Plate Tectonic Theory and its Role in continental displacement

- Plate tectonics is a scientific theory. Which provides an explanation of the large-scale movements occurring on the Earth's terrain. It also attempts to explain the construction of surface relief in the form of continents, oceans and mountains, and the geographical distribution of events such as earthquakes and volcanoes. In plate tectonics, the word tectonics is derived from the Greek language, which is related to construction. The term plate was first used by Canadian geologist Wilson (Wilson) and the term plate tectonics was first used by Morgan.

This theory evolved from a concept called continental displacement envisaged in the first decade of the twentieth century when new evidence was discovered in the 1960s that strengthened the concept of continents being dynamic rather than static. The most important of these proofs. Evidence pertaining to puerperal that confirmed the Sagar Nital diffusion. The discovery of the Sagar Mittal variance by Harry Hayes is believed to be the beginning of this theory and Wilson, Morgan, McKenzie, Oliver, Parker, etc.
Scholars contributed to its promotion by providing evidence in its favor.

According to this theory, the Earth's top is about 80 to 100 km. The thick layer called the lithosphere and consisting of the crust and the upper part of the crust is broken into several pieces called plates. These plates are floating on the semipermeable layer of the asthenosphere at the bottom and are typically moving at a speed of about 10–40 mm / yr.
However, some of them have a speed of 160 mm/year. Due to the movement of these plates, the origin of the earth's present earth form and mountain formation
Interpretation is presented and it has also been observed that often earthquakes occur on the boundaries of these plates and volcanoes are also found on these plate boundaries.

This circulation of these terrestrial plates is attributed to the current distribution of continents and oceans. Where two platens diverge in opposite directions. Those edges are called creative plate edges or divergent frontiers. When two plates converge face to face, they are called perishable plate edges or convergent margins.

Plate tectonics is the most innovative theory to elucidate the distribution of continents and oceans.

The oldest oceanfront crust is located in the Western Pacific.

Its estimated age is 200 million years.

Other major plates include the Indian Plate, the Arabian Plate, the Caribbean Plate, the Majka Plate on the west coast of South America, and the Scotia Plate of the South Atlantic Ocean. About 5 to 55 million years ago, the Indian and Australian plates were one.

Seafloor spreading - is a geological concept in which it is designed that the terrain is supported by this cutaneous axis, broken by plates with support from sea lanes. And its pieces move away from each other and magma from the bottom up here forms a new terrain (plate).

Continental drift theory is called the moving of the continents of the earth in relation to each other. If seen in geographical epochs of millions of years, it seems that the continents and their seas are lying on the floor and some- The concept of flowing continents was first revealed in 1596 by Dutch scientist Abraham Ortelius.
, But in 1912 the German geologist Alfred Wegner developed it from independent study. Of plate tectonics
The theory developed which was able to explain the movement of continents more than continental flow.
According to the theory of plate tectonics, the lithosphere is divided into several rigid plates. These plates are floating over the debility located below the lithosphere. According to this theory, thermodynamic generated in geodesy
Continental and oceanic plates are displaced in different directions under the influence of currents.

Throw light on the literary contributions of Jagnik.

Jagnik has an important place in the poets of the Veeragatha period of folk literature. His time was believed to be between the 11th and 12th centuries. Jagnik was a court poet of King Parmar Chandel of Kalinjar and was a contemporary of Adi poet Chandbardayi of Hindi. Jagnik composed "Parmar Raso" and "Allhakhand". Although this poetry was not available in writing, it continued to be popular by surviving oral traditions.
"Alhakhand" belongs to the dynasty of Mahoba in which there is a story of 2 feudatories named Alha and Udal. The king himself was Bhiru and infirm, but his wife Malhna joined the war with the help of these heroes. At the end of the book, there is a compassionate scene All the heroes are killed and the queens become sati.
52 war in Alhakhand is described in the Ojmi style. From this point of view, it is the longest folk tale in the world. Full of gallantry and makeup Some of the poems of this poem are as follows- Live twelve years of poultry,…

What were the main issues before the Constituent Assembly of India? Explain.

The major issues before the Constituent Assembly of India were: Only a good constitution can provide full support in the full-fledged development of a nation, which the people of that country, themselves or the Constituent Assembly of the country have created from their experience. This statement applies in the context of India. The Constitution of India was formed by the Constituent Assembly constituted under the Cavinet Mission (1946). The major challenges / issues facing it were:
(1) To create a constitution that fulfills the aspirations of India and its large population filled with diversities.
(2) To take into consideration the immediate and long-term needs of new and newly formed India.
(2) To give a secular constitution to the country facing communal bites.
(4) To provide a system of balanced and equal governance to all sections of the minority as well as the marginalized, the underprivileged, the backward
(5) To ensure that- (i) Everyone should get representation in the Constituent Ass…

Give detailed account on localization of cement industry in Madhya Pradesh.

Cement is extensively produced in the madhya pradesh region. Cement factories were established here before independence. cement is one Of the minerals to be mined in Madhya Pradesh, only lime is extensively used for industrial use. It is the raw material for cement production. The state has an abundance of  limestone deposits based on which cement factories have been set up. ACC, the first cement factory in the state Established in 1922-23 at Banmour (Morena). Subsequently, a Partland Cement (1922–23) and an Asbestos (1935) Cement: factory were set up at the time of independence, these three cement factories currently have 23 cement factories registered. Distribution of cement factories is linked to lime reserves. The state has significant age lime deposits ranging from Damoh district to Jabalpur, Katni, Rewa, Satna and Sidhi districts. The major cement factories of the state are located in this particualr area These include Jabalpur, Kaimur near Katni, Maihar in Satna, Satna, Ramvan,…
