Eklavya is one of the most prominent characters of the Mahabharata. In the epic, he donates his thumb to Dronacharya as a Gurudakshina. After doing this, Eklavya went into a state of darkness. But, he never gave up. He learnt archery with the help of his left hand as the thumb that he had donated was that of his right hand. He went onto become one of the chief dukes of Jarasandra. After many years, he makes a comeback in Dwaraka to fight against the Yadavas. His skills as an archer were quite refined by this time and he fought courageously. In the war of Mahabharata he fought in the side of Duryodhana. Later he makes an appearance during Rukmini Haran. During the progress of Rukmini’s wedding arrangements, he tries to stop Krishna from eloping with Rukmini and that’s when Krishna kills him. But, there are also sayings that Krishna was so impressed with Eklavya for his Gurudakshina that he had blessed him to reincarnate and take revenge on Dronacharya and this did happen. It is believed that Eklavya came back as Dhristadyumna by whom Dronacharya gets killed.

Indeed, sometimes it is interesting to read the inspirational stories. Some of the characters become memorable. Each and every character of this epic is very complex and also, there is a deep meaning attached to every character. It acts as guidance for living life for all of us with its all-pervading messages.
