Krishna wears a transparent white muslin jama, a popular article of Mughal fashion since the time of Emperor Jahangir (r. 1605–27).
When Krishna returns home at dawn, having spent the night elsewhere, an infuriated Radha inquires about his whereabouts and accuses him of infidelity. Krishna, realizing the intensity of the situation, tries to assuage her with sweet words and compares her red eyes to lotus petals. The rising sun behind the thick foliage is suggestive of early dawn.
