Sample: Krsna says, ‘‘O Mother! Give me a small but thick missī rotī after adding clarified butter (ghī) to it.’’ Yaśodā says, ‘‘Take it Kanhaiyā.’’ Krsna asks, ‘‘when will he (Balarāma) get it?’’ Yaśodā replies, ‘‘Very soon.’’ Krsna replies, ‘‘I will eat this rotī alone and I will not share it with Baladāū.’’ Yaśodā asks, ‘‘why so?’’ Krsna replies, ‘‘O gentle woman, why does it bother you,’’ and roams here and there.[1]
