A student's distinction lies in his devout pursuit of knowledge, and not merely in his heritage. This manifests in a
splendid manner in Ekalavya's life. He worshipped an idol of his 'Guru', learnt his lessons in archery in the
Master's absence, and mastered the art. When his master desired the thumb of Ekalavya's right hand as a fee
which might cripple him, Ekalavya's smilingly sacrificed it. A boy who had grown up I the forest thus developed
into a great personality a fine example for other to emulate.
