The 18th century folk tale of Mai Kolaci tells of a young fisherwoman who lived in a settlement near Keamari Bunder. When her husband Sanwal, who had gone on a fishing trip, failed to return even after fifteen days. She set off looking for him in the churning waves of the Arabian Sea in her battered boat. The violent storm rolled and rocked the fragile craft and blasted it to tiny shreds. The mighty waves threw Mai Kolachi on the shores of Girzi Bunder where, miraculously, she found Sanwal.
a tribute to her gallantly and loyalty, the village elders named their
settlement Mai Kolachi Goth. That village has changed its name and dimensions
to Karachi, a
Karachi remained capital of Pakistan since the creation of Pakistan and then it was shifted to Islamabad. Now it is the capital of Sindh Province.
