There are bunch of small tyre shops at the far end of the Salwa Road on the right side just before you get to the Industrial Area. They are called ‘Punctury’, that is a place to get a puncture fixed.


It’s an entirely new word to me. It sounds like it could have come from Indian English, although I don’t recall ever seeing the word in India. But its in common use here, and has a certain literal inventiveness.
