'ramjani ko vachan radhika so' (Ramjani speaking to Radha) and numbered '247'
The painting is based on the verse 23 of the 10th chapter of Keshavdas' Rasikapriya.
'ramjani ko vachan radhika so. kavitt. komal kamal ve to amal ye tiksha chal/Malin nalin navalin ke se pat hain/sudhey sadhu suddha ve to kutil prasidha ye to/kesav maram-chor param kirat hain/paihe pakari tab paihe na kesahun tu/thoro ithlati ye to ati ithlat hai/barjati kyun na to so kab ki kahati/mere mohan ke mane tere nain chhave chhave jaat hai.23.'
'A Ramjani (woman of low caste) speaks to Radha - His mind is as soft and pure as a lotus, while your eyes are restless and sharp like new lotus leaves. He is a simple and good person while your eyes are seductive and cunning. Remember that if these eyes of yours enter his heart you will never be able to get him back. You should control your restless eyes for they adversely affect my Mohan. 23.'
