Guru Drona: Guru of Great archer Eklavya
A great archer of the time of Mahabharata Eklavya had made an idol when he was denied to be made a disciple by Guru Drona. He worshipped his idol in the early morning when he was ready to learn archery. Only the idol inspired him so much that he became a great archer possibly more powerful than Arjun. Guru Drona when came to know about this he asked dakshina, a gift given at the end of one’s learning. Guru asked his right thumb so that he could no longer practice archery. However, to Drona’s great surprise Eklavya cut his thumb without waiting for a second. This was the real dakshina. This incident made him one of the renowned archers and a great disciple of Guru Drona
