Hollywood superstardom, of course it overshadows

23 September 2009

In the making of Eat, Pray, Love the movie, Julia Roberts is upsetting the locals in India where she is shooting. We have become so ethnocentric, no, we have become so famouscentric that anything to do with the media and movies and money, overshadows the real world. The issue is that it is currently some scenes are being filmed inside a Hindu temple during the festival of Navratri, a very important 9 day long Hinduism religious festival worshiping the Goddess Durga. And what’s ironic, or perhaps not so in our famouscentric world, is that the book Eat, Pray, Love is a story of a woman who is quite the opposite of this alleged inconsiderate behavior. I can’t say I’m surprised though.
