Hindus/eklavya and guru
Is Eklavya in Mahabharat a treachery? How is he seen?
Yes, Eklavya story is treachery for the guru, Dronacharya; and honor and glory for Eklavya for all times that we remember Srimad Bhagawat Purana. It underlines what the down-trodden in India could have achieved, given a chance. Maharshi Vedavyasa must have included the story to bring this point to our attention. The story of Karna also is not much different. He was slighted by Draupadi, though guru Vishwamitra gave him good training. I am sure that the guru Drona must have paid for it with a stay in hell for some time. It was nothing short of criminal to have asked for such a guru-dakshina. With best regards,
