Krishna is the amalgam of both the divine and the human. His life, from childhod to his last days has been a source of perennial inspiration to the poets and the artists. He is considered the embodiment of intellectual and spiritual glory.

As a child, Krishna was a wonderful child, an object of love and affection to all. His childish pranks with Balrama delighted the hearts of the villagers. In this picture, Krishna is being given a ceremonial bath, a ritual he is forced to participate in, demonstrated by Krishna's tight-fisted right arm pulled back in rebellion and a gentle tug of Yashodhra's arm and her firm hold of Krishna. She looks lovingly at him as she does the needful. A maid holds Balrama in her arms as he waits patiently for his turn to be bathed. The maids, all involved in the activity, are well dressed and well adorned. It is quite evident that they adore the child and are talking about him in hushed tones. The peahens strutting in the foreground lend movement to the picture.

The foliage in the background is dense and the sun peeking from behind the trees indicates that it is early in the morning that this ritual is taking place. The clothings of the women gave the artist a lot of scope to display the fall of their skirts folds, the texture and the color combination of the garments and he seems to have made the best use of the opportunity.

Not only is the painting a visual delight but a pictorial story, one of the many tales of Krishna's childhood.
