Kajara Banke Shyam
Sudama was a very poor man and he did not have anything at all. So, once Sudama’s wife told him, “See, Krishna is your very close friend, dear friend. Why don’t you go and ask him for some help?” Sudama was a little shy, “How can I ask a friend for something.” But when there was no other way to go, he decided to meet Krishna. There is a custom in India that when you go to meet somebody, you don’t go empty-handed. So what could he take? He had nothing as such to gift Krishna! And then at home, he had few rice krispies. So he packed them in a piece of cloth and took them to Krishna. He entered the palace and noticed that Krishna was sitting on his throne, and there were so many servants around.
And the moment he saw Sudama, he rushed down, and washed his feet and offered him his own seat. And then Krishna asked Sudama, “What have you brought for me? Krishna knew that Sudama was so shy, that he was trying to hide his rice krispies. “How I can offer these rice krispies?” asked Sudama, but then Krishna grabbed hold of it and caught on, and then he went on stuffing it in his mouth. The joy of meeting his old friend was so much that Sudama even forgot to ask anything and Krishna forgot to give him anything! When two souls meet in such deep friendship, they forget everything. Sudama thanked Krishna and left the palace. And it is said, when Sudama went back to his home, he found his whole house transformed, and he was all rich. His wife was very happy.
