Wagah Border

by on July 16, 2007

wagah-border-ceremony.jpgAround Amritsar is the Wagah border, which is always filled with a noisy crowd for the presenting of arms each sunset at this checkpoint on the border with Pakistan. India’s BSF and Pakistan’s Rangers vie for applause and try to outdo each other in ceremony. On special occasions, such as the night of 14th august, when the midnight hour marks the end of Pakistan’s Independence celebrations and the start of India’s, there are peace vigils. At such times, depending on the state of relations between neighbours, small groups from both the sides is allowed to meet in the no man’s land. These meetings are few and far between, as each side tends to wait for the other to grant permission first. wagah-border.jpgFor the rest of the year, there’s not much to see here apart from barbed wire, surly guards and the elegant gate at the far end of the Pakistan side.
