Draupadi, also known as Panchali, is one of the most important women in the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata. She was the daughter of King Drupada of Panchala. Draupadi was the wife of 5 Pandavas. Today we are going to tell you about a secret related to Draupadi.
Draupadi loved Arjun the most among the 5 Pandavas. During the 12th year of the exile of the Pandavas, Draupadi and the Pandavas were in a forest where Draupadi was seen hanging berries on a tree that she broke. She was about to eat them when Lord Krishna reached there. He said that a Brahmin was about to break his 12-year fast with these fruits and now he can curse you.
On hearing this, Draupadi asked Krishna the remedy, then he told that you all speak the truth one by one. This fruit will go up and if someone lies, the fruit will not go up and you will have to fall prey to the curse of the Brahmin.
Yudhishthira started and said that whatever happened to Pandavas is responsible for Draupadi. As soon as he said this, the fruits rose slightly.
Bhima said that his attachment to food, fight, sleep, and lust never diminishes. He continued that he would kill all the sons of Dhritarashtra but he had great reverence for Yudhishthira. But whoever insults his mace will kill him. As soon as he said this, the fruit went up further.
Arjun said, "I will not kill Karna in battle till then the purpose of my life will not be fulfilled." From this the fruit went up further.
Nakula and Sahadeva also told the same truth and the fruits kept growing. Finally Draupadi's left came when she said that my five husbands are like my five senses (eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and body). But I am upset because of my misfortune. Despite being educated, I regret what I did. On saying this, the fruits did not rise.
After this Draupadi said that I love all five of you but I love Karna the most, but due to caste, I could not get married to Karna. Hearing this, the five Pandavas were surprised and the fruit went back to the tree.
