The RSS newspaper,Organiser,said that the author had taken undue licence with Draupadi's character and was guilty of "semi porn and derision". One hears of co-wives fighting over their husband's affection. Did the husbands fight over Draupadi? The epic does not explicitly discuss this,but the possibility of jealously tearing the brothers apart is repeatedly alluded to.
The sage Narada warns the Pandava brothers of conflict that can destroy their bond. Narada suggests that they make careful bedroom arrangements to allow equal and exclusive access to each husband for a limited period of time. Any brother who enters her chamber when she is with another husband will have to perform penance.
Arjuna does stumble in once while she is in the arms of Yudhishtira and so has to go on a pilgrimage to atone. During this 'pilgrimage', he ends up with three more wives.
Every brother has exclusive rights to Draupadi's chamber for a year, and then has to wait for four years for the next turn. Why one whole year? Perhaps because it gave Draupadi enough time to bear a child for that husband without any paternity issues.
She bore each of her husbands a son. Before she moves to the next husband,Draupadi walks through fire to regain her virginity and purity. Such rules were never placed before polygamous husbands. But Draupadi had a rule of her own for her husbands.
She makes it very clear to her husbands that they cannot bring any other wife into the same house. Thus all the Pandavas have other wives, but these wives stay with their parents and the Pandavas have to travel out of the city to visit their other wives in the four years that Draupadi is intimate with the other brothers.
The only exception is made for Krishna's sister, Subhadra, who marries Arjuna. In a dialogue with Krishna's wife, Satyabhama,Draupadi explains how she serves her husbands, satisfies their needs and makes herself indispensable, and loved. Draupadi comes across as a practical woman who knows she has to work to ensure all her husbands love her and do not feel she favours any one of them. Stories are told of how Draupadi came to have five husbands.

Whom did Arjuna loved, Draupadi or Subhadra – Bewitchingly Paranoid
Another story tells us that she asked Shiva for a husband who was noble and strong, skilled with the bow, handsome and wise. Since no single man could possess all five traits, Shiva gave her five husbands, each with one trait. Yet, This woman with five husbands is dragged into court and disrobed in public. She wonders why this happened to her. A folklore states that Krishna had sent the perfect husband for her - one who would love and protect her all her life and be faithful to her.
His name was Karna, but she rejected him because of his low caste. So, she ended up marrying a man who shared her with his brothers and failed to protect her when she needed him most. On the way back from the court, Bhima and Arjuna decided to play a prank on their mother, Kunti, and introduced Draupadi as alms.
Sometimes we arrive at our life’s purpose through marriage; like Subhadra for instance
Kunti made the mistake of asking them to share the alms with their brothers. Thus, as respect for their mother, Draupadi was taken as wife by all the five Pandavas: Draupadi had special relationship with her husbands.
Besides being a wife, Draupadi had a cordial friendship with Yudhisthira and they counseled each other frequently. Yudhisthira listened to her council in areas of politics and running of his kingdom. He had lengthy conversations with Draupadi about Dharma where they did not see eye to eye Bhawalkar Yudhisthira staked Draupadi on a game of dice with Kauravas, which he lost.
It was at this time he describes her beauty, which shows how much he adored her. She is not too short, nor is she too large; nor is she too dark nor is her complexion red.
She has eyes reddened from passion. I will stake her—whose eyes and fragrance are like autumnal lotuses. Attached to modesty, she is, in beauty, equal to Sri, the goddess of beauty. Were a man to desire a woman, she would be like this one, on account of her kindness; she would be like this one, on account of her beautiful figure; she would be like this one, on account of her perfect character.
She is the last to sleep and first to awaken. She knows everything, down to the jobs both completed and not yet done by the cowherds and shepherds. Like the jasmine flower, the mallika is she; with her perspiring face she appears similar to a lotus.
