    India / Pakistan Border


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mmaclean, 33, was in Delhi, India, for a three-week MBA course back in January 2012, when he decided to visit Amritsar for the Wagah Border Ceremony that happens every day at the border of Pakistan and India. "[The Military] hold[s] everyone back to perform this ceremony, and once it's over and the gates are closed back up they release the lines holding everyone back and let them rush to the gates," he said. "It was in this moment [that] I quickly decided to run with [the crowd]."

    At the front of a crowd at the Pakistan border in India. It was a cold, rainy day in January and there weren't very many tourists present for the Wagah Border Ceremony. That didn't stop local Indian's from coming out to celebrate. They released the line holding us back from the gate and in a split second I decided to run with the crowd towards it. At the very front and barely able to move, I quickly snapped this selfie with the crowd behind me.
