The famous Painter of the Himalayas, Nicholas Roerich, who lived in Darjeeling in1924-25 and in 1928-29 gave his name to the Roerich Pact. Known as the Red Cross of Culture - is an International Treaty signed in Washington DC in 1935, by President Roosevelt and many other countries, like later India in 1948.
The Pact signed the necessity for protection of the cultural creativity of humanity - during war and peace - and prescribed the method by which all sites of cultural value would be declared neutral and protected.
