TRANSLATION

Refrain: Friend, Radha, who is expert in water-pastimes, is now playing in Her own lake with Lord Krsna.

 

1) He struggles to steal Her garments. She strikes Him with a lotus flower.

 

2) By force He tightly embraces and kisses Her. She mercilessly splashes Him with cold water.

 

3) Overwhelmed with bliss, His eternal strength is lessened. She laughs at the pretended conquest of Her beloved.

This song is sung in Raga Dhanasri.
