SONG OF RADHA, THE MILKMAID , text and critical research by Mandira Chattopadhyaya Labels: Literary Critique I taken my curds to the Mathura fair¦ How softly the heifers were lowing¦ I needed to weep, “Who will buy The curds that is white-colored as the clouds in the sky When the sea breezes of Shravan are blowing?  Yet my heart was therefore full of your beauty, Dearest, They jeered as I cried without knowing: Govinda! Govinda! Govinda! Govinda! How softly the river was flowing! I carried the pots towards the Mathura tide¦ How gaily the rowing exercise machines were rowing! My comrades called, “Ho! Let us party, let us sing

And put on saffron apparel to meet the springtime. And pluck the new buds that are blowing.  Yet my cardiovascular system was thus full of your music, Beloved, They laughed at when I cried without knowing: Govinda! Govinda! Govinda! Govinda! How gaily the river was flowing! My spouse and i carried my personal gifts to the Mathura shrine¦ How brightly the cierge were beautiful! I folded my hands at the altars to hope “O shining ones shield us simply by night and by day- And loudly the conch covers were coming.

But my own heart was so misplaced in your worship, Beloved, These were wroth once i cried without knowing: Govinda! Govinda! Govinda! Govinda!

How shiny the river was moving! Substance with the poem Radha, the milkmaid is transporting curds to Mathura (Krishna’s birthplace) where the spring celebration is going in. Cows will be lowing softly in the areas. Radha, desperate to give out her trade cry to sell her curds that is certainly as light as the autumn clouds, instead, phone calls out My own Lord! My own Lord! Every person laughs. The river Jamuna flows about softly, as if appreciating her chant. Radha reaches the financial institution of the water to combination by the ferry boat. Her female buddies want to put on the saffron garments, area of springtime, and want to sing and dance and pick the new pals.

Radha’s center swells with all the music of her Much loved Lord Krishna. She meows in fervor when other folks humor her. The lake Jamuna flows on joyfully regardless. Radha reaches, with her items of curds, the brow, where the cierge are brightly burning. She folds her hands to pray towards the deity, encased by dogs, and prays for safety while the conch shells happen to be blown. Her heart is lost for the vision of her Precious Lord and she phone calls out the identity involuntarily. Others become upset. But the river Jamuna goes on when her drinking water dazzles in the light from the torches. A vital estimate of the poem

The title of the poem transports us to another world, to an environment of virility and great quantity. Mother Nature abounds the earth with the flow of her water. This white-colored liquid signifies affection and nurturing of life. Radha, the child of Nature carries the liquid of life and growth to any or all living beings. Mathura can be her destination where Krishna, the Work Musician keeps everybody mesmerized with his mystic presence. The heifers herald her arrival to Mathura where she is going to pour in the pots the liquid which in turn she has brought- energy and power from the mother Earth.

It is worth observing that Sita, the additional daughter of mother Earth likewise represents all of that stand for production. Mathura is here the center of life and abundance. Even though the cow may be the species, that represents the flow of life and abundance. Radha feeds and nurtures your life. Even the clouds in the sky, light and creamy, are part of the resources of life. The clouds and breeze together produce rain to awash the earth while using energy and moisture that coaxes the dormant energy into existence energy. Time of the 12 months should also be noted.

It’s the time of incessant rain, the month of Shravan (August- September), when the life- providing moisture explodes forth. Radha’s heart wavers from her task available. She desires for her union with Work Musician, a presence that encompasses every soul of Mathura. She actually is absorbed, cardiovascular system and head, in his marvel presence and the trade cry she is expected give out does not come with her lips- only the name of Govinda, the Omnipresent, the Omniscient and the Omnipotent, approaching spontaneously from her cardiovascular, reverberates.

