The Law For The Wolves
We Celebrate The Jungle Book As Rudyard Kipling Turns 150
Happy Birthday, Mr Kipling. To mark the occasion, we take a look at a few little-known facts about his much loved collection of jungle stories...
This month marks 150 years since the birth of popular writer, Rudyard Kipling, in Mumbai. To celebrate this milestone, we look back at his most treasured work – and a children’s classic: The Jungle Book.
There is something special about Kipling’s tales of a young feral boy called Mowgli, raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. Over a century later, its exoticism has lost none of its appeal. These short stories are essentially moral fables for children, ‘The Laws of the Jungle’ an allegory for individual morality within the wider community. Contrary to kater adaptations, it’s an intense read.
And yet, thanks to the 1967 Disney Classic, its playfulness always wins out. We still can’t resist singing ‘The Bare Necessities’ whenever we think of Baloo the Bear.
To celebrate, we decided to find out some little known facts about the 1894 classic:
1. The Scouts Love It
The Jungle Bookhas been used as a motivational text by the Club Scouts for some time now. In fact, the Scouts founder personally asked Kipling’s permission to use one of the stories to help motivate fitness. Akela, the head wolf inThe Jungle Book, is also the name given to every Scout pack leader.
