waggah/attari border-Aug 26th, 2005 at 12:32 PM

When I was in Amritsar, before coming back to Dehli I decided that i was close enough to PK not to miss the opportunity to see it...so I went to the famous Attari border station, Wagah on the PK side....I was really excited to see Pakistan for the first time! and felt so emtional when i heard the pakistani crowd singing pakistan zindabad!...and the nice green and white flag swinging in the wind...or thanx to energic men dressed in green salwar qameez with a white crescent and star in the middle!
It was a great show, military guys very tall, in funny costumes did a prarde on each side...while the crowd was exhorted to shout patriotic slogans, along with loud desi music...so that each side could not hear the other one....at the end they pulled down the flags...indian on indian side, pakistanis on pakistan side...shut a last time til the next day, the border....
very emotional and fun experience as the public...numerous was really enthusiastic...especially those young punjabi guys dancing on bhangra rythmn...i liked it!
