    I was going to call April fools, but I looked, and apparently this is real. I have to say it`s an AWESOME way of dealing with tension at the border. They obviously are in on it together, and try to out do each other in a civilized way. These two countries have a stormy past, afaik, and to get together like this is just a message to the world, I think.

    This is genuine and is a fantastic ritualistic closing of the border signifying the seperation of Pakistan from India but note at the end the little handshake signifies its all in fun.

    guys its weird,but its not too much weirder then the english guards that cant make a face and wear the tall hats.

    My favourite is the formal opening of the UK Parliament. No silly walks, but laden with symbolism. It also involves closing a gate of sorts - the main doors to the main chamber of the House of Commons. They`re ceremonially slammed in the face of the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod (how`s that for a title?) because he is the messenger of the monarch (who is forbidden to enter the House of Commons). It represents the independence of the Commons from the state. Exquisitely formal all round, except for the members of the Commons joking and dawdling on their way to the House of Lords (the same symbolism).

    There are Muslims on both sides of the border and note that Pakistan (mostly Muslim) closes their gate as well as India (mostly Hindu).

    My guess is that it symbolises the seperation and independence of the two countries and was probably more seriously aggressive in the past.

    wow reading the comments was funny...ok i will explain it as i am Indian.
    it is sort of hard for people to understand this unless u are not from one of these counteries..
    well first off the partition of india and Pakistan was very brutal..a lot of people were killed...
    this ceremony is a way to try to show some sort of unity for the lack of a better word. both the countries here are trying to be better...that is why for the ridiculous walk and angry faces.
    Indian and Pakistani`s are still very hostile towards each other

    British ruled subcontinent for approximately 200 years, Muslims and Hindus fought a war with british named War of Independence, which they lost, later british left sub continent and before leaving they divided the land into 2, 1 for muslims and other for hindus. And left kashmir as pain in @ss for both countries. Pls, Its our traditional police dresses, you white wears like your dress so don`t be curious.
