This Used To Happen Every Day1 Jun 2012 No Comments
The Attari Closing Ceremony used to take place every day at the Wagh border between India and Pakistan till 2010. Because of it being the only road crossing between the two countries and due to the increased tension between them, lowering the flag ceremony was a bit more…..thrilling. The lowering of the flags or “retreat” ceremony was more like a parade and a show for the people attending on both sides of the border.
It was canceled due to increased injuries to soldiers’ knees and backs from all the “Goose-Walking” taking place.
