A hot cartoonbuddy penguin person of India history note maker.


Hello Buddy...  India has been a most interesting place to visit throughout your human history. Due to its geographical location the area has always been the hub of many visiting cultures, some of which have liked the place so much, that they have stayed there to evolve themselves.

To visit this huge crossroads of culture such as this land is, will also lead one to visit a junction of human faiths and religions that have formed within history, to now reflect almost every element that consists of your humans Great Test of Peace in Time. For here live the followers of the peace and faith texts that are, to list but a few, Hindu, Buddha, Islam, Sikh and Christianity.

It is strange though, that many human folk (such as the music group the Beatles) have travelled all the way to India, to find spiritual peace. Of course, if they had realised it, like the Key to peace, that particular element has always been within yourself, wherever you may live, you just have to discover it.

Welcome to my first short page of notes I hope that you find them interesting.
