Sunset visit to the Wagah ceremony


| May 15, 2020

Each day at sunset the border guards of India and Pakistan assemble for the border closing ceremony. In eager anticipation of the spectacle, the crowd launch into a hedonistic series of Bollywood songs and dancing. Each army parades in an immaculately turned out display of synchronised marching and bellowed military commands, with each side doing its best to out-do the other with its shouting and marching. The ritual ends as the sun goes down and the flag of each country is lowered before the border gates are finally closed for the day. Share:
