Krishna’s foster mother Yashoda become fond of Radha Rani’s beauty she lost into thoughts, aspired her as her daughter-in-law. So charmed by her beauty and qualities Yashoda maa put Haldi paste onto the hands of Radharani.

And if we go by rituals, this Haldi paste is applied by the mother-in-law to her soon to be daughter-in-law. While on the way back home at Barsana, Radharani thought about what the people of Barsana and her family members would say on looking at her yellow hands.
