Surdas – Introduction of Surdas

There is a flourishing form of Brajbhasha in her poetry. She is the best link in the tradition of folk songs. Here 4 verses have been taken from the Bhram Geet of Sursagar. Krishna did not return himself after going to Mathura and sent a message to the gopis through Uddhava. The gopis preferred the path of love rather than the path of knowledge. Because of this, they did not like Uddhav’s message of happiness. Then there came a whirlwind, from where the song of Bhramar started.

In the first verse, the Gopis left sarcastic arrows at Uddhava, it seems justified that if Uddhav had been tied by the thread of the poet Sneha, he would have felt the pain of separation. The desire remained in his mind.

Expresses the depth of her love for Krishna. In the third stanza she expresses her belief in a certain love by describing Uddhav’s yoga practice as a bitter cucumber. In the fourth stanza she taunts Uddhava. That Krishna has now studied politics has taken.

In the end, Uddhav being reminded of Rajdharma (interest of the subjects) by the gopis shows the folk righteousness of Surdas.
