Character of the Day: EKALAVYA

EKALAVYA was a Nishada man of the forest who wanted to study with Drona. Drona rejected him, so Ekalavya trained, honoring a statue of Drona as his guru. When he came to pay the guru-dakshina, Drona saw Ekalavya's great skill as a threat to Arjuna, so he demanded Ekalavya's thumb as payment.
