For the protection of the Dharma on earth, Lord Krishna killed the devil King Shishupal. Lord Krishna was hurt in the war and left with bleeding finger. Seeing his bleeding finger, Draupadi had torn a strip of her saree and tied around his injured finger to stop the bleeding. Lord Krishna has valued to her concern and affection. He felt bounded by her sisterly love & compassion. He pledged to repay the debt of gratitude in her future.
