India and Pakistan are set to install new gates at the Attari-Wagah border in Punjab. Every evening visitors from both sides throng at Attari-Wagah border to watch the lowering of the national flags.
The Beating Retreat drill involves the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Pakistan Rangers clanging shut the gates for the night at the joint check post amid a synchronised display of aggression.
The motive behind the new gates is to give audience a better view of the daily spectacle. The new gates are likely to be completed and put up by the end of the month. However, the workers say that they are aiming to finish the work by August 14.
