  • The distributions of intensity and orientation of maximum shearing stress in typical stress systems at Pachmarhi are plotted on stereographic projections, in order to show the three-dimensional relationships. Mathematical expressions of these relationships as well as graphical methods of evaluation are given. Read More...

  • It is possible to explain the shape of the remarkable Dyke pattern surrounding the Pachmarhi, by an analysis of stresses if a regional-stress system in which the direction of greatest principal pressure was parallel to the line of symmetry exhibited by the Dyke pattern superposed on a localstress system is assumed. Read More...

  • The Denwa, Sonbhadra, Bainganga, and Nagdwari rivers, in the Pachmarhi and Rift alleys substantiate the premise of this paper, that wear-phenomena offer a rational approach to river-bed-profile morphology. Read More...

  • the analysis of form in geomorphology can have several purposes and can be carried out in many different ways. The examples of Diu and Daman coastal spit that have been considered briefly are concerned with aspects of coastal spit formation. Read More...

  • to explain the geomorphic aspects, examples are given from well known Jaypee Groups Dam and hydraulic constructions and Worlds important river project. Morpho logy may be defined as the science of structure or form "and fluvial may be defined as produced by the action of flowing water." Read More...

  • The Pachmarhis summits, ridges and plateau, indeed all protuberant land forms , are the features actually formed due toTemperature variations due to the formation of the Satpura basin The Perturb bation of the thermal equilibrium, produced by subsidence and sedimentation in the earth's outer layers is investigated by means of two models. Read More...

  • The Rift valleys of the Pachmarhi are tectonic land forms elongated depressions whose origins are primarily tectonic, not erosional. Tectonic forms fault scarps monoclinal scarps are introduced into the Pachmarhi and, until eroded, are easily recognizable. Read More...

  • To understand the Pachmarhi geological stage and its structure, an analytical method is derived, which gives the elastic response of a homogeneous rock layer to two-dimensional distributions of vertical displacement applied along its loner boundary. Read More...

  • This paper presents an introduction to the theory of folding of stratified viscoelastic media under compression and discusses its significance in the context of tectonics and orogenesis. Simplified derivations are given for results obtained earlier by the writer as particular cases of more elaborate theories. Read More...

  • In order to explain the Morphological development of the Pachmarhis, it is useful to establish a model against which the present landscape surface can be compared. Since this up warp occurs in an area, whose planation surfaces have been warped Read More...

  • Abstract-Extending the work of E. M. Anderson, M. K. Hubb ert, and W. Hafner on faulting, the author develop the Hypoth esis that anticlinal folds, thrust faults, and wrench faults can be generated as a result of movement on a large wrench fault such as the Pachmarhi of this concept leads to the conclusion that for any given tectonic area, at least eight directions of wrench faulting and four directions of anticlinal folding and/or thrusting should accommodate the structural elements of that region; these directions should have a more or less symmetrical disposition relative to the direction of the primary compressive stress. Read More...

  • Factors governing the development of wellcharacterized metamorphic zones in orogenic belts, showing moderate to high-pressure regional metamorphism are considered. Features recorded in the rocks concerning: variations of temperature with pressure (both across metamorphic belts and in single rocks), ages of metamorphism and uplift history, are compared with those predicted by the elegant quantitative thermal models of Richardson, England and co-workers. Read More...

  • Chemical characteristics of Deccan basalts, like other continental flood basalts, indicate them to be relatively evolved magmas. Recognition of Deccan basalt as a derivative magma has given rise to speculations regarding the nature of primary magma and its source. Read More...

  • The Drainage system of the Pachmarhis (Crookshank,H,1936, Dongre.N.L.1997,2013) is the most conspicuous one is the high Basalt land scape. Read More...

  • The market in Narayanpur (Bastar) District, Chhattisgarh, India, is analysed from the point of view of its cultural and economic significance as a reflection of social relations in the area. The groups present in Bastar interact in the market more regularly than they do in any other context. Read More...

  • The activity of bedrock-channel incision on the evolution of mountainous topography is a central concept in geomorphology (e.g., Seidl and Dietrich, 1992; Burbank et al., 1996). Considerable attention to rivers incising bedrock in tectonically active landscapes (e.g., Whipple and Tucker, 1999) has led to the use of river morphology in interpreting the scale, magnitude, and timing of rock uplift, for which other evidence is often sparse or equivocal (e.g., Lave´ and Avouac, 2001; Finlayson et al., 2002; Kirby et al., 2003). Read More...

