Fall of Berlin Wall & Rise of Joy


It was 25 years ago, two Berlins got together.  It is the first nation per my understanding to win over the partition. India never tried. Yugoslavia never tried. Tanzania’s case was different. Tanganyika and Zanzibar made Tanzania in the year of 1964 on their merger.

Unification of German was dream coming true to lot of Germans 25 years before. The Russian administered East German built the wall putting the people to people relation in danger with high alert monitoring check posts. Berlin was administered by many countries simultaneously post world war II. British Sector, American Sector and Russian Sector were the names of the sectors clearly describing the administering nation. The wall was built to stop people fleeing the communist Russia administered Germany.

Since the fall of Berlin the communist parties did not achieve significant power inside German, though they are powerful they are divided.458558820.jpg

Christian Democratic Union lead by Angela Merkel is powerful. She is the present chancellor of the nation.

The 25th year marking of Fall of Berlin Wall was celebrated in the nation’s capital. The Chancellor delivered the speech. Around 8000 helium balloons were released to the sky. The white balloons symbolized the wall were released one after the other to resemble the disappearance of the wall.

Mikhail Gorbachev, the man in power in Russia when the nation was reunified attended a ceremony in Berlin.

It was at the time of Mikhail Gorbachev, Russia lost Germany and Russia lost Soviet Union.

The people cheered each other. There were fireworks and music to mark the celebration. Mikhail Gorbachev who joined the chancellor warned the world on new cold war. Russia is flexing its muscles with west over Ukraine.
