Untold Explorations - DAY1 - Retreat ceremony, Attari Border

Image
So the next stop of Untold Tales which started with Golden temple, Amritsar
was Attari-Wagah border retreat ceremony.

As one of our fellow explorers Prathmesh said, We went from feeling highly spiritual to feeling passionately Patriotic in the very first day of our trip.

Beating Retreat ceremony consists of various activities and presentation by the BSF(Border security force) followed by a powerful parade by the soldiers and the coordinated lowering of both nation's flag.

While we were rushing in through the queue what we had in mind was what we had always seen in videos and tv, high towering soldiers with those fantail turbans kicking high in the air and marching strong.


It was both funny and shameful to see lighters, tobacco and bidi packets scattered around the queue. Mostly people who were carrying these things heard the announcements informing of all the things prohibited and chose to drop it there instead of finding a dustbin.



Once inside we rushed to find a sweet spot from…

My experience:

When I was searching for a Dry fruit and Spices retailer, I went to many stores and ended up liking this places and buying whatever was required from here.
The staff is friendly and welcoming, they recommend the right products and give good information about each.
I had been to Amritsar-Kullu-Manali trip and came to realise the quality and the prices of the dry fruits sold here were same or even better than those I found there.

Recommended for those looking for various flavored Cashews right from Classic salted to Masala to Chocolate to cheese and what not.
