Dear Diary,

It was valentine’s day two days ago. I remember a few years back, I had a date with the Dwarkadhish(The king of Dwarka) on this day. Being at Dwarka Dham with my family and friends, nothing seemed more wonderful than having a date with the most romantic and most playful of all, Lord Krishna. Though the Lord was busy as his devotees were bee-lined inside the temple to get a glimpse of him, I could manage to steal a few glances from him.

When we talk about Krishna, he was an unstoppable child, an enchanting flute player, a graceful dancer, an irresistible lover, a truly valiant warrior, an ingenious statesman and kingmaker, a yogi of the highest order and the most colorful incarnation. Krishna was in love with everyone and everything in life as he was extremely vibrant as a life and was most successful in everything he did.

Krishna’s childhood love Radha, whose love and devotion towards Krishna was so intense that We cannot talk of Lord Krishna without Radhe – we don’t say “Krishna Radhe,” we say, “Radhe Krishna” 

 Truly, love can do wonders. It can be a doorway to the divine and liberation. And a Valentine’s day can certainly be a great start towards the platonic.