The poet, below, juxtaposes the two conceptions, the flowing in the river and Radha’s longing for a communion with Krishna. Radha is presented in the poem in the first person. Inside the first stanza she identifies the commodity she is carrying. Her brain is to some extent attached to the earthly duties and characteristics of her work. Possibly in her surroundings she hears the cry from the heifers, a creature she attaches with her trade. Inside the second stanza, her brain is attracted towards the delight and gaiety of nature.

She feels the abundance in her cardiovascular Life is streaming everywhere. Dear Mantu We are nown drawn to Indian English language literature plus your attempt at solving Sarojini is a marvellous effort to that end Yes American indian English literature could be effective only when India breathes throughout the language from the Teutonic college and here is an instance of success Ihave read the substance and critical remarks with wonderful interest and i also have a number of reflections within the poem i submit just before you

First of all Idont think that there is any clue inside the text wherefrom we could infer that Krishna is at Mathura when Radha comes generally there Secondly nevertheless Vrindavan has not been mentoioned below it is very clear that Radha comes from in other places to Mathura to sell her milk product She originates from the other side of Jamuna Your woman comes from her village Mathura is a trade centre and town The poem within the surface dwells on a maid who comes to the town pertaining to selling milk product Nevertheless her brain is full of Govinda So instead of paying attention to her etting and spending and instead of providing her operate cry with gusto the lady unaware of very little cries out loud the term Govinda her sweetheart An excellent portrait of your loveladen cardiovascular of a village girl Methinks the the heifers donot low at the place reasonable at Mathura They lowed whhen the lady was having her dairy product and setting out intended for Mathura Then this Jamuna as well as the boat trip with her comrades and lastly at Mathura at the reasonable and at the temple As a result four vignettes one after another pass by before each of our minds eye The plea at the temple is very holding Because it is for achieving nothing great May well all the gods protect us That is all Just as the naive boatman when activities the godhead incarnated since goddess Annapurna in

Bharatchandra only prays that her should stay well given That is all These simple folks are very much contrary to us They dont wish to be a scholar or a man of science or a director Bush Me personally thinks which the truly American indian attitude toward life along with the breeze with the month of Shravan produces through the composition Mind you the poem has its own riddles in it to ponder above the curds happen to be as white colored as the clouds inside the clear sky But the period when Radha crosses the Jamuna is definitely Shravan the moment there simply no white atmosphere But Radha fails to publicize the good top quality of her curds Since the blue clouds of the month of Shravan seem to engross her Again it is Shravan to Radha when her comrades wish to add saffron dresses in a harmonious relationship with the planting season time So many seasons at the same time draws my own attention Thuis all the conditions are very subjective Jamuna flows between the place where Radha stays plus the place where Radha performs for money Jamuna is a chasm between the two worlds , -one exactly where love reigns and the other where exchange reigns The method that you have interpreted milk is very convincing Indeed it is through the villages that energy flows to refresh the life in the cities

On another level Go vinda might suggest the hub of the earth or whole world or the method to obtain all mild Of course Radha is the image of the earth Her cardiovascular system is full of the longing for the skies Right now there you see the myth of Gaia and Ourania Dyaus and Prithivi And you have legally brought Sita and Radha together. Regards Ramesh Special Mandira, The gorgeous poem -Songs of Radha the Milkmaid that you have chosen from Sarojini Naidu’s book of poems incites me personally to share some thing. I, personally am greatly fond of *Kirtana *-the talent that performs basically the fliederblau of Radha and Krishna, particularly the *Biraha *portion the moment Krishna kept Radha in Brindavan and himself visited Mathura to do another duty and actions. Radha remained ever engrossed in the thoughts of Krishna and waited for his return. When any basket etc . originated in Mathura the lady rushed there in the expect that her beloved must have come back. But in vain.

