Mahabharata and Ramayana are the epics which have had an everlasting impact on the folklore and painting of Mithila. The episodes that they choose to depict have social relevance.

Stating the premise of the narrative, the Pandavas, seen on the lower right corner playing a game of chess, are married to Draupadi, center of the on going drama. The Pandavas lose their empire and everything they own to Duryodhana in a game of dice (gambling). Duryodhana is their cousin and also the contender for the kingdom. The Pandavas finally put their wife on stake and lose her too. Duryodhana seen on the extreme left, starts pulling off her clothes, in order to further humiliate the brothers. Draupadi pleads to all those present, but none can help. Eventually she seeks the help of Krishna. Duryodhana keeps pulling off the clothes and Krishna keeps adding more, so that the former couldn't unclothe Draupadi. Krishna thus saved her from humiliation. In this manner, the artist wants to stress on the steady faith we have in the Divine & be sure, like Draupadi that He will help in time of distress. The actual scene perhaps took place in the confines of the palace, but the artist here wishes to set it amongst trees and flowers.
