1) My Kanha is son of Nanda Maharaja, while Sri Radhe is the beloved daughter of Maharaja Vrsabhanu.

 

2) Kanha always wants to take butter, while Radha enjoys sweets.

 

3) Krsna plays in the courtyard of Nanda Maharaja, while Radha plays in the meadows.

 

4) The entire community of Vraja is thirsty to see the naughty cowherd boy Krsna, and the beloved bud of the flower, Kisori Radhe.
