According to Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna had accidentally cut his finger with the Sudarshan chakra. Draupadi had put a piece of cloth to end the bleeding. Her act touched Lord Krishna, and in return, he decided to protect her. When the Kauravas tried to humiliate her during the Chirharan event, Lord Krishna came and saved her from dishonour.
