But, he studied in England at the United Services College
He returned to India in 1882 to work for Anglo-American
newspapers; this launched his literary career.
He became well-known as a writer of short-stories (like
Obreht; coincidence?).

AWARDS & HONORS "For Kipling, India was a wondrous place. Along with his younger sister, Alice, he reveled in exploring the local markets with his nanny. He learned the language, and in the bustling city of Anglos, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Jews, Kipling fell in love with the country and its culture." (biography.com)

Rudyard Kipling was also very close to his mother, and had a very hard time when he was sent away at the age of 6 to study in England and live with a foster family, as his mother wanted her son to receive a formal education.

"Kipling's solace came in books and stories." (biography.com) THE JUNGLE BOOK & the Cub Scouts THE JUNGLE BOOK became used by the Cub Scouts as a motivational book, due to the morals present in its stories.

For example, the name of the head wolf, Akela, is the name commonly taken by the leader of every Cub Scout pack. In 1907 he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the prize.

In 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature.
And of course, as many of us are familiar with, Walt Disney Productions decided to create an animated film, inspired by Kipling's characters, such as Mowgli, in 1967.
It was also the last Disney film to be produced by Walt Disney. Lastly,
"If" by Rudyard Kipling "If" is a poem Kipling wrote as advice to his son John, in 1910. What other parallels/similarities do you see between the authors Tea Obreht and Rudyard Kipling, and/or their stories? Conclusion Summary of MOWGLI'S BROTHERS

"It is the story of the orphaned boy, Mowgli, who is adopted by a pack of wolves and must learn how to live in the jungle with the pack. The tale is rich in self-exploration and the search for personal identity.

The story exemplifies the struggle between Mowgli’s learned traits as a wolf and his innate traits as a man. The two mutually exclusive identities create great difficulty for Mowgli as he attempts to be both what he is by birth and what he has become in the jungle. Through his attention to the Law of the Jungle, Mowgli is proven a worthy member of the pack. Yet, through his innate human faculties, he possesses a power that is enviable among the jungle creatures. In the polar characteristics of Mowgli’s complex identity as wolf and man, Kipling constructs a didactic framework from which he delivers lessons and morals."
