It is a popular lovers tale, rather unique in India. Marriages in India have traditionally been set by parents. However, princely families sometimes held brides choice contests. In the case of Rukmini, daughter of the king of Vidarbha. Her father and brother had settled on Shishupala whom she detested. Her mind was set on Krishna of whose exploits she had heard. But there was to be no brides choice event. So Rukmini takes the initiative by writing a letter to Krishna and sends it through a confidant. Krishna who also had heard of her, decides to act on the letter. Krishna and Balarama arrive in Rukminis town and whisk her away on their chariot to their capital Dvaraka. Balarama fights Shishupala and defeats him.
