Indian International Film Festival Misinforming Buddha Birthplace

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 23, 2012


In an Indian International Film Festival in Florida, Tampa Bay, USA from Feb 15-17, 2013 the organizer is going to show 36 minutes video documentary about the Buddha Birth Place claiming that Buddha was born in Orrisa, India. Buddha is synonym to truthfulness. Sometimes artists, sometimes writers and even sometimes diplomats are raising unnecessary issues threatening neighbors’ sovereignty. In the 21st century we must be civilized and not like in Stone Age. We must respect others’ identity. Even to protect truthfulness we must raise our voice to stop that film show.

    how this historians have been researching about buddhas life?we called little knowledge is dangerous. is the saying exists for historians? without deep knowledge and total research, how india is going to prove that buddha was born in india but not in nepal? buddha is considered as the light of asia and his spiritual knowledge is valuable for the modern world. lets not fight against the matter of birth place but it will be fruitful to reveal the buddhas knowledge together to make the world peaceful.

    Everyone has right to know the TRUTH!!! 

    We’ve to STOP spreading the rumors keeping dark to 7 billion people of this world in an illusion and delusion! 

    Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.

    A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

  • Hari Deuja Somethingis wrong here! Either I’m emotionally breaking or…? I click in the link above provided by Ram Kumar Jee, which takes me to the post which I shared with some ‘harsh’ comment agianst Indian Embassy?
  • Ram Kumar Shrestha Yes sister, that’s why this Movement issue is not only the issue of these two countries but also the Global issue because of the question of human right. Every year thousands of world tourists are taken or gone in wrong place, however; they want to go in the right place and they think they are going in the right place because of the misinformation that already took Global form
  • Laxmi Tamang I posted above information on 25 October in an Indian Embassy to Kathmandu facebook. BUT nothing they’ve response. In Florida, Tampa Bay , USA from Feb 15-17, 2013 there will be an Indian International Film Festival in which they are going to broadcast 36 minutes video documentary about the Birth Place of Buddha claiming that Buddha was born in Orrisa,

    What a Joke of Indian film makers, scholars, diplomats and government to fool, bull and rule over innocent people’s mind for their own sake of benefit BUT truth never ever going to hide. Anyhow one day it will prevail so instead of spreading the rumor better to shut up mouth or speak up the truth. Wonder WHY Indian ill-minded scholars and diplomats always like to lie to the world and want to keep in dark. It might be to promote pilgrimage tourism to make India economically prosperous cheating their tiny neighboring country or clean their own face with purity/truth since their mythologies and the Law of Manu had ruined their image across the globe.

    “The Myth of Buddha’s Birthplace | India International Film Festival – Tampa Bay”

    Director: James Freeman
    Executive Producer: Annapurna Devi Pandey
    Co-Director: Karsten Freeman
    Running time: 35 mins

    ‘The Myth of the Buddha’s Birthplace,’ a thirty-six minute video documentary, follows anthropologists James M. Freeman and Annapurna Devi Pandey as they investigate a controversial claim about the true origin of the Buddha. Returning to Kapileswar, a small village in the state of Odisha, eastern India that Freeman first visited in 1962, Freeman and Pandey search for an ancient stone inscription, which was discovered in Kapileswar nearly a century ago but has since mysteriously vanished. This stone inscription, so it is said, proclaims Kapileswar to be the birthplace of the Buddha. This claim runs counter to all established theories, since Nepal is generally accepted to be the birthplace of the Buddha.

    In searching for the lost inscription, Freeman and Pandey make an unexpected and significant discovery. The villagers of Kapileswar have created a new myth about the Buddha’s birth and a new ritual based on this myth. ‘The Myth of the Buddha’s Birthplace’ shows how a modern myth has been created and answers the questions of the authenticity of the Kapileswar stone inscription and the credibility of the Kapileswar birthplace claim.

