They cover approximately 1,500 mi (2,400 km) and pass through the nations of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Bhutan, and Nepal. The Himalayan range is made up of three parallel ranges often referred to as the. Greater Himalayas, The Lesser Himalayas, and The Outer Himalayas. Ecology of the Himalayan Range Montane Grasslands and Shrublands, Temperate Coniferous Forest, Temperate Broadleaf and Mixed Forests, Tropical and Sub-tropical Broadleaf Forests. Highest Peak of the Himalayan Range Mount Everest at 29,029 ft (8,848 m) is not only the highest peak in the Himalayas but the highest peak on the entire planet. Other famous peaks include Karakoram (K2), Kailash, Kanchenjunga, Nanga Parbat, Annapurna, and Manasklu. Rivers of the Himalayan Range The Himalayas are the source for the Indus, the Yangtze, and the Ganga-Brahmaputra. All three are major river systems for the continent of Asia. The main rivers sourced in the Himalayas are the Ganges, Indus, Yarlung, Yangtze, Yellow, Mekong, and Nujiang. Glaciers of the Himalayan Range The Himalayas are the third-largest deposit of ice and snow in the world, after Antarctica and the Arctic. There are approximately 15,000 glaciers located throughout the range. At 48 miles (72 km) in length, the Himalayan Siachen glacier is the largest glacier outside the poles.

They pose an intellectual challenge to the religious and social orthodoxy of the Hinduism. As a mark of emancipation from decayed traditions they exulted in taking beef and drinking wine, which they regarded as a yardstick to measure their freedom from all religious superstition and prejudice and a notable effort to break social fetters. The Derozians also supported women’s rights and education. In 1828 Derozio founded with his students the ‘Academic Association’, which organized debates on various subjects. Another organization of the Young Bengal was the ‘Society for the Acquisition of General Knowledge’ founded in 1838. Tarachand Chakravarty was the president of the society and secretaries were Peary Chand Mitra and Ramtanu Lahiri. The Young Bengal published quite a few journals between 1828 and 1843—among these were the Parthenon, Hesperus, Jnanannesan, Enquirer, Hindu Pioneer, Quill and the Bengal Spectator. The greatest folly on the part of the Young Bengal, however, was that they found perfection in everything western. The Derozians lacked any real link with the masses. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
