An Extreme Showdown at the Pakistan Border
Captain and Clark go to the Pakistan border to watch India close their gate in a nightly event. Every day, at sundown, the Indian border guards get in a shouting match with the Pakistani border guards, almost kick themselves in the face, and then slam the gates closed.
This event draws tourists from all over India, who rejoice in their national pride.
A battle of pomp, circumstance, and high kicks is performed by border guards from the neighboring countries. Spectators are encouraged to join in on the action by cheering on their home country.
