Transcript of About 225 million years ago, the earth contained a single la

About 225 million years ago, the earth contained a single landmass; called Pangaea. That landmass was divided into two landmasses, viz. Laurasia and Gondwana Land; about 200 million years ago. As the figures; given here show; the landmasses further broke into different parts and experienced continental drifts at various stages. The Gonwana Land included the modern day India, Australia, South America, South America and Antarctica.
The Indian Peninsula drifted towards the north and finally collided with the much larger Eurasian Plate. India is located in Asia.
The seven countries located on the Indian Subcontinent.
The Indian Peninsula drifted towards the north and finally collided with the much larger Eurasian Plate.
Himalayas/Hindu-Kush separates the Indian Subcontinent from the rest of Asia
On the border between Nepal and China is Mount Everest the highest Mountain on earth.
Deep in the Himalayas are the source of some of Asia’s mightiest rivers. 2 major river systems,Ganges & Indus,originate in the Himalayas.
Indus River also creates a fertile plain known as the Indus River Valley. This Valley was once home to the earliest Indian civilizations.
India
Location
Absolute Location
Relative Location
A Location is a particular position.
Absolute Location
The absolute location of India is (28.36 N, 77.12 E)
The absolute location os a place is its exact position on the globe.
(Latitude and Longitude)
Relative Location
Relative location of India is :
South Of China
East of the Middle East
India is a subcontinent or a large landmass that is smaller than a continent.
Place
Physical Charactersics
Human Characterstics
A Place is the human and physical characterstics of an area.
Due to the drifting of Indian Peninsula towards the north resulted in accumulation of sedimentary rocks in the geosynclines (known as Tethys), which got folded and formed the mountain systems of the West Asia and Himalaya.
Human Characteristics
Human characteristics are characteristics of people in certain area and the way they function.
Human -Environment Interaction
Human-environment interaction is how people impact environment and how environment impacts human.
People impact the environment
River and Air pollution
Too much use of crop land
Deforestation
climatic changes
Environment impacts the people
Too much rain can cause floods
Rain makes the land fertile
The relative location of a place is its location compared to other landmarks
MAJOR PHYSIOGRAPHIC DIVISIONS:

The landmass of India can be divided into

The Himalayan Mountains
The Northern Plains
The Peninsular Plateau
The Indian Desert
The Coastal Plains
The Islands
