Sage Durvasa, the son of sage Atri, once went to Indraloka (Abode of Indra) to meet Indra. On his way to Indra’s palace, Durvasa met Indra riding on his elephant Airavat and presented him a garland of Parijat flowers. The careless Indra did not notice the garland which the elephant stepped on. This came to the notice of the sage and made him extremely angry.
He cursed Indra that as he has become arrogant about enjoying a lot of wealth and prosperity, he will soon turn into a pauper. Soon, Durvasa’s curse began to have its effect, Goddess Lakshmi left Indra and signs of poverty began to appear. Indra, along with other deities visited Brahma to seek his help who again visited Vishnu for a solution to get relieved of poverty.
