|Yudhisthira had lost everything to the cheating Duryodhana and Shakuni in a game of dice; his wealth, his kingdom, his brothers, his rights, finally his wife, Draupadi. On Duryodhana's orders, Dushashana dragged Draupadi by the hair into the assembly, and in front of her five husbands (the Pandavas: Yudhisthira, Arjuna, Bhima, Nakula and Sahadeva) and all the Kurus, he began to pull off her clothes. The Pandavas were helpless. She pleaded to her elders in the assembly one after another to stop this injustice, but no one came to her aid. Finally, Draupadi threw up her hands in complete surrender to Lord Krishna. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, supplied her with unlimited cloth. Dushashana pulled and pulled, but Draupadi's modesty was protected by the Lord.
