Radha implores Krishna:

Leave my dress alone,
Dear love,
No wealth of passion
Is hidden by its knot.
Only today I heard
Of passionate joy
And do not know as yet
What joy it means.
Wherever I can
I shall search and search.
I shall ask my friends
If I have it in my home.
For once, O Madhava,
Listen to my words:
Aided by friends,
I shall look for this joy
And when I find it, bring it to you

                                                 -------Vidyapati
(circa 14th century)

Krishna here wants to introduce Radha to the joys of erotic love. But Radha is reluctant, though only playfully so. Her left hand is occupied with the pitcher of water she holds trucked under her, but the right still manages to deprive Krishna of his flute. Krishna impatient, and as if intoxicated with love, makes it clear that he will not take no for an answer and will definitely make love to her.

Such an episode is the first step in the intense love-making sessions Radha and Krishna indulge in. The heroine not wanting to yield easily makes a feeble protest even though her eyes and indeed her complete body stance betray the intense passion inflaming her body. Verily thus the artist has adorned her in a red sari, red being the color of passion. Often such 'beginnings' would culminate in no-holds barred rapturous moments of love. The same poet elaborates on such a happening:

In joyous words he spoke
Of the beauty of my face.
Thrilled, my body
Glowed and glowed.
My eyes that watched love spring
Were wet with joy.
In dream tonight
I met the king of honey...
He seized the end of my dress,
The strings broke loose
With all the weight of love.
My hands leapt to my breasts
But the petals of lotus could not hide
The mountains of gold.

('Mountains of gold' being the breasts, and 'petals of lotus,' being her hands)

This scroll painting has made in Orissa on pure Tussar silk.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
