Synopsis of the story:

In this week Bheema went to get Draupadi a very beautiful lotus with 1,000 petals. Bheema as he was walking by he met a monkey who Bheema even with all his strength could not move to go to the pond where the lotus stood. The monkey was no other than Hanuman, brother of Bheema (their father is Vayu, the wind god). Bheema tells Hanuman about what is going on and about the Pandava’s thirteen years of exile by Duryodhana. Hanuman then promises that he will help the Pandava’s in their fight. 

On his way to the pond, he came across a python named Nahusha. Bheema and Nahusha had a fight but nobody won. The python then told Bheema that he was cursed to become a snake by Sage Agastya. The curse could only be uplifted only when all his questions on Dharma were answered. Yudhishtira came searching for Bheema and he answered all of Nahusha’s questions and Nahusha's curse was lifted.  Finally Bheema got the lotus and gave it to Draupadi.

Now Duryodhana went to see how the Pandava’s were suffering miserably and he wanted to show off all his pleasures so he set up camp near the Pandava’s with his whole army he set up his camp near a river where a Gandharva named Chitrasena was staying. The Gandharvas told him to move away but Duryodhana did not listen and Chitrasena took him and held him prisoner. The Pandava’s rescued Duryodhana but Duryodhana was so embarrassed that he would have killed himself. Finally Shakuni and Karna managed to convince Duryodhana to go back to Hastinapura.
