Context and Meaning 

The last two ashtapadis were Radha's friend describing in gory detail all the fun Krishna was having with other gopis. Radha becomes very sad on hearing this — Krishna seems to see her just as he sees any other gopi! What could be more cruel than indifference from a loved one? She goes into a quiet bower, and tearfully tells her friend that all she can think about is Krishna. A beautiful description of Krishna as remembered by Radha is the content of this ashtapadi.
