Between the Lines : Wagah Border

It was an amazing feeling when I first visited Wagah border this winter .Wagah Border is only road border crossing two historic cities Amritsar in India and Lahor in Pakistan.Historically , the village Wagah was divided at the time of Independence in 1947 , as a result of which eastern part of the village Wagah still remains in India and the western part of Wagah remains in Pakinstan .If you turn the pages of  history , a lot of painful tragedies along with terrified partition stories are still attached to the village called Wagah……
