I stole Him from VRndAvan and Gokul !

Shri KRshNa Govinda hare MurAre
he nAth NArAyaNa VAsudeva ~
Hare KRshNa Hare KRshNa KRshNa KRshNa Hare Hare

"KshamA karnA TauJi, mai aapke Kanhaiyaa ko churakar le ja rahi hun"
"Forgive me TauJi (BalrAmJi), but i am stealing Your KanhaiyA from Brajbhumi"

"Forgive me Yashoda MaiyA, i am stealing Your Lalla from Braj"

i paid my last final obeissances before leaving the Temple...

On the road out of VRndAvan BAL KRshNa was quiet and comfortable in the van - ... i gave Him some of His favorite munchies... then He looked drowsy and tired so i put Him to sleep.... but something was wrong..... i felt guilty for stealing Him away, although He was always there before this VRndavan trip....
how could i be so unfair to my dear KAnhA, and separate Him from His dearest vrajvAsis, and He is only a baby!

Despite such injustice that i was meting out, He did not complain. His silence made my heart cry....
then the solution came by.....

The entire Braj poured, cascading down into my heart in the form of the waters of Yamuna ... the pure sound and scent of the Yamuna in the background. Then it was quiet again....

So i have to change the title of the story to: "I stole Braj from Braj."
