Borders are in fact the end and beginning of many things, that define the countries divided by them. Moreover, the places, towns, and villages located near the borders inherit a very distinct history and culture. These villages havepopular ‘Wagah Border’ in their own very interesting stories to tell. India, which is landlocked towards the north and a peninsula towards the south, shares some famous as well as some infamous borders with its neighbours. While the very Amritsar is very well known to us, especially for its ‘lowering of the flags’ ceremony, which is a big draw for the tourists, the borders towards the east and northeast of India, still remain unexplored to a great extent.
