But Radha Wants More

I was inspired by a popular Hindi song "Radha On the Dance Floor," about a girl who likes to party. The one refrain for this song is "But Radha wants more." I started thinking about Radha as a real woman, and if she wanted more from her life.

Her name in history is always coupled with Krishna and she doesn't stand on her own. There have always been questions around her relationship with Krishna, as they're seen as a epitome of romance, yet they were not married.

I wanted to give Radha a moment to reflect about herself and what it means to be chosen by a divine entity. 

Like the garland of flowers, she is gone, but her essence lingers.
