Summary: This elaborate legend, very much like a fairy tale, is told in the Mahabharata and it has many points of comparison with the adventures of Draupadi and her husbands. A supernatural swan carries news of King Nala to Princess Damayanti, and she resolves to marry him. When Nala loses everything in a gambling match, Damayanti goes with him into the forest where he abandons her. It is only after many trials and tribulations that they are finally reunited. You can read more about this famous story at Wikipedia.
