Story when Duryodhana says he will not even give “five needlepoints of land” to the Pandavas

In a final attempt at securing peace, Krishna returns with the Pandavas’ final proposal: the Pandavas would give up all claims to Indraprastha and Hastinapur in exchange for five villages. Scoffing, Duryodhana says he will not even give “five needlepoints of land” to the Pandavas. Duryodhana, in some versions of the story an outright atheist, brushes off the incident, not convinced of Krishna’s divinity, and believing that strength of arms, not philosophy, would win him a war.
