Ever Wondered! What if you are a Border?

Every child plays the character of a tree, a flower, a Santa and a lot at least in their school play. When you play a flower all you need to do is smile. When you play a Santa all you need to do is spread love and joy.

What if you are asked to play the character of a Border? What all emotions one has to portray to play a Border? Sadness, hatred, anger, scared, unpleasant, regret and the list of negative traits can go on.

As an Indian the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the word border is the India-Pakistan border. There is always news of tension about Indo-Pak border. History knows how many soldiers of both countries have lost their lives in various wars.

We have been always taught to respect our Mother India, the national personification of India as a mother goddess. And I believe the same has been taught to people of other nations. Just think for a moment if you are a border and the situation is tensed, people are fighting with each other and innocents are being killed. What is the reason? There is no reason.

I had gone to India-Pakistan Wagah Border in 2012 and witnessed the Parade. Before the parade they allow women to dance on the various patriotism songs, which they play. I got all excited and didn’t leave this wonderful opportunity. It was a breathtaking experience and one can feel the love for the country. The same scenario was on the other side, Pakistan.

I don’t think we need wars to resolve issues between the two countries. Our border needs more love. And when you get a chance to dance on the surface of your border, you feel love, happiness, satisfaction, welcome and joy.
I want to be a border that portrays such happy emotions. I don’t want my border to feel guilty that people are getting killed across it. Let’s respect our Borders.

  1. Such an interesting look at the artificial lines between countries. Funny how the guys in the space station can’t see the lines that people often die over. Very insightful post!
