Abstract

Rudyard Kipling was an English author who was born in Bombay in 1865. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1907. Kiplingʼs ʻThe Jungle Bookʼ is a collection of stories. The most popular character in these stories is Mowgli, a ʻman cubʼ, who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. The Mowgli syndrome refers to feral children who, during their developmental years, have lacked proper care or human contact.
