Blue Monday #46: "Krishna and Radha"

"Krishna and Radha"
Cary, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

For those of you not familiar, let me introduce the band. that's Krishna on the flute and his beloved Radha singing backup. If you look close, you'll see Hanuman at the bottom with... I have no idea who that is. Looks like a couple of Krishna lookalikes got into the act on the right of the frame too.

I'm not completely guessing on these, but I'm not completely sure either because as I'm writing this it's late February and my language and cultural "coach", Mona of The Two Bits is out of touch tending to gravely ill brother in law in California. By the time you read this, I'm hoping he will have made a full recovery and be back to life as normal, but tonight (which is actually about 5 months ago to you) he's in pretty bad shape up so I'm not about to trouble Monaji for clarification. I'm sure someone will correct me if I need correcting.Violence Unsilenced

you are right about krishna and radha
but it is not hanuman but narsimha and prahlad. narsimha is an avatar of lord vishnu. on the right is baby krishna.

I, also am not sure of the names. But these names are very familiar - part of the culture? They are so colorful.

Happy Blue Monday!
