India is certainly the only nation on the face of earth where diversity is not only limited to the culture. Different terrains, rivers, vegetation, weather conditions, and many more that are a proof our nation is the land of great diversities when we look through any random bit and piece. When the sun is in its full fury to shower heat down on the human beings in states like M.P, A.P, and Rajasthan, you can sense chills of cool air passing through your hair, kissing gently on your cheeks and neck in the northeastern states and letting you know the presence of diversity in weather.
This diversity is so deep rooted that terrains we share with our families, neighbors, and society we live in are so different from our neighboring states, or for that matter, neighboring districts, that temperature and the entire landscape starts changing completely while showing new colors as shades of nature. This geographical diversity is so amazing and real that it has a direct and deep impact on us, biologically or morphologically.
As we start moving up in the Himalayas, new colors and landscapes start unfolding right in front of our eyes. And, this miracle hits the peak point as soon as we enter the states of mountains and rivers like Himachal Pradesh and J&K. These two states are environmentally so rich that calling them gifts of the Mother Nature would not be an overstatement. We take great pride in saying so because we have received this gift from her firsthand. And you will also agree with what we say after looking at these six priceless marvels the Mother Nature has bestowed us with.
