The story revolves around Ekalavya who is a young prince of the Nishadha tribes, and a member of a low caste, who aspires to study archery in the gurukul of Dronacharya. After being rejected by Dronacharya, Ekalavya embarks upon a program of self-study in the presence of a clay image of Dronacharya. He achieves a level of skill equal to that of Arjuna, Drona's favorite and most accomplished pupil. Fearing that Ekalavya will excel him, Arjuna begs Drona to take action. Drona goes to Ekalavya and demands his right thumb as a teacher's fee. The loyal Ekalavya keeping up to the tradition of Guru- Shishya, cuts his thumb and presents it to Drona thereby crippling himself and ruining his prospects as an archer.
