Once, Jyamadh took part in a fierce battle in which he defeated all his enemies. While he was about to return, he heard  pitiable  cries  of  a  woman.  He  saw  a  beautiful  young  lady  who  was  crying  for  her protection. Jyamadh was so infatuated by her beauty that he took her to his kingdom. When they reached at the gate of the palace, the king saw that the queen Shaivya was waiting for him along with a big crowd. When Shaivya saw a beautiful young lady sitting beside the king on the chariot, she began to shout at him. The horrified king tried to explain that the young lady was his daughter-in-law. The queen shouted even louder that when they did not have a son, whence the daughter-in-law came. But the king explained that he had selected a wife for her would-be son.
