|"Being a cowherd girl, Srimati Radharani regularly carries a container of milk and often goes to sell it on the other side of the Yamuna. To cross the river, She has to pay the boatman, and the spot where the boatman collects his fares is called the dana-ghati. Lord Sri Krishna stops Her from going, telling Her, 'First You have to pay the fee; then You will be allowed to go.' This pastime is called dana-keli-lila. Similarly, if Srimati Radharani wants to pick a flower, Sri Krishna claims to be the garden's proprietor and prohibits Her. This pastime is called kila-kincita." -Excerpt from Srila Prabhupada's Purport, Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya-lila 14.173
