Krishna occupies a unique place in Indian history and tradition. Hindus have accepted him as an incarnation of God, but keeping in view the sprit of present scientific age people want to know if he really existed. The European scholars put a big question mark on his existence and gave a preconceived view that he is a myth. Apart from this the British Sanskritists, due to their superior views about themselves, had developed the idea that the much of the Vedic beliefs, practices and legends have been incorporated from Bible and the stories of Jesus.
