Explosion of Colour, a Bus in Pakistan


Whether it is  buses, lorries or boats, the signature of Pakistani vehicles is an explosion of colour. Beautiful naively painted and festooned buses are seen everywhere in Pakistan. Every inch of space of the truck both inside and out are painted in bright colours and naive patterns  . Painted buses and trucks are iconic of Pakistan. Tied either to the side wing mirror or at the back is often a black rag  waving like a horse tail . This is to “deflect the evil eye” that the gaily painted vehicle might attract. Everyone bus or truck owner will ensure such a anti-evil-eye charm is in place.
