the sun decides to say goodbye to a peaceful
day its time For the reunion, which transcends
the boundaries, that man has laid. From
Amritsar 35 Km on the road to Lahore(Pakistan),
is India-Pakistan border, which is also known
as "Attari(India)-"Wagah" (Pakistan) border.
A visit to the border is an interesting
experience, especially at sun-set, when
the retreat ceremony takes place with the
Border Security Force (B.S.F.) on the Indian
side and The Sutlej Rangers on the Pakistan
side putting up a well co-ordinated and
spectacular display which compares very favorably with the changing of royal guard
The sound from the bugles blown together
from both sides paints past on the canvas
when India and Pakistan were one, simultaneously
Flags of the two nations are ceremoniously
retrieved and lights are switched on marking
the end of the day amidst thunderous applause.
Today this point is only land route to approach
Pakistan and central Asia.
