Why can't Radha curse her husband directly as she is also incarnation of God Shiva?

[Ms. Thrylokya asked:- Radha and Durvaasa are incarnations of God Shiva. Then, Radha can curse her husband directly. Why Durvaasa cursed her husband?]

Swami replied:- Since Radha married Ayanaghosha, it is not proper if she curses her husband. Radha was not even having the idea to curse Ayanaghosha. But, when Ayanaghosha tried to meet her with force, she was having a will to curse her husband. Since both Radha and Durvaasa are the incarnations of God Shiva, her wish immediately reflected in the mind of Sage Durvaasa. Sage Durvaasa cursed him due to some mistake done by Ayanaghosha. Ayanaghosha is also a sinner because he was serving king Kamsa and was helping Kamsa to kill Krishna, being the maternal uncle of Krishna. Due to his sinful nature, he was cursed by Sage Durvaasa. Sage Durvaasa cursed him that he would die if he touched Radha. Later on, Ayanaghosha married somebody else also.
