Fatima Bhutto pens an article on her experience when she visited Amritsar.

If you walked between Pakistan and India, it would take you three minutes. But because of this, because of borders and nation states, it takes an hour. As I come out of Attari, the same wheat fields all around me, the earth the same shades of gold and green, and the same smell of the sun burning against the dust make me feel I haven’t moved. Lahore isn’t like Amritsar. It is Amritsar. Punjab is Punjab, no matter what side of the border you stand on.
Driving past Pul Kanjri, where Shah Jahan built canals to carry water to the Shalimar Gardens in Lahore, I understand why Cyril Radcliffe, the lawyer called in to partition India, reportedly went mad. How do you divide a soul?
After reading the above article, I went to Google maps and wanted to see how the central Punjab looks like without the lables and by just looking at the geography how can anyone rationally think of cutting a line across this region.
