Shri Krishna, The series opens with Krishna devotee Sridama reaching the former's celestial home (Golok) along with Narad and getting upset at noticing that he has to recite Krishna's beloved Radha’s name first for entry. The latter intellectually tries to prove that his devotion is higher than love which is nothing but illusion, but eventually realises that true love supersedes everything. While doing so he ends up cursing Radha that she will spend 100 years outside their celestial home and will forget about Krishna. But the love between Radha Krishna is not physical but much deeper and platonic. No wonder when Krishn merely calls out her name, she hears. Although Sridama is very repentant at his action, he comes to understand that all this was part of the cosmic play as it was time for Krishn to make his entry in the mortal world. The story is about journey of Radha & Krishna's eternal love on earth and teaching the humans the true meaning of love.
The main motto of the story is "Paane ko hi prem kahe, jag ki hai yeh reet, prem arth samjhayegi, Radha-Krishna ki preet" which means world misunderstands love as the thing we ask for or want in return of love but the true meaning of love is sacrifice, full devotion or dedication towards lover and happiness of lover, irrespective of other one's need or want, as taught by the love story of Radha-Krishna.
In this journey of teaching love to the world, with the help of curse of Radha by Sridama, Krishna lives the life of an ordinary human with extraordinary powers and takes Radha out of all humanly weaknesses like fear (bhay), attachment (moh), anger (krodh), hatred (ghrina), envy (irshya), ego (ahankar) and inferiority complex (heenbhavna). Radha comes more closer to Krishna after defeating each humanly weakness. In the greatest example of sacrifice (tyaag), the essence of true love, Radha-Krishna could not marry, even after being ardent lovers. But as Krishna says marriage is not the goal of love, it's just a stage in journey of love, which some lovers could achieve while some couldn't but that can't change and deny their true love. They sacrifice their love to tell world that the sacrifice is the essence of true love. Radha is forced to marry her childhood friend Ayan. But even that couldn't stop their love for each other as they're lovers from time immemorial.
Krishna one day makes her realise and get her supreme and eternal form of Radha of Golok for sometime, which Radha thinks to be a dream, although its reality. Finally, Radha understands the true meaning of love in the last stage of dedication and compliance (samarpan), which she understands after listening the story of seven avatars of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi from Krishn. The love of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi, how they got separated each time for betterment of the universe and to teach love to the world and how they got united after each avatar. Only after listening the stories of Bal Krishna and seven avatars of Lord Vishnu, she realises her and Krishna's true love. Radha also understands that her marriage is fake and eternally she is Krishna's consort as they are husband-wife in their real divine Lakshmi-Narayan form.
In this human life, apart from his love story with Radha, Krishna along with Balaram fights the demons sent by Kansa, his maternal uncle, as he's the person who will kill Kans, like Putana, Trinavart, Bakasur, Aghasur, Vyomasur, Arishtasur, Dhumrasur, Markadikasur, Keshi, Timirasur, Shankhchur, Karkashasur, Ekdansh, Jwalantak, Sudarshan, demoness enchantress Sammohana, Dhenukasur and Pralamba.