The love-lorn Radha became more sad. We am supplying below a song that portrays this in a poignant manner, Piya tora kaisa abhiman Saghana sawan laye kadama bahar Mathura aprendí doli laye charo kahar Nahi aye nahi aye Kesaria balma hamar Angana bara sunsan Apne nayan se neer bahaye Apne Yamuna khud aphi banaye Lakh tavern usme nahaya Pura mhh hoi asnan Phir pura na hoi asnan Sukhe kesh rukhe besh Manua bejaan From this backdrop I would really like to give my personal interpretation. Radha had not in fact gone to Mathura. Rather in her internal mind exhibited what happens had the lady gone to Mathura fair, Mathura tide, Mathura shrine respectively. In the Mathura fair she would sell her curd.

While Radha would not have virtually any idea regarding the life type of Mathura -the capital metropolis, hence the girl imagined that heifers would be there and in addition they were lowing softly in the hope with the union of Radha and Krishna because they had done in Brindavan. Radha would not sell off milk, in its stead curd. Why? Since her appreciate for Krishna that side turned via milk to curd in the absence of Krishna/Gobinda. But it continued to be as real and light as the white impair of the sky. But mind that though Shravan wind were coming yet the impair was white. How is it possible? As mainly because Krishna has not been with Radha hence there were Shravan breezes blowing in her mind/sky. Radha would sell her product only to Krishna Her mind was full of genuine love to get Krishna, ( i. elizabeth.. the light cloud). Following shower the sky becomes clear. So happened in case of Radha’s mind. Unaware the girl uttered Gobinda! Gobinda.

And when her friends may laugh at her her pent up thoughts were produced and her mind acquired a relief. Her conscious mind /the river started flowing gently. The other two stanzas may be likewise explicated. I resist personally to do that. Would it seem to be too far fetched. With love current hope to notice more a person. Dipika Special Dipikadi, Thanks a lot for your own interpretation of the poem. You happen to be wonderfully musical and your point of view has added proportions to the simple village ladies vision of her keen Beloved. Please write the point of view on the other two stanzas too. the best Mondira Inside the second stanza, Radha dreamed of that the lady went to Mathura with her pot.

In the pot Radha might have used her take pleasure in, her longing for Krishna The imagery of pot at the same time reminds us individuals body that separates us/here Radha in the union of the own our god /Krishna. When the earthen pot breaks you will have the everlasting union. Through this context, the phrase Mathura tide has a special import. As due to the appeal of the Moon there comes the high tide inside the river, similarly Radha’s brain and body- her cardiovascular system and breast swelled up being attracted to Mathura where her much loved resides. But as high wave and ebb tide come and go in alternative manner, similarly Radha’s emotion, feelings and demeanour changed- now optimistic and the up coming moment frustrated.

While the lady thought of her union with Krishna presently there came the high tide. And there is all mirth and enjoyment. Merrily merrily the rowers, that is, her sweet remembrances were passing. There was great quantity and get away from. At once springtime came forth. Radha Krishna’s union is always associated with her *sakhis *-the comrades such as the asto sakhis-Lolita, Bisakha and so forth Hence there appeared the comrades in colourful dresses. They were dancing, singing, plucking new pals to make garlands to welcome the two precious ones- Radha and Krishna. The new buds were blowing. How? Presently there air blew gently. With this the flower crops also transferred. As if the whole Nature got part and was satisfied with the union of Radha and Krishna.

The entire stage bacame colouful and shifting with coloufully clad comrades dancing, singing along with ever forced new pals on the crops as well as on the hands with the sakhis. The sakhis wished to wear saffron coloured outfit. Why? Since Krihna has not been there. Simultaneously the colour gives out a sensation the Indio sanyasi/nies whom used to wear saffron coloured gown. This is the colour of mensturation of the holy mother. This kind of colour means detachment through the hurly burly of the ordinary world. And so Radha could hardly take part in virtually any paltry day to day activity rather than in any mirth and merry. At once we are able to hear the unheard sound -Krihna ze to nei nei re. The ebb tide- the depressed disposition of Radha prevailed.

