Damar would be in Northern "India"; the Northerners are stuck in the
Himalayas, which I suggest explains a lot about them (cf. my Timeline). I
think the Blue Sword gives us some other D-- name to describe the whole land
that Home has conquered, of which Damar is the northern obstreporous province.
And I'd hope India has orange groves. And the Damarians have the right
coloration for Indians.

Finding a resemblance between the cultures is another problem entirely. But
then, Tibetans and Nepalese hardly resemble demons with optional numbers of
limbs riding carnivorous horses.
