i dont think that would be the correct name, as Kalapul itself means Black Bridge (i think?). Initially added to denote a bridge, the word ‘pul’ has now become part of the name itself. Should then ‘bridge’ be added to Kalapul when using it in english? and if so, when reffering to it in urdu, would you now say kalapul pul?
