Ekalavya is determined to master archery, and goes into the forest. He begins a disciplined program of self-study over many years. Eventually, Ekalavya becomes an archer of exceptional prowess, greater than Drona's best pupil, Arjuna .Drona said, "If I am your guru, then you must give me guru Dakshin" Eklavya replied that he would pay anything Drona asked, to which the guru responded that he wanted the right thumb of Ekalavya. Without hesitation, Ekalavya cut off his thumb and gave it to his guru. Ekalavya later learned to shoot again using only four fingers and left-handed and was a mighty warrior hailed in several places in the Mahabharata .Ekalavya is later killed during a conflict between Krishna and King Jarasandha's army.
