A peculiar question comes to my mindSince my childhood I am very weak in Geography. I was afraid of this subject; especially Physical Geography was a terror for me. Moreover, our Geography teacher was almost a 'terrorist' for weak students like me. However, I must admit that I got unexpectedly good marks in Geography in the Xth Board examination due to our Geography teacher's '90% suggestion'. I will discuss that later.
Due to my terrible relationship with Geography and Geography teacher, I did not dare to ask any question in Geography class. There were some questions in my mind (related to Geography), most of which have remained unanswered. I want to ask one such question.
All of us know that Indian maritime boundary is formed by the Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea. The Bay of Bengal is in the eastern side of our maritime boundary, whereas Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea man the southern side and western side of the maritime boundary of India, respectively, respectively.
But my question is: How do we differentiate the Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea? How do we understand that the Bay of Bengal ends at this point and Indian Ocean starts from this particular place? Similarly, how can we demarcate the border between Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea?
Can any Member explain the matter to me in layman's language?
