The Offering: The Story of Ekalavya and Dronacharya (Comic)
The Offering: The Story of Ekalavya and Dronacharya (Comic)
Description
Back of the book

The Mahabharta is an abiding collection of stories about the ancient Pandava-Kaurava feud over the Kuru throne. Traditionally, the Pandavas are accepted as the good side but there is one story that drops an ungraceful shadow on that notion the story of Ekalavya. Ekalavya, whose skill in archery could have rescued the Kauravas from defeat. Ekalavya, who gave away his most important asset as guru dakshina so that the guru shishya tradition is not let down.

Ekalavya’s story starts years before the epic battle takes place, when the Pandavas were still learning warfare under Dronacharya. The story begins simply the tribal prince seeks the tutelage of Guru Dronacharya, only to incite the jealously of Arjuna but ends terribly.

Narada, the great rishi, who despises lies but loves trouble, is determined to make this story of Ekalavya live on. And it is on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, where the rectification of injustice was sought at all costs, that he chooses to tell the story.

Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
