It is not correct to say that the India and the Australian continent seated on a single rock plate called as the Indo-Australian plate.which is also said to be moving in the northeastern direction.
the researchers also has said that the India and the Australian continent was attached with the Antarctic continent before twenty million years.
(but now the distance between the India and the Australian continents is five thousand feet.)
but Antarctica is located eight thousand kilometer south of india,but two thousand and five hundred kilo meter south of the australian continent.
then how it is possible the two land masses can seated on a single rock plate all along the so called journey?with out tearing apart?.how the single rock plate moving in the northeastern direction at the same time the distance between the two land mass increased up to five thousand kilometers.
therfore it is not correct to say that the two land masses were once attached as one continent.scientist.g.ponmudi
