Yes, it is, but there is a difference because when we refer with respect to latitudes then it resides in the Northen hemisphere and when we refer with respect to longitude then it resides in the Eastern hemisphere. I hope you got your answer. Thanks.

Yes. I too think Chetan is right. You should add East hemisphere also. Else leaner will not have any idea of the west east hemisphere concept. Also if you an add photos in your slides (like when we say of northern hemisphere or showing time meridian of india) it will be of great help!
Thanks a lot for preparing these videos. Kindly continue and complete the entire Geography syllabus for CHSL. Also, I had a doubt. Which is the highest waterfall in India?
