As stated Jhulan-yatra is very dear to Krishna, He likes it very much, now from another perspective you will see why !!!. From a cultural perspective in India during this period, all daughters go to their father’s house to stay there for some days and enjoy the swing festival – a custom celebrated even up to this day.
Every year Srimati Radharani used to go to Varshana to her parents’ house and have a very nice time there with her Gopi friends and Krishna, whom She could freely meet (because Jotila and Kotila were not around).
‘One time Radharani was waiting for her brother Sridam to come and take her to her fathers’ house. She was waiting, waiting, and waiting, but there was no sign of Sridam and She became so sad. One day a person from Varsana was there. She asked the man to ask her father, “Why have they have forgotten Me?” She then started to cry bitterly. The person went to Varshana and told Vrsabhanu Maharaja about the condition of his daughter. Hearing this news, Vrishabhanu Maharaja immediately sent Sridam to Varshana to get Radharani.
Srimati Radharani’s Mother Kirtida packed many presents for Jotila to send with Sridam, knowing that if she did not do this, Jotila, being harsh of character sometimes would not send Srimati Radharani to Varshana.
Meanwhile, day and night Srimati Radharani was staring at the road coming from Varshana. One day, She saw Sridam and when he finally arrived at the front gate they embraced each other. She was weeping, “Oh brother you had forgotten Me?; My father and mother too?; Everyone forgot Me?”
At first Jotila refused to let Srimati Radharani go. “No no, She cannot go. She has so much work to do here, and there is so much danger there because of that black boy. She cannot go.”
Then Sridam gave Jotila all the presents given by Kirtida ma. Seeing this, she said, “Alright, she can go, but only for a few days.”
“Then Srimati Radharani and Sridam went on a cart pulled by four bullocks to Varshana. Seeing the palace of her parents on the hilltop, feeling great happiness Radharani started weeping and even more weeping when She saw Her father and mother face to face.
