Wagah Border Ceremony
Wagah is a village through which the controversial Radcliffe Line was drawn and resulted in being divided between two countries, by Indian Independence in 1947. Today, the eastern half of the village remains in the Republic of India while the western half is in Pakistan. The Wagah Border Ceremony takes place at sundown, an intrinsic post independence ritual that takes place every day between the Indian Army and the Pakistani Rangers. Smartly dressed soldiers put up a well coordinated and spectacular display of taking their respective countriy’s flags down marching aggressively under loud orders and amidst pulsating cheering from the crowds of both the countries.
