Radha is the avatar of Goddess Shakti who is believed to be a passionate devotee of Lord Krishna. And when the Natkhat Krishna used to play the flute, Radha used to get mesmerized and left everything and danced around him. If you also love someone, then remain devoted towards your partner like Radha.
