To Karachi, with love: The road most travelled gets a facelift
There is a road named after one of the most influential men of the Parsi community – Seth Eduljee Dinshaw. It stretches from the Karachi Port Trust building to the Old Customs House and has been there since pre-Partition.
For years, this road has been ignored and it seems like the city and government are finally taking ownership in their hands. The Karachi Port Trust, Customs office of Karachi and the Sindh government have taken an initiative to restore the road to its former glory by working on the Eduljee Dinshaw Road Project.
“Karachi has a rich heritage where it had beautiful buildings and roads. This project will revive the city,” said Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad at the project’s inauguration ceremony on Tuesday. “We will also restore Empress Market and its surrounding areas. Karachi is a city not just of people who speak different languages but also those who practise different religions. This is a unique project which will revive Karachi.”
