“The series seemed to be interesting to the children who heard the stories of the book. They loved it. The future generations will love the book too”, say few elderly people. This series is now printed in many dialects, and many versions were created and publicized in many other countries.
There are 14 chapters present in the entire book. Each chapter is related to the previous one. The male protagonist is “Mowgli”, who is introduced as a rascal boy at the beginning of the novel. Mowgli has been an all time favorite hero of every kid at every house. The name of the book and its author is now known all over the world. Today more than three fourth of the world is aware of Rudyard Kipling because of this marvelous book which he has written.
There were so many adaptations which took place after the making the book known to the public. There were many comics written on the basis of the book. Many companies came forth to publish the editions and versions of the work of Rudyard Kipling. Walt Disney animations also took up the responsibility of releasing few animated movies like “Mowgli” based on the stories of Rudyard. Also there were many adaptations in Television, dramas et cetera.
It is very surprising to note that Rudyard before his decease writes that he had stolen the incidents of the story from elsewhere. He stipulates that he was not even aware from where he had stolen. But these were and are never taken into consideration because of the grand success and the triumph of the book. Praise GOD for the author’s honesty!
Therefore everyone is advised to read the book to know about few Jungle facts and to lead an adventurous life – like Mowgli. Reading reveals understanding and refreshes the mind.
