Concept Note:
Radha-Krishna is one of the popular themes in the Reeti-Kal poetry. The legend of Krishna, as we know, has captured the imagination of Indian mind since time immemorial, but the antiquity of Radha is a disputed issue in the literary circle. Krishna as a myth was transformed gradually, with different concepts being added or subtracted occasionally; it mirrored many collective strands in the Hindu pantheon.
Radha is the creation of a genius poet and devotee of Krishna, Jayadeva. This 11th century Bengali Vaishnava who lived near Puri and worshipped Lord Jagannath, concretized Krishna-Bhakti in the fictional character Radha who expresses her longing for Krishna through explicit sexual imagery in his masterpiece Geet-Govinda. Geet-Govinda was recited and even enacted through dance form in the Jagannath Puri temple. The thousands of pilgrims from various parts of India who visited Puri every year got so enchanted with the idea of God as lover and the beautiful rhythm of Geet-Govinda that they carried it back to their native places and within a very short span of mere 100 years emerged the full fledged body of various regional literature, art and dance forms celebrating Radha Krishna love.
The Radha Krishna love became so popular that it over-shadowed all other historical and Puranic love/marriage couples including Rukhmini- Krishna which was actually a love marriage. Also sprang up many myths about Radha’s life in Gokul and her peculiar relationship with Krishna. According to one such myth she was married as child to a boy named Chandrasen (some call him Abhimanyu also) who was a Vishnu-Bhakt in his previous birth. He did penance to appease Lord Vishnu and as a boon asked Vishnu’s wife to become his wife. Yet another myth tells that Radha was Indra’s wife Shachi in her previous life, she fell in love with Vishnu and so asked a boon to become his wife in her next life. All these things attest to immense popularity of Radha Krishna love. But the question is why it became so popular? Why is it appealing to men and women across caste, class, region and even religion alike? The answer lies in the unique Indian ethos.
