Monty Python at the Pakistan/India border

From long-time reader "NU" comes this surreal video.  When India and Pakistan were partitioned in 1947 there were new borders that had to be created.  This is the city of Wagah which was split in half by the border.  Today there is a ceremony of sorts when the border closes each night.  This is real, not a skit and I can only say if this is really what happened when India split, we are in serious trouble.

This is not the original video sent in by "NU" because I had to look and see what else was out there.  This video is done by a Monty Python member, Michael Palin.
