Wagah border ceremony

Wagah border lowering of the flags ceremony in Pakistan
Visited in December 2013

I have some ‘border’ experiences. But this Pakistan-India border is special. They make a ceremony out of their border, like a sports game. There are supporters, cheer men (not girls, unfortunately). People are shouting each other. It is a sort of a game or a show. For Pakistani side, men on one side and women on the other side. But still, this is a little too much nationalistic for my taste. Why not a common ceremony of one Punjabi for two countries?
