TRANSLATION

The women stood in the watchtowers, palaces and high gates of the city. When they could no longer see Kṛṣṇa's and Balarāma's chariots, identified by banners marked with the emblems of Garuḍa and a palm tree, they were struck with grief and fainted.


PURPORT

The women are especially mentioned here because of their extraordinary attachment to Lord Kṛṣṇa and Lord Balarāma.
