    Eklaiva had to loose his thumb for learning archery himself ;It is very worse that a story was developed around this tragedy as if he himself donated his thumb as the fees to his guru though he did not teach Eklaiva . This story was knitted so that the next generations also would accept and would not revenge on cutting thumb .Here the cutter was ruling class and looser was tribe .
    Sambugan was killed by Rama for taking Tabas as he was a backward class
    These tribes and backward class men were not allowed to learn for want of labours .And if they learn and get knowledge they won't obey the lords .For generations this is taking different forms to block men from getting knwledge ; It is continuing still .Its modern form is private schooling.If u have money u can learn .Others go to govt schools where care will be taken the pupils not to learn much .To hide this we will bring a law and satirically it will be named as Right to Education Law .It is the policy of the ruling class all the time .Hence the illiteracy .
