One day when Drona and his students were going out into the forest, Arjuna saw a dog that was unable to bark due to an amazing construction of arrows in and all around his mouth. This construction was harmless to the dog, but prevented the dog from barking. Drona was amazed, but also distressed: he had promised Arjuna that he would make him the greatest archer in the world. Drona and his students investigated, and came upon Eklavya. Upon seeing Drona, Ekalavya came and bowed to him.
Drona asked Eklavya where he had learnt archery. Eklavya replied “under you, Guruji”, and showed Drona his statue while explaining what he had done.
