India's tallest flag post at Attari borderIndia's tallest flag post has been inaugurated at the Indo-Pak Attari border on last Sunday. The post is so high that it (along with the flag) can be seen from Lahore. Punjab Minister Anil Joshi inaugurated the country's largest tricolour on the tallest flag post - measuring 110 metres in length, 24 metres in width and 55 tons in weight. The cost has been around Rs. 3.50 crore has been borne by the Punjab government. The flag post will definitely become an attraction for thousands of tourists in India as well as from Pakistan.
However, Pakistani authorities are not very happy with the flag. They are afraid that India could use this flag post for spying. Pakistanis have conveyed their objection to the Border Security Force authorities during a flag meeting. But who cares about their objection? The flag post is well inside Indian territorry.
I went to Amritsar last November. I have to visit the city and the border-post again.
