The bizarre discovery made in Central India during the British Rule was in the jungles of Seoni near Jabalpur. The village was called Sant Vavadi, and the wolf child was found by Lt. Moor. The story traveled far and wide and found mention in some of the acclaimed literature of those times. Eventually it reached Rudyard Kipling who was born in India and had become an acclaimed author at a young age. Using his amazing creativity and imagination he crafted an intriguing tale of life in jungles of Seoni Hills.
The escapades of Mowgli and the wolf pack still reside in our memory lanes, and the amazing narration fascinates one and all. Kipling wrote the accounts in his novel called "Jungle Book". It was the film called Jungle Book made much later which made the character of wolf child a global entity. The jungles are now protected for the sake of Sher Khan, Baloo, Baghira and the lot. Now called Pench Tiger Reserve the characters of Jungle Book spring alive on an enchanting journey to Pench.
