Generations of Guardians



Couldn’t resist Sharing this beautiful picture with you … If you’ve been to Wahgah and have witnessed the ceremony there. I’m sure a smile will touch your lips after seeing this (unless you’re a born sadist =) )

What do you see in here, want to share?

Ciao!

    Thats sooo Cute.
    I have seen the ceremony and …. i cannot see but hear a faint sound that his small foot would make by hitting the road.

    Another child being brainwashed to grow up to kill infidels?

    The ceremony at Wagah is nothing more than pompous display of machismo and bravado by cocky soldiers from both sides.

    The step to allow the movement of cargo trucks across the borders is a prudent move to facilitate trade between the two countries.

    Amazing picture.
    Who took this photograph? The smile on the guy’s face is so expressive.

    Ejaz Asi Umm hain … are you looking at the right pic?? :P

    Pretty Simple Cute naa … i thought so too … and sweet what a thought :)

    JayJay Are we not a bit disillusioned within ourselves?? I feel so. We are now so prone to seeing the negative side of everything that a simple smile can appear manipulative … am i calling up for JayJay’s wrath ;-)

    Neena :>

    JayJay has a point. We need to move on.

    A4PA: Thanks. No wrath here. It was my way of viewing it – slightly different to yours. Perhaps, we need to change our role models for our children. A child dressed as a doctor, nurse, fireman, judge etc might be more appropriate.

    I think our militant aspirations are things of a past. It is the age of economy, not politics and idealogy anymore.

    Neena: Thanks. Much appreciated.

    Very Valid point JayJay … I guess I misunderstood you … :-)


  11. Neena (unregistered) on October 4th, 2007 @ 12:44 pm

    Now this kind of Wagah our kids should know about.

    Policewomen and on motorcycles – Wow! Lahore is so ahead in this, I wish I able to see such openess in Karachi and other cities.

    PS. Excuse the multiple comments but I’m unable to post two links in one post.

    Nice to see my pic. being discussed, and it is always refreshing to see opposing view-points.

    This pic. was taken during a photo excursion to Wahgah border with Pakistani Photographers from Flickr.
