Today I am going to tell you a story of the merciful god Krishna
Once upon a time there was a gambling match between Pandavas and Kauravas . Because of shakuni’s bad intentions pandavas lost everything they had . Finally, they brought Draupadi in the match after some time pandavas lost draupadi also in the gambling match Draupadi was in terrible pain and tears were flowing out of her eyes. Bhishma , Drona and Kripacharya stood helplessly hanging their heads down in shame.
When suddenly the furious Bheem roared and said that he wants to have the dirty hands of Dushasan who touched Draupadi’s hair cut.
Duryodan got and angry and said that they had won Draupadi in the game dice so she is their maid now. He ordered Dushasan to rip off Draupadi’s clothes. Draupadi pleaded everyone to protect her from being disrobed but no one dared to come forward to the helpless Draupadi’s rescue.Draupadi had no other hope. Draupadi started to call Krishna and was saying Krishna you are my only hope,please protect me”
Dushasan started pulling Draupadi’s saree. The only help she got was the invisible Sri Krishna who made Draupadi’s saree so long that it could never end. Dushasan got tired pulling the saree and soon fainted.
In this way Lord Sri Krishna showed mercy on Draupadi.
