Dhristadyumna places two conditions in the competition of Draupadi Swayamvar. The first was to lift up the heavy bow and the second was to target fish eye, looking at its reflection. None of Kshatriyas assembled in the ampitheatre could make that feat. Finally, Karna comes and he was denied by Draupadi, since he was not a kshatriya. When Karna left, Brahmanas were called and among them Arjuna came out. Later with Duryodhana's provocation, all kshatriyas attacked Drupada, but Bhima Arjuna baffled everyone.
