Archer Discusses Attraction
Of Hindu Legend for India

By JUDY DONER
The story' of a god and, his'
paramour captured the hearts of
India mainly because Hindu so-
ciety made the actual achieve-
ment of love difficult, according
to William G. Archer of the Vic-
toria and Albert Museum, London,
England.
Archer, addressing listeners at
the University lecture series on
"The. Love of Krishna in Indian
Painting," told of ~ the life of"
Krishna, a beloved god of India,
through poetry and slides.
"The story of Krishna surprises
us, because of the natural way the
religion and romance in it are
identified together," Archer re-
tmiarked.
He related the story of how the
god Krishna fell in love withRad-
ha, a milk-maid and a married
woman. The two experienced an
all-inclusive love, which pervaded
every moment of their lives.
Through the use of slides, Arch-
er pointed out the pleasure they
took in each other, whether he
was helping her to do farm work,
they were playing 'among the
flowers, or as they met after an
absence.
Their capacity to enrich the
passing . moment, Archer ex-
plained, is why Radha was willing

to give up her moral standards,
and though married, to love
Erishna.
"However, there Is another as-
pect to the story," Archer con-
tinued. "Krishna was not faithful
to Radha."
"When she discovered that he
had been making love to the oth-
er milkmaids, she rejcted him.
"Krishna realized that it was
Radha whom he really loved,
however, he was unable to give
up the other milkmaids," Archer
noted.
In other stories he related,
Krishna was known as a hero, and
a prince.. Although born of royal
blood, he 'was reared among shep-
herds in order to protect his life
from a tyrant king.
When he came of age, he left
his pastoral environment to slay
the tyrant, according to Archer.
He eventually set up his own
kingdom, and returned only once
more to the milkmaids, and then
to tell them goodby.
