On my recent recruitment trip to India, I was busy representing Humber College and meeting prospective students across the length and breadth of the country.
Amidst all this, I couldn’t help feeling the pulse of each place. No matter the time constraints, the sights, sounds and smells just wouldn’t leave me alone. The traveler in me loves to dive into the cultural treats of my host city.
The Wagah Border, on the road connecting India and Pakistan, was such a delight!
Here, the security forces from the two countries follow a military practice of lowering their flags along with a quick handshake, before shutting their ‘national’ gates for the day. Tourists like me waited anxiously to see the two security forces work with such coordination.
In Amritsar, Punjab, I was moved by the grandeur and peace found at the Golden Temple. Being the most sacred place for Sikhs, this temple draws many visitors from across the world.
No trip to India goes without a Bollywood moment. Here, I took a pause at Khalsa College where I had my “Veer-Zaara” and “Rab ne Bana Di Jodi” moment (which also happened at the Golden Temple!)- basking in the beautiful background, reminiscing the two beautiful love stories found in both movies.
