Elder son of former CM of Bihar Laloo Prasad Yadav and former Health minister of the state, Tej Pratap Yadav has donned a new avatar in the recent video he shared on social media.
Tej Pratap, dressed up like Lord Krishna, wore a white dhoti and kurta, while also sporting peacock feathers on his headgear. In an avatar much reminiscent to Lord Krishna, he could be seen playing a flute amongst the herd of cows and calves present.
He shared a number of photos on Instagram, portraying his admiration for Lord Krishna and the need to follow his example. Here are the following photos and messages he shared:
"Maan Sarovara - Maan means anger this place is called maan sarovara because Srimati Radha Rani came here in the mood of Maan. Maan is when Radharani acts angry and feels hurt because of Krishna’s neglect. There is temple on the bank of this lake dedicated to Srimati Radharani. Lord Shiva bathed here to take the form of a Gopi. Maan Sarovara is located in a peaceful place, totally surrounded by woods. Not many people visits this place and untill you get fairly close to this place most people will not know where it is located. Bhandirvan:- Balrama killed the demon Pralambasura, Radha Anand Bihari temple the deity of krishna in this temple applyin vermilion (a red dot,kumkum,sindoor) to the forehead of Srimati Radha Rani. The husband applies vermilion to the head of his wife when they are married. Jiva Goswami said in Gopala Campu that Radha & Krishna were married at bhandirvat (Banyan Tree) in the Bhandirvana forest. Lord Brahma was the officiating priest for the marrige and the other demigods alo took part," his message read.
"As Krishna's divine flute calls at any time of the. ... Krishna's beloved cows stand tranquilly with their ears spread just ... Lord Krishna's life sets an example for man to change his attitude ...," he further wrote.
Earlier this year in July, Tej Pratap could be seen donning the costume of Lord Shiva at a temple in Patna. In fact, he is also scheduled to feature in a film named 'Rudra'. Of late Tej Pratap has been in the news for his differences with his younger brother Tejashwi yadav.
On two occasions he expressed his anger on Facebook and Twitter that the coterie surrounding Tejashwi are trying to sideline him within the RJD. But later, he went onto state that his social media accounts were hacked, accusing BJP and RSS of having a role behind it.
In a show of unity, both the brothers did a photo op posturing a couple of months back and Tej Pratap had stated that Tejashwi is the 'apple of his eye' and he wants to see him as Chief minister of Bihar.
It is believed that Tej Pratap is upset at playing second fiddle to Tejashwi, and it was recently confirmed by Laloo Yadavs eldest daughter Misa Bharti. While addressing the party workers, she had stated that there were differences between her brothers.