  • Transformation of channel at a River confluence is deduced by replacing the hydraulic geometry relationships into the continuity equation of flow. Read More...

  • Geopolitics is defined as the operating system of a government’s foreign policy that evaluates places beyond its boundaries. Such systems involve evaluation of places beyond the state’s boundaries in terms of its strategic importance and potential threats. It operates at three levels: local, regional and Global. The local level system involves evaluation of neighboring states. The regional level system is required for states that intend to exhibit their powers beyond their neighbors. Read More...

  • The prime theme of this article is consumption as a form of life style. Consumption goods are not merely good edibles but are objects made more or less desirable by the role they play in daily needs Read More...

  • Branching river networks are one of the well-known and recognized features of Earth's landscapes and have also been discovered in the Solar System [1, 2] but the mechanisms that create these patterns and control their spatial scales are rarely understood Read More...

  • In the river networks, branching systems are a basic geomorphic component. Study of drainage patterns rests largely on junction angles (Zernitz 1932). Inspite of early acceptance of regularities in river branching angles (Playfair 1802) and the importance of angles in understanding the situation of drainage networks, very little theoretical work has been done on this topic. Read More...

  • Due to the importance of the process of piracy or capture, in the creation of stream networks in Pachmarhis (India) is tough to evaluate by field or map or field observations. An indirect approach through Pachmarhis is used in this article to investigate capture, with the use of a Pachmarhis model involving capture within rectangular stream networks on a square matrix. Read More...

  • However, body-concepts need to be articulated in conjunction with the spatially embedded process of incorporation, including the actual sensuous interpellations and practices by which the malleability of bodies is turned into the relative firmness of posture and flesh. Lefebvre's account of social space as power-laden and historico-geographically specific revolves around a usually overlooked notion of "formants" (1991: 285-91) that deeply implicate the body and the senses . Read More...

  • Religious phenomena are an important branch of cultural land scape of geography, though its theoretical aspects remain un discussed. Geographers may become more cautious of other approaches to the learning of religion. Whereas phenomenological awareness of the deepness of the religious quest in the human psyche is important, geographers are primarily concerned with religion's societal expression and hence will gain valuable insights through the adoption of an historical materialist approach to the study of religious institutions in class society. Read More...

  • This paper exhibits the relation between the structure of river networks and the features of their geomorphologic importance. The mathematical formulation and connectivity of a drainage network is the subject to relate contributing areas and the network geometry. Read More...

  • In 1863 the New Zealand Southern Monthly Magazine expressed its enthusiasm for Darwin's theory of evolution. Darwinism, so the magazine's readers were told, had cast new light on the process of colonization by showing how a "weak and ill-furnished race" necessarily had "to give way before one which is strong and highly endowed" (quoted in Stenhouse 1999: 83). Darwinism, evidently, suited to perfection the needs of New Zealand imperialists. It enabled the Maori to be represented in the language of savagery and thus to provide scientific legitimacy for the land-hungry settlers who welcomed the prospect of Maori extinction. Read More...

  • Inserting Religion in Geographical Analyses Race, class, and gender generally are accepted as the primary axes of analyses across those disciplines concerned with understanding society. Read More...

  • Abstract. Light is fundamental to religious experience, and its symbolism pervades the geography of sacred landscapes. As sun, fire, ray, color, or attribute of being and place, light serves as a bridge between interpretation of landscape and religious experience. To see the light cast upon places orients believers in otherwise undifferentiated space, grounding them in context of home. As sacred places are created, an inner light outweighs outer darkness, and a spiritual journey commences. Read More...

  • The reflections of energy dissipation on channel behaviors of a river system are investigated. On the basis of local and global opinions of optimality in energy expenses, it is investigated that the relationships between channel geometry, flow velocity, channel bed slope, and stream flow conditions in optimal river systems. Expressions for the rate of energy dissipation per unit channel area are derived as functions of cumulative drainage area and river network parameters. Optimal channel characteristics are developed that satisfy the opinions of local optimality, and provide constant throughout the river network. Read More...

