Arjun was one of the Pandav brothers. He resorted to pilgrimage as a penance since he violated the agreement between his brothers regarding their consort Draupadi. After visiting many sacred places, in the guise of a sage, Arjun reached Dwaraka where Krishna was ruling. Subadhra, the younger sister of Krishna was to be married to Duryodhan. But Subadhra, having heard about Arjun’s appearance and skill in archery started liking him, even before seeing him! Krishna knew about Ariun’s wish to marry Subadhra and arranged their marriage in secrecy, in the presence of his parents. The scene depicts Arjun in his disguise as a sage, caressing Subadhra after the disclosure of his identity.
