Krishna the mendicant

Krishna, in acute separation, went to Yavata in the guise of a mendicant to the house of Jatila in order to meet Radharani.

Usually, Radhika playing the role of a faithful wife, would never meet any other man except her husband.
Nonetheless, Jatila not wishing to offend a mendicant guest, coaxed Srimati to go and offer some vegetables, fruit and grains to him.
Srimati Radhika with her face dutifully covered with a veil went out and offered the food articles to the apparent mendicant.

But a smile came to her face when the mendicant declared that he was not interested in the food but wanted her reciprocation.
She quickly uncovered her veil and emptied all the contents of the tray on the head of Sri Krishna while he walked away contented that he had fulfilled His sight of Srimati Radhika.
