      Dear Jim, Robert and friends,

      this is interesting. In fact, Cambodia does sound close to Kamboja.
      Kampuchea, an old name for Cambodia, sounds even closer.

      Although it is not impossible for ancient Indians to come into
      contact with other people, it is amazing how well the understanding
      of the world was during Buddha's time, as it covers a good portion of
      South Asia.

      On another webpage it said that Cambodia is named after the ancient
      Kamboja country. Kandahar in Afghanistan makes me think that this
      name might be a linguistic variant of Gandhaara.
