Wagah has been a fascination since childhood. I have heard so much about the place that it had to be my next stop. I reached Wagah at dawn and directly stood in the line to watch the flag of India and Pakistan being hoisted. I remember the feel, as though I was a Indian and this was my flag. The slogans on both sides, the patriotic songs, the enthusiasm in the crowd and much more. Everything seemed surreal at that point. I stood there hoping to catch the glimpse of the army men doing the parade and their routine. I was not disappointing. The ceremony lasted two hours and it was a memory to cherish. My day was finally worth it. All the travelling was worth it. I took lunch at a nearby hatchet. Then came a stroll at a nearby park where I spent my afternoon speaking to local residents and tourists. There was this one man who was selling cotton candy on that day. When I asked him how long he has been there, he answered "Madam! I dont remember myself. We came here 40 years back and I have taken over the business from my dad. We have seen the border change every year, with new army men and new force. we have seen two wars and yet we hope to see peace among the countries". I was left astonished. I thought to myself the consequence of peace and war. This moment, i decided to go in search of heroes of war and stories of India.
Anybody else have had an epiphany moment at the wagah border? Let me know
