I would say that the word carousel has come to apply to things that go around in circles.

For me being an Indian and English not being my primary language carousel is a new term for me. As I could vaguely remember in airports the round belt that carries luggage is announced as carousels. I observed it when I have visited US, in India that is called as luggage belt. Since then I was assuming carousels is not just a design word but used in general. Is it not the case?
