Coming from detailed investigation of van Hinsbergen et al. [1] about two-stage Cenozoic collision between India and Asia, the author presents proof that such collision is possible only by action of tidal forces. Considering tidal torque 1022Nm, this torque can move lithospheric plate as far as the plate exceeds equator and if subduction zone is in front of it. Moving Gondwana southward had subduction zone on south but created subduction zone in Cenozoic in Laurasia or later in Asia on north, had created reversed plate movement northward and pushed extinct mid-ocean ridge to component of Himalayan Mountain Belt.
