Kartarpur from border ...........................000000000 Clicked by an ordinary camera-Sony Digital DSC-P93 i.e without any tele-lens. If possible enlarge the photo. The white spot is Kartarpur. 2. Pakistan Boys on Border. They are perhaps lost. They were roaming about the Barbed wire. Some one suggested that they could be searching for some of their beasts : cow , buffalo etc. They were quite unaware that any slip of foot to Indian side would mean instant opening of fire by the BSF men. In the background for miles it is the elephant grass around. At bottom barbed wire fence is also visible. 3. The road from Dera baba Nanak towards Kartarpur 4. Most beautiful Palki at Dera Baba Nanak Gurdwara Darbar Sahib. It was presented by Maharja Ranjit Singh 5. The place on Dhussi where we reach from Dera Baba Nanak. BSF have erected barricades and sign boards about Kartarpur also installed. 6. School children on a picnic to Border- Seen in the Dera Baba Nanak main street. More over I am sorry to say that there is no progress as to opening of Corridor to Kartarpur. I don't see any possibility of its opening on Sept. 22, 2005 as reported earlier. Also the construction of gate on corridor which was inaugurated on July 16 by Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa MLA has come to a standstill. No addition brick laid after 20-7-05. It appears that anti-Punjabi lobby has prevailed upon Randhawa to abandon the work.
