“Smara-garala-khandanam, mama sirasi mandanam, dehi pada-pallavam udaram” Meaning- “Your feet as beautiful as the flowers heal the heart from the poison of passionate love. They extinguish the raging fire of love that resides in my heart. Thus, please be kind and let your feet adorn my head.” When poet Jaidev imagined Krishna saying this to Radha, he could not bring himself to write such a thing. Shocked by his own thoughts, he went to take a dip in the river Padmavati to clear his head. On returning, he found that Krishna himself added this very verse to his work, which came to be known as Gita- Govind, the Song of Govind or Krishna.

Bordered by a marble jharokha-shaped frame, the scene in this watercolour Rajput miniature is a representation of Krishna’s adoration for Radha. Krishna-Radha paintings are commonplace in Rajput art, where they serve as the divine model for human love. Sitting in her courtyard surrounded by a lotus-covered water body, Radha looks exquisite in her red attire and pearl jewellery. Her face is turned away from an almost prostrated Krishna, who has come to her with an offering of lotus flowers. Another female figure, Radha’s attendant acts as a mediator, talking to Krishna on her behalf. Intricate designs on the carpet, flowers blossoming in the tree and the bushes in the background, dark waters and lotuses sprouting out of it and the lush green hills at the back add a naturalistic magnificence to the painting.
