Abstract

The peninsula of India can be divided into three distinct segments: (1) tbe great alluvial plains of North India, (2) the peninsula of Deccan, south of the Vindhya mountains and (3) the great mountain barrier which surrounds the plains to the West, North and East, known as the extra peninsula . Climatically India presents as great contrasts as any area of similar size. In the north-west lies the Rajaputana desert with an average annual rainfall of less than 5 inches and at the NorthEeast in Assam is Chirrapunji with an average of about 430 inches.
