The play Keli-Gopala is a phantasmagoria. The play depicts the playful nature of Krishna with a feel of music and moonlight, dance and despair. In the moon lit night of the autumn month Krishna plays his flute in the backdrop of river Yamuna. Appealed by the melodious tune the girls of Vrindavan
gather near Lord Krishna
to enjoy the rasa dance with him. The dance transports them on the land of eternal bliss and they are smitten by Krishna's charm and persona. Krishna suddenly disappears from the scene which inflicts the girls with anxiety but soon they are relaxed as he returns back. Krishna and the girls again get engaged in their rasa-Mandala dance. They go for a water sports in the Yamuna River
. This joy continued till dawn and is repeated over several nights. One night a demon called Samkhacuda attacked the cowherd girls and molested one of them. This incident led to a fight between Krishna and the demon. Eventually the demon was killed by Krishna.
The drama from the Bhagavata Purana
is prominent for its poetic illustrations and the demonstrations of supreme love and devotion of cowherds for Krishna. It is not an action oriented drama but a soft portrayal of romanticism and idealism.
