Overview for The Making of India: Geodynamic Evolution

Encompassing a broad array of information related to structure and tectonics, stratigraphy and palaeontology, sedimentation and palaeogeography, petrology and geochemistry, geomorphology and geophysics, the book The Making of India presents, in a concise format, a simplified and coherent history of geological dynamical history of the Indian continent (including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Southern Tibet and Pakistan). It is an account of the geodynamic developments that took place from the beginning, around 3.4 billion years ago, to the Recent at about 10,000 years before present. Presented in a distilled form, the observations and deductions of workers (including those silent geologists whose contributions have gone and remain ‘unhonoured and unsung'), this book is meant for teachers, researchers and students of geology, geophysics and geomorphology as well as practitioners of earth sciences. A comprehensive list of original works would provide lead to those who seek details and wish to go into the depth of problems. The book is profusely illustrated with maps, cross sections and block diagrams, all simplified and redesigned.

The Making of India is a sequel of sorts of the wonderfully great works of D.N. Wadia, M.S. Krishnan and E.H. Pascoe, which bring out contributions of pioneers and giants of the pre-Independence time. The author has chosen to base his account on the works of mainly those who explored the land of India after 1947.
