Krishna and Radha

Holi is a festival for romance, mischief.

Young Lord Krishna was also naughty.   There is a story that Krishna complained to her mother Yashoda

Why he is so dark and Why a girl living in Village named Radha is so fair.

In a joke, Yashoda asked Krishna to go to Radha and color her face.  Krishna actually did it.

Since then there is tradition of playing holi with color.  Young men and women especially enjoy playing with color as they get opportunity to come close and touch cheeks.

People also use Radha Krishna idol and decorate with color.


Happy Sankranti
