The Story of Eklavya

The Story of Eklavya: Photo by Andrew GarrettFrom this adaptation of the Indian epic, The Mahabharata, comes the story of a boy determined to learn archery. Rejected by the great guru Drona, Eklavya builds a clay idol of him and prays to it as he practises on his own. His skill as an archer brings him to the attention of Drona who asks of Eklavya the ultimate sacrifice. What unfolds is apowerful tale of influence, morality, honour and humility.
