Sayana Ekadasi ki shubkamnaye Image
Sayana Ekadasi (Ashada Shulka Ekadashi) also known as padma ekadasi is mentioned in Bhavishya Purana. Sri Krishna explains it's significance to Yudhisthira.

There was great king in the Surya Vamsha whose name was Mandhata.
He was religious,pious and Image
treated his subjects as his own family. Even his treasury was free of any I'll gotten money. Everyone was happy under his rule. But some sun happened in his kingdom and there was draught for three years, yajna was impossible due to lack of grains. Jala (water) is utmost Image
Important aspect in this world, even narayana abode is in samudra. Water is some times called Jala Narayana. The king was worries then he approached Angira muni who told him the sin was that some one uninitiated and untrained was performing vedic rituals and he must be killed. Image
The king was in dilemma how could he kill such person without incurring ghora papa(sin),then Angira muni told him that fasting on padma ekadasi would free him of all such sins. Mandhata did it as per instructions and the kingdom was blessed by varuna.
One who observes ekadashi vrata will be bestowed with happiness and attain moksha.
This is start of chatur maasa where Sri Maha Vishnu goes in to yoga nidra hence this ekadasi is known as deva sayana ekadasi

Ekalavya Story has been projected as a case of caste discrimination, even movies that project him as the noble warrior who is a victim of Arjuna/Dronacharya. Many proclaim that the Dronacharya guru Dakshina incident was adharma but Mahabharata denies it categorically
Let's look at the guna of Ekalavya, was he Noble? Ekalavya was an asura Santhanam (which obviously attracted Adharma).
He is said to be the amsha of Asura Krodhavasha
Was ekalavya a nishada or lower caste as purported by pseudo-scholars

According to Harivamsha
He was a Kshatriya,born to devashrava brother of Vasudeva

He was discarded as a bad omen but bought up by nishada (tribals) -Hiranyadhenu(nishada)King

Caste discrimination is the reason projected by missionaries to promote Christianity, in turn it's Missionaries themselves who do it

Christian wells are strategically digged up in front of churches and water is not given to non believers

Draught affected areas are targeted
This is not new discrimination has been highlight of Bible

John 4

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” ( Jews do not associate with Samaritans)
Jews discriminated other castes (tribes) look at next verse
Acts 11:3

You went into the house of uncircumcised men and ate with them.

Jews did not even consider other castes as humans forget about treating them equally
We will see this in the next verse
