There would be more violent and more frequent clashes of warm moist air from the Indian Ocean and dry cold air from Siberia / North Asia.
Thats the first thing that came to mind, I was thinking massive storms developing year round in Central Asia where the two air masses meet. Central Asia would be wetter, less arid and more moist and more moderate temperature wise.
But without the Himalayas the monsoon may no longer occur East Asia = No monsoon

India will be far more colder in the winter for starters.

New Delhi will have colder winters. The highs will average at around 13C as instead of 20C. Nights would dip below 0C.
