Lol, yes, although Ganesha, like the Egyptian gods, is more a human with an animal head.

Haha, true. Personally, I like Ganesh and Hanuman! Its weird when you're in India and see all these religions co existing side by side. I kind of just took the good from all religions and just focused on those aspects.

Yes, I guess you can admire what they represent. Even like Kali or Shiva as destroyers have their role in the grand scheme of things (symbolically).

Riled up? I don't remember that. I don't know what "buddy" you are refering to. I don't know the genetics you are referring to, but Assamese people have a lot of genetic influence from SE Asia. I don't know how important that is, since genetics and culture don't correspond all that much.

Sure, I guess it varies from place to place but many places do exist in relative peace. Foreign support for terrorism is pretty much an open secret. As a result, their primary objective is to destabilize India by targeting those relations.

Genetics? I was refering to the Aryans. Do Assamese look Aryan to you. I have a bunch of friends from Assam and Nagaland. Hell, I even had a Driver's license from Dimapur!

So Mistertee, some months back you claimed that you were an Indian Jew during some debate with a Pakistani guy(mintgum84?), recently you have stated that you were half Indian/half Jewish, you sure as hell don't talk like any Jew or Indian that I know(and I know plenty! Giving your stamp of approval to someone who collaborated with the Nazis was particularly rich), and you are also doing a fair share of talking out of your ass.

Something tells me that you're full of ****, lol.

Assamese, Nagas, Manipuris.etc are more akin to East Asians than other Indians.

Yeah, except Assamese look more like other north Indians, and their language is Indo-European. The Assamese language is the farthest east of all the Indo-European languages. Nagas, Manipuris etc. look a lot more like SE Asian people and their language is not Indo-European.
