If my story starts

anywhere, it starts when I was a kid.

My family took me on a trip to one

of the most beautiful spots in India,

the Waingunga River.

Do you see that little guy?

Yeah, the cute one.

That's me, Mowgli.

I didn't know it then. I didn't know

much about anything,

but I was about to have an adventure

that would change my life forever.

Come on, son. There you go.

This is the story

of how a boy became a man-cub,

and how that man-cub

became a man.

Even though this is my story,

it's not all about me,

it's also about my friends,

the animals. Take a look.

It really is a jungle out there.

Hathi, look! I have

the whole watering hole to myself.

It's too good to be true.

- You got that right.

Jungle meeting. Calling all

carnivores and interested parties.


Gather round!

Honey, Hathi's called a meeting.

- Let's go, dear.

Last one there's a monkey's uncle.

I am a monkey's uncle.

Wait up, guys!

I'm gaining on you.

- Thirsty chimp. Move aside.

Watch out for his trunk!

- Don't step on me.

Careful. You wouldn't want

a squished chimp.

Let's go. Surf's up.

Look at me. I'm a genuine statue.

I got you!

- No bathing.

We have to drink that water.

- Now he tells us.

I give up. Let's start, OK?

Are we all here?

Alright, I'm here.

Last, but I'm last for everything.

Last one to kill. Last one to eat.


- That's my name.


- First time I heard that one.

Time to remind you all

of our dry-season rule.

Until the rains return,

any meals eaten by the watering hole

shall be vegetarian.


- Good rule.

Gotta love it.

Any hunting by the watering hole

will over my dead body.

Hathi, don't torture me.

No hunting here? That law bites.

We should be able to hunt

when and where we want.

Wolves rule,

and we're not afraid of anybody.

Oh, yeah?

- Whoa, look out!

It's Shere Khan!

Well, well. Who shall I eat today?

Maybe I'll grab a couple of dogs.

Talk about your fast food.

Shut up, Tabaqui.

- Sorry.

Monkey burgers.

- We're fat. We're pure fat.

Maybe an elephant stew for two?

We'll get stuck in your teeth.

With a side of turtle soup.


- Try the clam chowder.

How about a bowl of Chilli?

- Later!

Didn't you hear me?

There's no hunting...

Shut your trunk. I heard you.

I shall do as I please.

Listen, tiger, if we're all going

to live in peace...


Berry breath, go suck a beehive.

Nice sidekick. A hyaena

that laughs at his own dumb jokes.

Mind your own business.

You're my business.

I'll be watching you.

We'll all be watching you.

Don't get your fur in a bunch.

I'm not in the mood forjungle food.

No, I have a craving for Indian food.

I get it. You want to eat an Indian.

That's clever. That's rich.

That's the cat's meow.

Tabaqui! Put a cork in it.

Let's get ready to tango.

I love this job.

You hunters are so overrated.

I'll never forget that night.

People were running everywhere,

for their guns, for their lives.

All I wanted to do

was find my parents.

But instead...

- A-ha!

The tiger found me.

Well, aren't you

a cute little appetiser?

When he fixed me

with those big fiery yellow eyes,

I figured I was a goner.

You must be the son of a hunter.

How deliciously ironic.

It was like,

"Wow! Welcome to the food chain. "

There's the tiger.

- Get him!

Boss? They're packing heat.

I won't forget you, brown eyes.

Oh, no! They got the boss!

Come on, he's only wounded.

After Shere Khan ran off,

the smart thing would have been

to stay by the safety of the fire.

But I was just a kid, right?

So I took off down the trail

trying to find my parents.

Rudyard Kipling

Joseph Rudyard Kipling ( RUD-yərd; 30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature, and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the British Empire, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known." In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize and its youngest recipient to date. He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined.Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him continued for much of the 20th century. George Orwell saw Kipling as "a jingo imperialist", who was "morally insensitive and aesthetically disgusting". Literary critic Douglas Kerr wrote: "[Kipling] is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognised as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with." more…
