In the year 1592, when men in power were still God fearing and honored their word, a sacred covenant between the Lepchas the indigenous people of Sikkim, and the Tibetan Bhutias was solemnized. This historical event took place near Gangtok, the present capital of Sikkim.
A bull was sacrificed to the Gods and an oath was sworn over its blood that the Lepchas and Bhutias would never fight and live as blood brothers in peace and harmony. Who ever broke the sacred oath THE LEGEND OF ZELDA SYMBOL Cover iPhone 8 would be cursed along with his descendents. From then on, on the 15th of every ninth month of the Tibetan calendar, the people of this region would make an offering of food and drink to their God to celebrate this sacred covenant. However the Tibetan rulers of the Sikkim could not keep their word for long and broke the sacred oath, inviting the wrath of the curse on themselves. The Namgyal dynasty that ruled over Sikkim from 1642 1975, came to an end on 16th May 1975 and Sikkim became the 22nd State of India.

He was a gentle and friendly man and would greet every third person on the road as we drove around the town. When TOKIDOKI DONUTELLA UNICORNO CIAO Cover iPhone 8 I commented on his popularity among the locals, his response was simple we do not know how long we are going to live, we might as well live with friendship and love while we are still alive !..
