Once, Yudhishthir was chasing a deer, and the chase made him tired and thirsty. He sent his youngest brother Nakul to find a river nearby, and bring him water.
 
Nakul found a river, but as soon as he bent down to drink some water, a crane warned him that the water would turn poisonous if he drank without answering Yaksha's question, who was the custodian of the river.
