The Game of Hide & Seek


The cowherd boys and girls are playing the game of hide-and-seek, on the outskirts of the village. Radha has hidden herself in a clump of bushes. Krishna discovers her, and makes use of the opportunity for love-making.

dou chora milichani
khelu na kheli aghata
durata hiyain laptai kai
chhuvata hiyain laptata

"Playing the game of hide-and-seek,
the two are not satisfied with its pleasures.
When one seeks the other,
they cling to each other in a warm embrace."

Bihari Sat Sai
