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.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
