This famous poem by Narottam Das (AD 1550-1605) describes the story of Sudama who was a close friend of Lord Krishna. Sudama lived in poverty and his wife always prodded Sudama to visit Lord Krishna in Dwarka for some financial help. Sudama felt reluctant to ask money from a friend but he finally relented. Lord Krishna heartily welcomed Sudama when he reached Dwarka but Sudama could not ask for money and returned empty handed. However when he reached his home he found that in his absence Lord Krishna had already had his dilapidated hut replaced with a grand golden palace. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
