Radha, daughter of Vrishabhanu, was the mistress of Krishna during that period of his life when he lived among the cowherds of Vrindavan. Since childhood they were close to each other - they played, they danced, they fought, they grew up together and wanted to be together forever, but the world pulled them apart. He departed to safeguard the virtues of truth, and she waited for him. He vanquished his enemies, became the king, and came to be worshiped as a lord of the universe. She waited for him.
He married Rukmini and Satyabhama, raised a family, fought the great war of Ayodhya, and she still waited.

List of historic Indian texts
The Atharva Veda and Brahmana literature, which are 2, years old, do refer to Puranas, but the Purana texts that finally come to us are less than 1, years old. The earliest fully developed sacred Hindu stories were the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, which may be called proto-purana, although they are separated from Puranas by being classified as Itihasa.
Valmiki is witness to events of the Ramayana and Vyasa to the events of Mahabharata, which makes these epics Itihasa. No one actually witnesses the stories of the Puranas. They are simply received. Most scholars agree that Vishnu Purana is the earliest Purana which was written down during the time of the Gupta kings.

The most refined purana is the Bhagavata Purana, which reached its final form around 1, years ago. Puranas say that when Brahma created the world from his four mouths, he chanted the Vedas and Puranas, thus placing Puranas at an equal footing with the Vedas. Around 1, years ago, poets like Mamata were of the opinion that Vedas are of value only for the sound they create and the Puranas for the meaning that they share, while classical poetry kavya for both the language as well as the meaning.
They also saw Vedas as that which speak to you in the voice of god, Puranas as that which speak to you in the voice of a friend, and Kavya that speaks to you in the voice of a beloved woman or a lover. The story goes that originally there was only one Purana with a crore verse and it was located in the realm of the gods, but it was later brought down to earth by Vyasa who divided it into eighteen Maha Purans.

Eighteen is a sacred number recurring in the ancient scriptures Mahabharata has eighteen chapters, Gita has eighteen chapters. A Maha Purana is non-sectarian, while a Upa Purana is sectarian, meaning it is very focused on Shaivism or Vaishnavism, or on a particular caste known as Jati Purana, or it is located on a particular pilgrim spot known as Sthala Purana.
Essentially, Puranas are stories that are located in what may be called the Brahmanical space and time framework. It means they need to have certain lakshana or qualities. They have to describe the creation cycles, the sarga and the prati-sarga, the life cycle of a world or kalpa with its divisions the yugas, the various eras which are led by Manu also known as Manvantara , and finally they have to be located within each of these yugas, and manvantaras must be the vanshavali or the lineage of kings.
