India and Pakistan National Border Closing Ceremony.





This ceremony is regarded as one of the most intimidating and aggressive peace time border displays in the world. It has become a tourist attraction as people gather on both sides of the India/Pakistan border to watch the border closing drill. Each nation has its soldiers looking pristine as they lower their national flags and close the border gates.

It is a disciplined drill as Indian and Pakistani soldiers go through their respective drills of lowering the flag and closing the gates. It is almost a competition display as each border guard tries to out do the other with pristine drill movement. 

If watching peacocks buff out their plumage and displaying their wears is your thing, then maybe you'll like this.
