Your father looks like you...

Swami Gulagulaananda asked:
"Is it possible for your father to look like you?"

I happened to read an article on today's newspaper that spoke about some film maker who said that he believed that Lord Krishna truly existed and walked the earth, and he was going to make a film based on it. He said that Lord Krishna was born in 3112 BC. BC clearly indicates before christ... The name of his movie is going to be "The Indian Jesus"... Sheesh! How can you make that kind of an error? It is exactly like telling someone that his father looks like him. You can tell him that he looks like his father. Similarly, you can perhaps call Jesus as the Western Krishna, but not the other way around, since Krishna comes earlier than Jesus chronologically... Of course, I feel he chose that name to make it more appealing to the Western community - But this kind of behaviour is something that I strongly denounce. I liked his idea of making a film about Krishna, but the name is something that I strongly dislike. This is not me saying it with a fanatic mindset, but more so in a logical sense [Making it clear before I see stupid comments :P]

It is a totally ridiculous name! Looks like he wants this movie to become very popular. And this is a real cheap way to do it.