  • Laxmi Tamang Durgashyanbotamang Solu said that डिसीनेपाल डटकम संवाददाता – नेपालकै विद्यालयमा गौतम बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको र लुम्बिनी भारतमा पर्ने भन्दै पठनपाठन गराइएको खुलेको छ। गौतम बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको र लुम्बिनी भारतमा पर्ने मिथ्या लेखिएको पाठ्यपुस्तक ललितपुरको धोबीघाटस्थित डिएभी सुशील केडिया विश्व भारती उच्च माध्यमिक विद्यालयमा अध्यापन गराइएको हो।

    सो विद्यालयको कक्षा ६ को ‘इन्टि्रगेटेड सोसियल साइन्स’ विषयको पाठ्यपुस्तकमा समाविष्ट ‘ग्रोथ अफ न्यु आइडियाज’ शीर्षक पाठमा गौतम बुद्ध भारतीय भएको मिथ्या कुरा लेखिएको छ। सो पुस्तकको पृष्ठ ४५ मा २५ सय वर्षअघि भारतमा दुई महान हस्ती गौतम बुद्ध र महावीर जन्मिएको उल्लेख छ। पुस्तकमा लुम्बिनी भारतमा रहेको पनि भनिएको छ।

    सोही विद्यालयमा कक्षा २ मा पठनपाठन भइरहेको ‘माई बिग बुक सोसियल स्टडिज’ विषयको पाठ्यपुस्तकमा पनि ‘हामीहरूको महान् मुलुक भारत भएको, राष्ट्रिय झन्डा तिरंगा, राष्ट्रिय गान जन गन मन…, राष्ट्रिय जनावर बाघ’ लगायतका कुरा उल्लेख छन्। अखिल नेपाल शिक्षक संगठनका अध्यक्ष गुणराज लोहनीले भारतीय राष्ट्रियताको पाठ्यपुस्तक नेपालमा प्रयोग गर्नु आपत्तिजनक रहेको बताए। ‘राष्ट्रियताविरोधी विद्यालयको स्वीकृति नै खारेज गर्नुपर्छ,’ शुक्रबार सञ्चारकर्मीसँग उनले भने, ‘यसले नेपाली बालबालिकालाई भ्रम सिर्जना गरेको छ।’
    लोहनीले भारतीय राष्ट्रियताका पाठ्यपुस्तक अध्यापन गराएर सो विद्यालयले नेपालीको स्वाभिमान र राष्ट्रियतामाथि सीधा धावा बोल्न खोजेको आरोपसमेत लगाए। उनले भने, ‘पाठ्यपुस्तक स्वीकृति गर्ने निकायको लाचारीपन प्रस्ट देखिन्छ।’

    सो विद्यालयबाट हालै निष्कासनमा परेका शिक्षक सागर थापाले आफूहरूबाट उठाएको आयकर र सामाजिक सुरक्षा करलाई विद्यालयले आन्तरिक राजस्व कार्यालयमा हालसम्म नबुझाएको पनि खुलासा गरेका छन्। उनले नेपाल सरकारसित स्वीकृतिविना भारतको ‘सिबिएसई’ र ‘आइसिएसई’बाट सम्बन्धन लिई सो विद्यालयले शैक्षिक कार्यक्रम सञ्चालन गरेको पनि जानकारी दिए।

    शिक्षा मन्त्रालयका सहायक प्रवक्ता रोजनाथ पाण्डेले केन्द्रीय विद्यालयबाहेक भारतीय सिबिएसई कोर्स पढाउने विद्यालय सबै अवैध रहेको बताए। कसैले उजुरी गरेमा भ्रम सिर्जना हुने पाठ्यक्रम पढाउने डिएभी सुशील केडिया विद्यालयलाई कारबाही गर्ने उनको भनाइ छ। त्यस्ता अवैध गतिविधि गर्ने विद्यालयलाई कारबाही गर्न सबै निकायको सक्रिय सहभागिताको आवश्यकता रहेको पनि उनले बताए।
