About Ekalavya Foundation
Ekalavya, a Bhil youth being denied of teaching archery skill by a Guru, loyal to princes of the State, took the task by his own and mastered the art better than the princely pupils of the Guru. It was because of the fact that the tribal boy had tremendous innate potential, inherent skill, talent and a fire in him. Watching the princes taking the training activated him too to discover the art with more vigour and precision.
Komaram Bheem was another stalwart Gond tribe who fought for the freedom and rights of the tribal community. More than half a century has passed and the struggle still continues with very little visible difference. There exists no drought of Ekalavyas and Komaram Bheems in the tribes which account to roughly 8.2 percent of Indian population and just above six percent of Andhra Pradesh’s population according to 2001 census.
