It had been close to three months since I went for a long ride, so I spoke to a few friends of mine and planned a ride to one of my all time favorite destinations, Amritsar. I am in love with both the journey and the destination itself. We reached Amritsar early and decided to ride to the Wagah border. The Wagah border is a transit terminal and a railway station between Pakistan and India. It is very popular for the flag ceremony that happens between the two countries every day two hours before sunset. It was my first time and the atmosphere was electrifying! The ceremony is a once in a lifetime experience everyone should have. There were thousands of people on both sides dancing, singing patriotic songs, and excitedly looking forward to the ceremony.
In the middle of all this, I noticed a person wearing all white, holding a mic and moving around. I asked my friend about him and he shared that the man is the facilitator who conducts the ceremony. I really liked his presence and watched him very closely.
Below are a few behaviours that enabled him to do an amazing job:
My experience was enriching, as you can tell from the observations above. But don’t just take it from me; go and experience the uniqueness of the Wagah Border for yourself!
