Ekalavya is a very teensy character in the events of Mahabharata who proved that the best learning doesnt need a room or an authority figure but comes from within.
Ekalavya was the son of a Tribal chief who wanted to learn archery from Dronacharya, a great guru of those times but he was teaching only the royal princes of Pandavas and Kauravas in his ashram. When Ekalavya approached Dronacharya and requested him to teach archery, he refused saying that he only teaches royal princes or people of similar cadre. Ekalavya was heartbroken. Yet he was determined to practice archery; he made a statue of Dronacharya in clay and started practicing archery by himself. With time, numerous efforts and strong determination he became a master of archery. He showed an act of extreme devotion when he readily cut off his thumb while he was asked for Guru Dakshina.
With practice, Eklavya could shoot arrows with his index and middle finger and he became an agile archer. When Dronacharya became aware of this, he blessed the boy silently. Even today when people talk about the ideal student Ekalavya is remembered as the most loyal and bravest of all.
