He Spent the Whole Night Outside Under the Ber Tree

The black cuckoo

The place called Beriya is where Krishna in separation waited under a Ber tree in the courtyard of Radaharani’s house and to attract the attention of Srimatiji climbed a branch and imitated a sound like a black cuckoo.

However, when Srimati descended and tried to open the door, the loud sound of her gait and ankle bells attracted the attention of Jatila who queried in a loud voice,

“Who is there?”

Again and again whenever Krishna tried to enter the house he was prevented due to the sharp voice of Jatila.

Thus He spent the whole night outside under the Ber tree.

This pastime happened in a place called Beriya, in Yavata
