"You look at where you're going
and where you are and it never makes sense,
but then you look back at where you've been and a pattern seems to emerge.

Octroi Post-Indo-Pak Border
Pakistan- I hope all thats between us would be solved ot atleast take a back seat and we could live as neighbours should live. Will the day dawn when we could walk down one such border post into Pakistan, go to the Indus valley sites of Mohenjodaro?
I hope it happens.
Never the less we are at the Octroi border, near the Suchet Garh village. A very short distance from Jammu. This post is devoid of all the glamour associated with the Wagha Border and is a silent place, with farmers grazing the land on both sides and the birds chirping (yes from both sides -they know no border)
The milestone says Sialkot 11 km (someone remarked- this is where Sania Mirza lives now)
Entry through the above gate brings to this last point
