The painter renders here one of the best loved and also one of the frequently glossed over episodes from the event filled life of young Krishna
. The gopis have come for a bath in the Yamuna. Here, they leave their garments on the bank and enter the waters naked, sporting merrily. Krishna follows them and finding their garments lying on the bank, gathers them and climbs the kadamba tree that is near by. When the gopis realize this, they beg him to return their garments and to go away. But the clever Krishna asks them to come out of the water and claim their clothes. At this there is nervousness, abashment, even simulated anger. They cajole and entreat, but Krishna is unyielding.

The artist simply delights in rendering the scene of Vastraharan lila in a frank, earthy way. It is the climactic moment of the episode that he presents, with Krishna high up in the tree, tantalizingly holding out a colorful garment in his hand and with the gopis going through a whole range of emotions and thoughts. These are thirteen gopis and each seems to be responding differently to this unexpected situation. These are those who have dared to come out of the water completely and one among them who hides behind the trunk of the tree, another who raises a wondering finger to her lips and one who while standing, bends her body modestly and attempts to cover herself with one hand. These are some gopis who have stayed in the river.

Dominating the scene is the superbly rendered Kadamba tree standing in the middle, with Krishna half-concealed in its branches and colorful garments hanging everywhere.

The background is flat, dull green and the water is dark with thin gray lines of uneven thickness making a fine pattern of waves and whirlpool. Especially attractive is the glowing bluish gray of the tree trunk. This painting has a rare verve and drama.

IAs a serious student and teacher of Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣad and Jyotiṣa I have found you have some good editions of English with sanskrit texts. Having texts of high quality with both is essential.   This has been a user friendly experience
