    Darling, I have a question?
    When Hindu God's Shiva and Parvati stand together,Shiva always has a "Thrishulam".
    When Vishnu and Lakshmi stand
    together, Vishnu has a "sudarshana chakra".
    When Ram and Seetha stand together, Ram has an Arrow and Bow.
    But, when Krishna and Radha stand together, Krishna has no weapon, but only a flute. WHY?
    Husband:
    Simple answer!
    The first three Gods stood with their wives. Krishna stood with his lover. Whoever stands with his wife NEEDS a WEAPON!

    Not sure if we can call Radha as lover.
    Radha had utmost devotion for Krishna. The divine connection between Radha and Krishna cannot be termed as a love relationship between the two.

    Anyway I'm just seeing the above as joke but felt like sharing my above opinion.

    Radha is more a devotee and less a spouse. However, Rukmini and Satyabhama are often called wives of Krishna.... and not consorts.
    The bamboo flute of Krishna is not a weapon ? Perhaps for the sake-of-a-joke it could be. Krishna with his flute was the first of the genre of musicians who had always had control of their bevy of groupie's using whatever weapon they wield with expertise.

    What's women's obsession with musicians? Do Indian artistes have groupies?

    Agree with you.
    I have also read that Radha is one the most devoted Gopikas and all the Gopikas had a lot of devotion towards the most handsome man - Krishnar. The Tamil word describes Krishnar as AZHAGAN meaning handsome.

    Anyway my devotion towards the Lord makes me "not enjoy the joke " . A personal view .

    The wives make the husbands strong enough to fight evil. That's why they are holding weapons.

    Comedians of yesteryears (that YYs is an all encompassing descriptor, and goes to describe deliverers of jokes that cannot stand the test of times) who got by with spouse-jokes can flop gloriously in the current times. A modern politician who attempted that finds himself in deep-xxxx-trouble, and perhaps out of the race that he is competing in:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/take-my-wife-joke-please-a-campaign-trail-cliche-finally-bombs/2019/07/25/7374673a-ad56-11e9-bc5c-e73b603e7f38_story.html
    “In order to meet my bills, I had to make my wife my secretary,” President Harry S. Truman told a press gaggle at the White House in 1945. “She had to work all the time in the public interest, instead of keeping house. I didn’t like it!”

    Laughter ensued, per the transcript. The husband of Bess Truman was a popular guy at the time.

    Former congressman Beto O’Rourke, who aspires to the same office as Truman, attempted a wife joke of his own on the campaign trail. He ended up demonstrating how low the genre has fallen in public esteem.

    “I just had a call from my wife, Amy, who’s back in El Paso, Texas,” O’Rourke said at a coffee shop in Keokuk, Iowa, in March. “She is raising, sometimes with my help [rimshot here], Ulysses, who’s 12 years old, Molly, who is 10, and her little brother Henry, who is 8 years old.”

    The joke went over fine in the coffee shop but tanked with the country at large. What is funny about the unfair division of parenting labor? What female politician could poke fun at her absentee parenting? Critiques of the joke spread virally online, inspired analyses in this newspaper, the New York Times and CNN about O’Rourke’s gender assumptions and finally forced him to apologize. His bid for the Democratic presidential nomination now appears to be collapsing.

    What might've worked for Beto is a little self-deprecation with a modern tinge.....casting a kwestin over the paternity of all those children that Amy is dealing with. In a fine Rodney Dangerfield voice, he could'a added "I was SOooo out of town all the time, that poor Amy decided to start a family without a lot of my help, and now she is raising them pretty much on her own...". That would'a got him a laugh, as well as forgiveness from the potential electorate. His speech writers were both out-of-touch and out-of-tune.

    In
    the context of Indian ethos, a somewhat similar remark by a popular well connected in high places made a comment about ANDAL and he was taken to task by media with speed of internet. He had to eat the humble pie.
    Thanks and Regards.
