Landed Amritsar around 12:30 p.m. Our cab was waiting at the airport.. we headed straight to Wagah border.. On way we had the most delicious Makai ki roti and Sarso ka saag.. Reached border area around 2:30p.m. It was too crowded but security and arrangements were very good . After a long queue, we catched the glimpse of one of the most popular international border- WAGAH BORDER, rushed to find some place to sit with a good view. Though the parade was still 3 hours away, the sitting stand was fully crowded.. Somehow we managed to sit..
There were people from different states, language, religion.. The one thing that was common was they all were Indians and even a non-patriotic person can feel like amazing blood rush full of patriotism, seeing the INDO-PAK BORDER.
Around 5;45 just before sundown, parade started .30 minutes of treat to our eyes.... Wow..What a display by our soldiers. It was such a splendid view..
The whole crowd started cheering in one language .."Bharat Mata Ki Jai"
Never felt so patriotic in my life before..Looking at the energy level and such a spectacular display , it was over whelming..
Around 7 pm, we left the border area and checked in our hotel.. Night stay in Amritsar .
