Story of Gop & Gopi Master
Literal translation of the word “Gopi” is cowherd girl (or Cowgirl). In Indian Mythology Lord Krishna grew up with cow herders. He was a master flute player. When he played flute, Gopies used to flock to him. One time my friend casually asked me which one of my gopies I am playing with and that was a start of “Gopi” phenomenon. In this context, flute and bridge playing is synonymous. Then on the name Gopi is used to refer to a lady bridge partner of mine. I can not take the Lord Krishna’s name, so I have taken a self given title of “Gopi Master”.
