The story of a bird turning four Pandava brothers to stone and Yudhisthira saving them by answering its question is found in the Kashidashi Mahabharata. The incident happened when Pandavas were on their final journey after giving up their kingdom. During their journey in the Himalayas, the Pandavas witnessed Danaveshwar form of Shiva.

These desires are not needs but society and culture makes a person believe that they are essential. Modern economy is based on greed not on need. People are constantly tuned to buy more and more.
