It is a part of Vaishnava ritual that devotees offer betel leaves to the deity. Here Radha is offering the same to Krishna as a token of her affection. Radha and Krishna are shown luxuriating in each other's elegance, a certain ineffable tenderness characterizing their gestures and movements. Their love is gentle rather than brusque and we see a blend of romantic sensuality and loving innocence. No, Krishna doesn't seem interested in the betel leaves that Radha so lovingly offers, he wants Radha herself. He extends his left arm to pull her closer and the right hand holds the flute that he often plays to charm her and the gopis. There is sensuality in their body language and elegance in their attire and ornaments.
The artist has placed Radha and Krishna on lotus pedestals and given them both a divine aura.
The artist paints a luxuriant tree on the right but takes a distant perspective on the left, including the cowherd's cows but not so prominently.
