The beloved of all the milk-maids of Brij, tunes of whose flute were the solace of the beautiful ladies after a long day of work, Krishna and his love for Radha are one of those myths which are told and retold in texts and in oral traditions. Their love for each other has been beautifully highlighted in Geet Govind, a medieval period text. Through words, Geet Govind creates a serene picture of the romance of the divine couple, highlighting the humane side of our beloved gods. Krishna as a young lover, dances with his gopis, has lovers’ spat with Radha and their fights end poetically, with Krishna combing Radha’s hair, who has given up on all ornaments and makeup.
The brass comb here is a symbol of Krishna’s eternal love with Radha. The couple is intertwined in a deep embrace, while the gopis surround them, playing different musical instruments. The composite of gorgeous milk maidens in a variety of dancing postures suggests that it is a depiction of the Raas Leela. Place this brass comb in your home to ensure that your surroundings are filled with lively vibrations of Raas and you remain under the shade of the undying love of Radha-Krishna.
