So she went to Bali and discussed as a Brahmin woman and taken refuge in his palace. On Shravana purnima, she tied Rakhi on King Bali's wrist. Goddess Lakshmi revealed who she is and why she is there.

Please read the story given on the above site.
When thee was a battle between Sur and Asur, Indra was about to be defeated; he approached the Guru Brihaspati. The Indrani wife of Indra then tied a silk thread around the wrist of Indria. The beginning of the festival was by a wife for the welfare of her husband.
