Does 'hare' in 'Hare Krishna' sound like 'green Krishna' to Indians?

Somebody once told me the meaning was हर है कृष्ण (everybody is Krishna). I'm not sure if that's true or not, but it certainly sounded more plausible than 'green krishna' :P

It doesn't come either from the word for green or the word हर (which is actually a Persian borrowing). It most probably comes from हरि which is another name of the Hindu god Vishnu. The vocative form of the word in Sanskrit would be हरे. According to some interpretations, it may also refer to Radha, Krishna's consort.

Why not "The ripe/raw banana is green


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vinay92

'Raw' is कच्चा and 'ripe' is पक्का.
कच्चे केले हरे होते हैं। पक्के केले पीले होते हैं। (Raw bananas are green. Ripe bananas are yellow).
