Unable to access droplets using private Ip (both droplets belong to same VPC)

I am able to ping both the public and private IP from a another droplet.
But can only telnet to publicip but not private Ip on a given port.


telnet <publicip> 5432   - WORKS 

telnet <privateip> 5432   - DOESNT WORK 

Any idea why ?

Figured out the reason .
The Private IP was not bound to the database.
