and Krishna have been worshipped as a couple for so many ages. Despite this,
why is Rãdhã not listed as one of Krishna’s 16,000 wives?
are many unasked and unanswered questions about the relationship of Rãdhã and
Krishna. Due to many myths and folklore, the divine relationship is mistaken as
unethical. Rãdhã is said to have been married to Rayan. At the same time, there
are numerous stories of Krishna’s and her amorous pastime in the isolated woods
of the Vrindavan. It is also said that once Krishna left Vrindavan, he didn’t

My Affair with Rãdhã is
a book that unfolds many untold stories about Rãdhã and Krishna—stories beyond
their birth, about their passionate love and love-making, about the reason
behind their incarnation and separation, stories about their reunion and return
from planet Earth. It is an attempt to
glorify the divine love.
The author, Kunal Desai, is an
engineer at mind and an artist at heart. Apart from creative writing, he is
also fond of painting, sketching, photography, playing the flute, and solving
puzzles. His questions on Rãdhã and her relationship with Krishna, the unavailability
of answers, the absence of Rãdhã in fundamental books about Krishna, and the
secrets unknown to the masses inspired him to pen My Affair with Rãdhã. The book is a result of three years of his
ardent research in an attempt to connect the dots.
