The event of the Mahabharata that I chose to represent one of the characteristics that 
we were given is the part when Dronacharya tells Ekalavya that he cannot be trained with the 
Pandavas and the Kauravas. Representing righteousness and loyalty Ekalavya makes a 
promise. Although he was denied, he showed determination and compassion for being an 
archer, by secretly practicing in the woods, and watching Dronacharya. He shows devotion, 
when he makes a statue of Dronacharya. Once Dronacharya sees what Ekalavya can do, he 
sees his excellence for archery. He lastly shows sacrifice, when asked to cut off his right 
thumb and give it to Dronacharya as a guru dakshina.

Characteristics Ekalavya represented in this event:

Righteousness
Loyalty
Devotion
Promise
Determination
Excellence
Compassion
Sacrifice
