Nanda asking Radha to escort Krishna home
The theme of this miniature painting is taken from Jayadeva’s Gita Govinda which deals with the sublime passion of love in all its variety. Nanda asks Radha to escort the young Krishna who looks apprehensively at the dark wood, to his home. Radha obeys him with folded hands. But when they reach the interior of the forest, their roles are reversed. Here the nervous little boy becomes the passionate lover to whom Radha submits herself willingly. In this Pahari miniature painting we see a splendid example of Kangra art.
