India was still moving northwards towards the Eurasian continent.


Towards the end of the Cretaceous Period of the Mesozoic Era and at the start of the Cenozoic Era, around 65 million years ago, the continents were beginning to develop a recognisable shape.

India had separated from Gondwana some 180 million years ago, and by this time it was still on its northward collision course with the Eurasian continent.
