I am always intrigued by the might of the mountains and my passion drove me eventually to the study of orogenic belts. Orogenic belts with towering peaks similar to what we see in the modern day Himalayas also existed long back in the Earth’s history that are now lying as eroded mountain belts surrounding the cratonic blocks of India. I was trained so far in tracing the history from “microscope to mountain belts” using the tools of metamorphic petrology (texture, chemistry and more robust pseudosection analysis). A substantial exposure to geochronology opened my vision about the complexity of the crustal processes wherein the knowledge of so many important branches of earth science merges. I understood the necessity of scientific research in a holistic approach assembling key members from different earth science communities.
