People make certain conventions and go by them. eg, donkey is dumb, fox is cunning, monkey is mischievous etc. by the same logic, Sardarjees are considered Buddhus.

The number of donkeys in the world continues to grow, as it has steadily throughout most of history. Some factors that today are contributing to this are increasing human population, progress in economic development and social stability in some poorer nations, conversion of forests to farm and range land, risi ...more
