There was a huge controversy lately on the movie "Chadni Chowk to China", where it was mentioned that "LORD GAUTAM BUDDHA" was born in India. I was just wondering if how many people here in mylot knows about the birth place of "LORD GAUTAM BUDDHA".? You can feel free to share what you know and I also would like to share what I know about it.

lord buddha was born in lumbini his real name is siddhartha he was born to a very rich father but once a sage told his father that buddha will bring peace to the world and he will become a very known sage.so his father kept him aside from the world he was only kept in the palace and never taken outside once while journying the town for the first time he saw that the people were facing so much misery and they were facing so many problems so he decided to leave the worldy desires and live in the forest for his life.while travelling from place to place he came to india and under a bodhi tree he got something i forgot the term this much i know i odnt if its right or wrong please tell me.

Hello dillu!!! During the birth of Lord Buddha, there was no country like Nepal and India. Instead it was divided into many small states which had their own kings. And among them Kapilvastu is the one. Kapilvastu, lies in Lumbini, and Lumbini lies in Nepal. And therefore, it was the big mistake done by Chadni Chowk to china telling that Buddha was born in India. And so the film is banned in Nepal. Bollywood business is well flourished in Nepal, and with that mistake, Chadni Chowk to China, had to bear the great loss. Happy mylotting...

Buddha was born in Lumbini Gardens as his mother was on her way to her paternal home. This Lumbini Gardens is supposed to have been in the outskirts of KapilavAstu, in today's Nepal. The film would have called it India because, today's geographical borders had no meaning in those days when there were no visa or passports required to move between nations.
