Wagha Border Ceremony 2007
At Wagha we saw an extraordinary spectacle. Every morning and night there is a ceremony when the border between India and Pakistan is opened and closed. The soldiers make choreographed, aggressive movements and the crowds that gather to watch shout patriotic slogans towards the Indian side. It's an extraordinary sight, but frankly rather unsettling. Even though most of the people present seemed to enjoy themselves, it can't be a good way to improve international tolerance and cooperation. The photos that follow tell the story...

See a (shaky) video of a part of the ceremony.
