Where In The World

IT'S to India this week with Adver readers Jasjeet and Amarjit Manku, who returned home recently from Punjab to visit family. "One day we decided we wanted to see something special so we went to the Wagah border where India and Pakistan's border is," writes Jasjeet. "It is about 30 km from Amritsar. On that day it was very hot around the 40s. "The Wagah border often called the 'Berlin Wall of Asia'. It has been there since the 1947 division of the two countries when India and Pakistan gained independence when India was controlled by the British empire. "There is a parade and ceremony that takes place daily on both sides of the border in the late afternoons. It was a interesting event to see the gates that are on the border open up by the Indian Border Security Force and Pakistani Officials, which involves retreat of "lowering of the flags" followed by the parade. "People from all over India come to see this daily event as well as foreigners who all sit down on the grand stands built both sides of the border." The brothers are pictured on the Indian side of the border, with Pakistan and the border gates in the background.
