Krishna's Secret

By: Devdutt Pattanaik

On this festival of Janmashtami or Gokulashtami, renowned author Devdutt Pattanaik in an extract from his book, 7 Secrets of Vishnu, reminds is that Krishna is an unusual God—most unconventional, whether as an endearing cowherd or the astute charioteer in the Mahabharata. ‘His mother is not his real mother, his beloved is not his wife…; his lovemaking is not really lovemaking; his war is not really war. There is always more than meets the eye. And so, only Krishna, of all the avatars, sports a smile, a mischievous, meaningful smile. There is always more than meets the eye, when Krishna is around.’
