Authored by Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book narrates the story of a ‘man-cub’ Mowgli, who grows up in the jungle among wild animals.
Mowgli was brought to Jungle by the black panther Bagheera, brought to the jungle when he was an infant, took care of him and taught him etiquette of living in Jungle.
“Only in the real India could Bagheera come alive like he did in the Jungle Book! Just amazing,” a user tweeted.
“What a beauty. At least once in a life time, everyone should experience nature,” another comment said.
