Oh, he is definitely a Hindu. You might have noticed that he swears by Brahma, who is a Hindu god.

As for the landscape, there are some pretty dry places in India, no doubt, but you can't say the whole country is dry. There is Mawsynram, which averages the world's highest rainfall and of course, the Himalayas where temperatures can drop to -40 degree Celsius. On the other side, we have the Thar desert where temperatures rise to 50 degree Celsius and Southern India has basically tropical climate. So, not dry.

I would say Gaipajama is in North-West India about 200-300 km roundabout New Delhi. (given that he reached India from Arabia so quickly(which is a miracle enough) it would hardly be feasible that he went all the way to south-India.

Now, please excuse me. I have my school annuals coming up, and I got to study for it(they should ban the whole exam thing, I believe).

The Thom(p)sons had worn the Greek costumes by mistake in Destination Moon. I think Syldavia was supposed to be a Balkan country along with neighbouring Borduria.
