  • It is the most dramatic display of patriotism..

    The lowering of flags ceremony takes place at the India-Pakistan border in Wagah. I got there a little late and had to make peace with a view from the farthest seat. Long queues at the entrance gave a strong hint about the number of people who could be at the venue.

    A dash of colors hit my eye. Yellow-Green-Blue-Red.. The entire spectrum was present there. Heads bobbing up and down for as far as the eyes can go. And hands up in the air.

    Patriotic songs from movies played in the background, while people clapped and sang along.
