Wagah Border History
I am neither a supernatural thing nor a creation of God. My identity came into being when the Radcliffe line was drawn, thus distinguishing India and Pakistan, and dividing the village of Wagah into eastern and western parts. The eastern part went to India, and the western part in the newly born Pakistan.
I was the gate that saw the bloodshed of the partition and the exodus of millions of people across me. I suddenly gained supreme importance as I served as the international border checkpoint between the countries. Personally speaking though, my heart broke into tears that day. I was unable to distinguish between men who had grown playing in my vicinity, but I was helpless. I couldn't do anything but to accept their decision. Yeah, the boys had grown up and they could take their own decisions.
