There are many untold stories about the sacred love of Krishna and Radha. The story which I’m going to narrate today, here, has no mention in any of the scriptures or manuscripts, anywhere in the world. Neither is it readable on the net. To read and understand this story, one needs to understand the true character of Krishna very closely and believingly. This story is also an eye opener for people who misunderstand Krishna to be a characterless personality.
As we all know, Krishna and Radha were playing the roles of both humans and Gods but in my story they have been presented as humans. This story represents some cowboys and cowgirls. They were in Vrindavan. They played, danced and exchanged love songs and music. Radha, although she sang beautifully, she could not beat Krishna. He played the flute and mesmerized everyone. Such was its effect that the entire world would merge into it, to the extent that many girls were ready to would give up their life to marry Krishna. But Krishna loved only Radha who was 10 years elder to him in age. Even Radha loved Krishna dearly and longed for the day when she would get married to his prince charming, Krishna.
However, pure love is always misinterpreted by the world and this is what happened in this case. Krishna got really agitated when some people spoke ill about his interactions with Radha and the other girls with whom he sang and danced in joy. He wanted to leave everything and depart but his strong love for Radha stopped him from leaving Vrindavan. However, Radha was always scared that one day Krishna would leave her and go away, hence she wanted to marry him as soon as possible but that too was not possible because Krishna was just a young boy then. Hence they planned to get married secretly and not reveal this truth to anyone.
Krishna had previously told Radha that he was a king, and that he would love to build a palace and serve the poor, but one day, revealing the truth to her, he said to her that he was no king. Radha was very disappointed, not because he was not rich but because he had lied to her. She was so annoyed with him that she told him to go away from her life.
In the meanwhile, Krishna was invited by Kansa to Mathura. The former decided to go there never to come back again.Yashodha, Krishna’s mother, pleaded him with tears in her eyes but Krishna’s decision was irrevocable. As for Radha, the latter asked her to bid him adieu with a last final kiss on his forehead before leaving Gokul. Radha came to wish Krishna farewell till he vanished from before her eyes. Although Radha’s anger was momentary, Krishna never returned to Vrindavan after that.
