In the Mahabharata, Ekalavya was the son of Hiranyadhanus, who was in Bhil Family King Jarasandha’s army commander and leader of the Nishadhas. Ekalavya was hurt when he was rejected by Dronacharya. Ekalavya still didn’t give up on his resolute will to master archery. He once stayed hidden in the forest while guru Drona was teaching the Kaurava and Pandava brothers, after they left to the ashram, Ekalavya collected the mud on which his Guru walked, as a symbolic gesture of want to follow his knowledge and foot steps, later he went into the forest and made a statue of Drona under a big old well grown tree. He began a disciplined program of self-study over many years. Eventually, Ekalavya became an archer of exceptional prowess, greater than Drona’s best pupil, Arjuna. He accepted the statue as his guru and practiced in front of it every single day.
