In my last post I mentioned the similarities between the lightning & thunder gods of Greek and Indian mythology. Now I have noticed another similarity between the both, it was the similarity between Perseus and Krishna. Perseus is the son of Zeus born mainly to kill his grandfather, Krishna is an Avatar of Lord Vishnu to kill his maternal uncle (Kans). They both were born in the jail. They both met a lot of trouble during their childhood. Perseus grew as a fisherman, Krishna grew as a cowboy. They also controlled a water monster as a part of their work, Perseus controlled kraken while Krishna controlled kaalinga and many other monsters. This makes us to think that on what basis the people’s thought arises. I am still wondering about it.
