Did You Know That The Indo-Pak Border Was Visible All The Way In Space?

India and Pakistan have their fair share of conflict. Even though there is a mutually felt unease, it seems to be reduced, especially among citizens of the countries, if not the administrations. But regardless, the extreme hype surrounding the upcoming India-Pakistan match is definitely an indicator that even though there may not be outright dislike, there will always be eager competition between the two countries. But amidst all the chatter surrounding the upcoming match, we bumped into something that will give us a little perspective on the relationship between the two countries. The India Pakistan border,

The Indo-Pak border was captured from the International Space Station in 2011, highlighting how illuminated the border is at night. From 2003 onward, the Indian government has attempted to illuminate the stretch using extensive floodlights to discourage terrorist activity and arms dealings.

So while the world debates the relevance of US President Trumps’s Border Wall, we can gloat about having a glow in the dark border that  is visible from space. It is especially hilarious when you take a look at borders between other countries.

Like USA and Canada for example, where someone clearly seems to have given up on their job.

Clearly, India and Pakistan have some issues to work through. But being pretty much the same people, we’ll do it in the flashiest way possible. Because when we disagree, we make sure everyone knows. Even if they’re beyond the earth’s atmosphere.
