According to Bhavishya Purana, it is said that, After the war between the god and demons, demons start to rule over the god, and panicked Indra go to the Bhrispati for help, Indrani (wife of Indra) listened to the conversation Indrani redeemed a silk thread with the power of mantras and tied it to the wrist of Indra on the day of Shravan Purnima. It was believed that Indra won because of the silk thread.
