Young men prepare for dancing Bhangra Dance to welcome the arrival of the opening of the India—Pakistan border at Attari/Wagah for the first cross-border Pakistani tourist bus. Bhangra Dance is a traditional dance developed in the Punjab, and since the Partition in 1947, Punjab is split into Pakistan and India. Prior to the Partition, Punjabi men of all faiths danced traditional Bhangra. However, after the Partition, the Sikhs and Hindus moved to the Indian Punjab, where the free form of traditional Bhangra developed.
