    The topic itself is the name of a book written by Gen. J.F.C. Fuller. In early history mythological belief goes like "one who rule over the highest peak in the world will rule over the world."  Hindu mythology refers the Himalayas as "home of Lord Shiva", head of all Gods.  From time immemorial, the Himalayas serve as a natural barrier between India and other countries like China, Tibet, former Soviet union countries, and Afganistan. The Himalayas begin in Hindukush in Afganistan in the west and stretches upto mountains of Burma in the east. The main segments are Hindukush, Karakoram, Shivalik and Arakan.
    Major rivers in India and China originate in the Himalayas, which bring water and fertility all along their courses. Naturally, thick forests contribute to the climate.
    Three major countries surround the Himalayas, India, China and Russia. Gen.Fuller in his book says that if the three countries join hands, the destiny of the whole world will be ruled by them. But political, regional, religious constraints prevent them from clubbing hands.

    The author of "Himalayas-- Mountains of Destiny" has been wrongly noted as Gen.JFC Fuller. The error is regretted. Gen.JFC Fuller is the author of "Second World War".
