Wagah is the only road border crossing between Pakistan and India, and lies on the Grand Trunk Road between the cities of Amritsar, Punjab, India, and Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.
The border is located 22 km (13.75 mi) from Lahore and 32 km (19.88 mi) from Amritsar.
Wagah, named Wahga in Pakistan, is a village through which the controversial Radcliffe Line, the boundary demarcation line dividing India and Pakistan upon the Partition of India, was drawn. The village was divided by independence in 1947. Today, the eastern half of the village remains in the Republic of India while the western half is in Pakistan.
It is particularly known for the elaborate Wagah border ceremony that happens at the border gate before sunset each day.

indian hands and feet….traditional arts and crafts of india
India has some truly amazing workmanship. This film explores some of the traditional arts and crafts of India, which one-day may be taken over by machines like the rest of the world. Some of the skills include; jewellery making, wood carving, sowing, embroidery, stone carving, shoe making, book binding, weaving, inlaying, and an ancient method of naturally dying fabrics. Not only do they use their hands in India, but also their feet!
This film was filmed over a 6-month period while travel around the whole of India January-July 2012 directed by Serena Aurora.
I backpacked around India for 6 months and was in ore of all the skills I saw around me. I saw craft made by hand, which to be honest I don’t see that much of in my normal day-to-day life. So I wanted to awaken people and show them what people can do with their hands and feet.