Her ears constantly heard Krishna’s music-Yeno nishi din murali dhani suni /Ujan bohe prem Yamunari bari /Nupuro hoye yano he Bonochari/Chorono jaraye dhore kandite pari/ Mamo madhuro minati sono Ganashyama Giridhari¦. And Radha could not but cry out and complete Gobinda! Gobinda! The pent up emotion simultaneously got produced. And Radha’s mind became relaxed. So did the river flow gaily. The high tide came quickly. In the third stanza we find Radha in a different feeling. All interest being put in there was peaceful in mind. and such a state on mind Radha imagined to see the Mathura shrine. Somewhat now Radha was in a situation to visit the Mathura shrine. If in the 1st stanza Radha , s mindful thoughts had been described, it was on the surface area level for the reason that heifar accustomed to gaze for the surface. nd Radha’s thoughts were going softly like the soft lowing of the cows. But as shortly as Radha uttered the term Gobinda her thoughts could delve further Her stream of mind started to movement softly. Thus then simultaneously the placing changed from your land to river. Inside the 2nd stanza her thoughts went more deeply. May be this touched the pre-conscious level. Because there in the 2nd stanza in the dream like circumstance Radha can face her carnal desire towards Krishna. The symbolism of weed, the pals, the grooving, singing water water with high wave and go tide and so forth all are suggetive to a thing associated with sexual acts. See, Inthe first stanza Radha , s mind was filled with Krishna’s splendor.

Here she was que contiene cerned of her beloved’s physical attraction. But then the rowers came and rowed gaily and they were most mirth and mery ( may be Physical /sexual enjoyment were imaginatively faced. ) To face a desire several square means to become clear of it. This is why in the second stanza Radha’s Mind became free from Physical desire alternatively she was concerned about Krishna’s sound. However the river i. e. the stream of conscous right now moved gaily. The charm of sight and audio cannot long lasting. Hence shorn of lascivo desires Radha’s love today can have the power to send herself totally to her Dearest. Now neither her brain nor her body was disturbed.

They had been burned up and thereby emitting light and therefore acting as torches. Radha’s was at this point fit to meditate. Hence Radha in her mind went to the shrine. Generally there she may find those bright lamps of pure take pleasure in that obtained their lighting through penance. She with folded hands prayed designed for herself nevertheless for us-the mankind as a whole, could possibly be for all sentient and insentient odjects under the Sun. The girl asked certainly not the union of Krishna but the well-being of all and sundry simply by day and night. When those genuine lights protect, who could dare to perform any injury? Such catholicity of head was at once applauded by simply gods as well and the audio of conch-shell was noticed as a indication of it.. May be this was requirements of Panchajanya -the conch shell that Krishna blew in the Kurukshetra at the begining of the battle). But now it absolutely was blown to declare that Radha acquired successfully over come her mean self-centred desires and she became victorious. But the desires, that were termed as Mara in the Buddhist literature, can be here personified. So they( the personified desires) had been wroth soon after the sound in the conch-shell odviouly they were annoyed as because they were conquered in their techniques to ensnare Radha. And unknowingly Radha uttered Govinda! Govinda! And her stream of consciosness shorn of all impurities became a river of bright light.

T his imagery of brightness jogs my memory the story of Ahalya who have became dazzling through her penance when ever Ram stopped at her ( in Valmiki)/touched his toes ( in Krittivasa) for the place where Ahalya slept and seen penance. Hard Penance built Ahalya women to be appreciated every early morning as per Indio Sastra. Likewise Radha the eternal consort of Krisna is being worshipped through out Northen India for her selfless genuine love to get Krishna. Since now onwards, we may very easily guess thatRadha’s heart is ever going to remain shed in Krishna’s worship in contrast of her earlier center full of krishna’s beauty, after that her filled with his music in the 1st two stanzas. We may quickly imagine that at this point she may sit years after years in a meditative mood with her center lost in Krishna’s praise. It is said that even today as well Radha is definitely waiting in Brindavan for her Beloved Krishna.
