Jaidev's 'Geet Govinda' written in the 12th century is a symbolic representation of the love of Krishna - Radha revived through the 'Bhakti' cults of devotion to the God of happiness. The hero, who is god and the mortal woman, his consort experience fluid feelings, intense feelings and evanescent stirings. But the actual variegated personal relationship between the poet jaidev and his dancer wife is lifted into sublime universality.
The eternal love of Krishna- Radha was extensively portrayed in litreture and art.
