A visit to Lahore would not be complete without a stopover at the Wagah border crossing with India. The changing of the guards and the flag lowering ceremony on either side of the border have become a tourist attraction as both countries try to outdo each other in the precision of their troops' drill. It's real entertainment repeated daily accompanied by the necessary chanting on either side an vocal support from the spectators.

The reciprocated expulsions of Indian and Pakistani diplomats from each other’s capitals in February followed months of key political developments in both countries. Pakistan has returned to some form of formal democracy, however flawed, and the religious right in India has made more worrying gains at the ballot box.

The India and Pakistan of today have been shaped more by their mutual relationship than any other single factor. This relation-ship has been sour at best, and hateful at worst.
