The reasons for Drona's refusal to teach Ekalavya are not entirely accurate. Drona refused to teach Ekalavya due to the latter's caste, and not out of any fear that he would lead an army to attack the "Indo-Aryan" kings or would threaten the Vedic religion. -- Subravenkat. June 02, 2006.

You are wrong. It is not a caste based story. It was simply because Eklavya was a nishada, son of Harinyadhanu. Enemy of Hastinapura. 182.68.209.15 (talk) 00:49, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Why India-Intro reference was killed[edit]

I request editor SpacemanSpiff to help me explain that why is he deleting an important reference from India-intro. I did not find violation of any wikipedia policies in it, may be this respected editor could help me understand it better.--DawnOfTheBlood (talk) 06:26, 17 June 2010 (UTC)


Drona being portryed in Negative Light[edit]

He is not a negative character. He is one of the most positive characters in the whole Mahabharata. His downfall is because of his support and loyalty to kingdom of Hastinapura. The kingdom of hastinapura was pursuing wrong ends by submitting to desires of the corrupt duryodhana. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 182.64.218.189 (talk) 06:19, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
