I was reading a chapter about Partition of British India. And, in it, there was a section which was titled as:
A momentous marker
I wasn't sure what the word "marker" exactly meant here. And when I checked its translation in the Hindi version of my book, marker was translated to 'मोड़' which means 'turn'. So, what exactly is the meaning of "marker" in this context? Does it mean that "the thing being described as marker" marks a moment in history apart?