  • The coastlines are composed of about 80% of rocky coasts. These coasts are composed of either consolidated or unconsolidated rocks such as clay (Collins and Sitar, 2008). It is important to be able to predict cliff recession rate as a function of the local forcing parameters and the different underlying physical mechanisms should be understood. Read More...

  • The concept of race has had a powerful effect on Indian scholars and academics. But that is not to say that the idea of race is unique to contemporary India. Indeed, there are ideas of difference, generalised to describe whole communities that are to be found in a variety of ancient Indian texts. Read More...

  • The evolution of bandritic, hierarchical rivers drainage networks are the responses of physical systems to the transport of fluids, substances dissolved in fluids or charge. Such directed networks are efficient transport systems and they have characteristic statistical properties [Banavar, J. R., Maritan, A. and Rinaldo, A. 1999]. It has been postulated that river networks and the landscapes associated with them Read More...

  • The understanding of the long term dynamics of the Earth's topography is based mainly on the results of theoretical analysis and numerical models [Braun and Sam-bridge, 1997; Davy and Crave, 2000; Howard et al., 1994; Kirkby, 1971; Kooi and Beaumont, 1996; Willgoose et al., 1991b], for which few constraints exist to validate the macroscopic evolution, and the characteristics of simulated topographies. Read More...

  • Industrial or domestic Water pollution from human originated activities is a burning problem in so many countries [Tchobanoglous, G. Burton F.L. 1991]. As a result of water pollution, approximately 25 million persons die every year. Developing models to enable to understand how to control and predict water quality is of crucial interest. When assessing the quality of water in a river, there are many factors to be considered: the level of dissolved oxygen; the presence of nitrates, chlorides, phosphates; the level of suspended solids; environmental hormones; chemical oxygen demand, Read More...

  • The main results of the work is presented here, concerning the deterministic model for the river channel formation introduced by A.C. Fowler, N. Kopteva and C. Oakley (2007), Diaz, J.I. Fowler, A. C. Mufioz, A. I and Schiavi, E. (2008) The ingredients of a model are variables describing channel flow and sediment transport, and the mechanism of channel formation arises through an instability, in which locally Read More...

  • The Pachmarhis region of Satpura is an area of active continental shortening. In the previous study of the area, described a series of mountain systems and the associated drainage patterns. By predicting the effect of tectonic activity on drainage patterns, and comparing these with observed patterns, have attempted to constrain the dynamics of fold growth and propagation and, ultimately, the tectonic history of the region Read More...

  • The Bhils are so-called aboriginals of India. This is all that is known about their ancestry. Once they were regarded as Dravidians, closely related to the Gonds. But this opinion has been discarded. The physiognomy and the nature of the Bhils and those of the Dravidians differ too much to allow us to place them in the same racial fold. Read More...

  • Bedrock river channels play an important role in active landscapes: fluvial processes drive erosion by undercutting hill slopes and evacuating the products of mass wasting to depositional basins [Whipple,2004].Fluvial erosion rates and the channel's ability to transport sediment are strongly dependent on the channel geometry, namely, its bed slope and cross-sectional shape. Read More...

  • The idea of 'indigenous people' is an issue of considerable contention in India today. This was hardly so till a few years ago. In fact, social workers, administrators, politicians and even scholars widely used the term to refer to a certain category of people. They hardly felt any unease in the use of native equivalent of this term, viz. "adivasi'. Ghurye had of course some reservation to the use of such terms: the expression he used was 'so-called aborigines'. Read More...

  • “ Cherishing the spirits of all creatures, with whom we are always interconnected, especially honoring the spirits of our departed loved ones, who have not really “died” but continue to live in the subtler planes of light”. Read More...

  • The Bell Metal or Dhokra is one of the earliest methods of metal casting which date back to pre-historic time. This is an excellent piece of Metal Casted image of Gond King of Chhatisgarh Read More...

  • There are more than 400 groups in Indian society which are officially designated as scheduled tribes. These groups have all been undergoing changes. These changes have been observed and described by a variety of persons for nearly 100 years, but their consequences and implications have been seriously misconstrued. The conventional wisdom among anthropologists has been that when a tribe undergoes change through a loss of isolation and through close integration with the wider society, sooner or later, and with unfailing regularity, it becomes a caste. While this may have been true to a greater or lesser extent till the forties, the argument is no longer valid. Read More...
