    My Hubby Prak planned for a surprise visit as my birthday gift. I guessed it should be Taj Mahal as he love to see Taj at Winter season. He used to tell me.. Taj has mesmerizing beauty in Winter.. It is lovely to see among mist.

    But the gift trip was - A great and special Darshan at Golden temple Amrister.


    Prak love Gujarat a lot. after that He likes Punjab. yes it has the valuable reasons to be.


    I found Punjab is the state of Spirituality- Culture- Patriotism.


    i am hear to share my experience in Amrister for two days.


    We started in sadhapti train from Delhi by 7.20 am. We reached there by 2.00. we planned to finish the lunch by 3 and start to Wagah Border.


    Wagah Border- India Pakistan Border

    we hired a auto- who took us from railway station...
    he was very respectful and very caring...
    all the way i was wondering how he made his tarban in his head..
    it was beautiful and well did.

    The whole route was very green.. it was very nice to see agricultural farms after long time

    It was about 20minutes travel. We reached the border.. as it is saturday.. it was heavy rush.. If we dont go in time, we wont get place.


    Prak took my hand and started running. I followed him.. in all direction he turned me...


    We were stopped for checking, in checking it got heavy late. At last we lost. We could not make it. We are at last.


    Me and prak decided to jump and pass the gate (a small gate which is at India arch- inside this the parade happens)


    Prak jean tore... but he did not stop screaming loud "vande mathram" i know prak is patriotic, but i saw his patriotism in this occasion only...


    Superb Parade. thousands of people gathered... all loud at maximum of their voice "vande mathram"


    Wow... What a great situation... it was creating horripilation all over my body.

    even when i am writing this i am getting goosebumps..

    The practice is.. daily by morning 6 they hoist the flag, and by evening 6 they dehoist the Flag. This happens in both the border. During this, parade and "vande Madaram" sounds loud as giving respect to national flag.

    Then comes Delhi- Lahore- Delhi bus.

    There is daily bus which starts by evening 6. it has Syrians. When this bus enters India in front two gaurds and back two gaurds gives protection. the same they do in Pakistan. It is 18 hour journey.

    See the Pakistani Girl with smile..

    Golden Temple- Gurudwara

    It is a punjabi temple. One of the most important place in India. After Thirupathi, in this temple they provide 24/7 food to all people, without any partiolity as rich and poor.

    Me and prak had dinner here only.

    It was very very cold there. They have provided warm water to wash the hands and foot and have to walk in bare foot in the temple. The white marble freeze our legs.

    I was very much impressed here is there is no employees in the temple only helpers. The helpers are the devotees. from the foot wear collection to cleaning and washing the plates everything is done by the devotees.

    It was awesome to see in the night. the temple was glowing.
