Eklavya: [narrating the epic of Eklavya] Eklavya was a low caste warrior of unsurpassable skills. When Eklavya outclassed the royal princes in the art of archery, the man he had idolized as his mentor, the great guru Dronacharya, asked of him a terrible gift in return for his tutelage: his right thumb. The reason behind this macabre act was simple: Dronacharya did not wish to have his royal pupils be surpassed in archery by a person from the lower caste. Eklavya, confronted by this manifestly unjust demand, did not cringe. Believing that his mentor's command was his dharma and sacred duty, he severed his right thumb and offered it at the feet of his guru.
