Indra dev and Indrani. Once there was a fierce battle between the gods and the demon. Lord Indra fights on the side of the god. It was very difficult to win from the powerful demon. The war continued for a long time. Seeing this, Indra’s wife Indrani went to Lord Vishnu there and told her everything about the war and Lord Vishnu gave her a holy thread made up of cotton. She then tied the holy thread on her husband’s wrist. Lord Indra defeated the demon and recovered the amaravati.
