The Radcliffe Line was published on 17 August 1947 as a boundary demarcation line between India and Pakistan upon the Partition of India. The Radcliffe Line was named after its architect, Sir Cyril Radcliffe, who was chairman of the Border Commissions.
This line divided Punjab in two parts and then that created not just another country, but another Punjab too. If we look at pre-independence era, both Lahore and Amritsar has similar cuisine, yet they are distinctive. They are rich, however food in Amritsar gets its richness because of cream and butter and food in Lahore has its richness because of slow cooking and generous use of cooking oil.
