Conflict within the Story
I didn't know how to do a chart so... The external conflict of the story is between the Cobras And Rikki Tikki Tavi. I feel that there isn't really an internal conflict because the story is in third person.
~Primarily found in Africa
~Natural predator of the cobra
~King Cobras can reach up to 18 feet
~20 to 22 species of cobras
~ Cobras are famous for their hoods
Nagaina would tell her story as if she was the victim. She would make things seem like she had no part in the conflict and that Rikki Tikki attacked her for no reason. As most people do when the conflict wasn't resolved the way they wanted it to be, they often play the victim.
Nagaina went through alot in this story and I feel that her character was made to look like a horrible person. But all women would go to the extremes for family. Nagaina would dramatize the story just to make Rikki Tikki look less heroic.
