Jayapatākā Swami: Even if we take the position of being a parent of Kṛṣṇa, but still doing it as a service. So Puṇḍarīka Vidyānidhi, he is acting as a devotee, he is not acting as a parent. Although he may have been a parent in the previous līlā, he is not a parent in this līlā so the Lord is chastising him as a special mercy.
