When Faisal Qureshi first spoke to me about this picture my initial reaction was that of indifference, as Pepsi cola Pakistan did construct this monument in the first place. However upon seeing it I am stuck inbetween a feeling or revulsion and disdain.
Why must we treat our monuments this way? If we are so hell bent in making everything commercial why make a monument at all? Why not have aÂ giant pepsi bottle on allah wali chowrangi instead?
As for people who are going to say that this is not a national monument. Allah wali chowrangi was named thus for a reason folks.
To see it turn into Blue Allah Wali chowrangi does something to you. It makes you cringe as yet another symbol of Karachi is consumed at the alter of commercialism!!
