Looks like Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli is passé as India has found its own version of Mowgli. That’s right! In what sounds like totally bizarre, Lucknow has got its own Mowgli. Recently, an eight-year-old girl has been found living with monkeys and unable to walk or talk like humans, it has emerged.

Looks like the fine line between fiction and non-fiction has blurred because Mowgli, the man-cub protagonist of Kipling’s The Jungle Book, reared by wolves has become reality. Yes, cops in Bahraich district, 200 km from Lucknow, relived a Mowgli moment in the jungles of the district.  

The girl, without clothes, was conspicuously comfortable among the apes and she walked on all fours and screeched at rescuers like an ape. When the cops spotted the girl, they tried to rescue the girl from a troop of monkeys in Bahraich district, 200 km from Lucknow. Soon after, she was immediately admitted to the district hospital.

In an interview to a leading daily, the sub-inspector was quoted as saying, “We spotted her playing among apes. As we tried to go near the girl, the monkeys surrounded her and some of them pounced on us,” adding, “The treatment is proving to be a difficult task for the doctors as she does not understand anything and makes noises and faces like monkeys, and attacks the doctors when they approach her.”  

On bringing her to the hospital, doctors discovered that she had wounds all over her body so much so that her nails and hair were unkempt just like monkeys.

Due to her idiosyncrasies, the eight-year-old girl has been dubbed Mowgli. Doesn’t the story bear striking similarities with The Jungle Book, the famous Mowgli who is raised by wolves?

I love that a Juvenile centre was the best they could do. She was better off with the monkeys.

How inconsiderate to reduce the life of the 8 year old to that of a fictional character. She shouldnt become some kind of attraction for uneducated Indians fascinated by these stories. Bad post Upasana.
