Rupyard Kipling

Rupyard's is the Author of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. His family moved when he was younger, the reason they moved to India was to help the British government to run the place. Later in life, he was sent to England to get an eduction, so his family stayed in India and he lived with a foster family for the time being. He wrote many books, including Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Some other stories that he wrote were Kim, Captain Courageous, Stalky and Co and Etc.

Conflict Within the Story

The general Conflict within the story is a fight between Nag and Nagaina. They are angered when a family, along with a mongoose, start living in a bungalow located in THEIR garden.


Mongooses are primarily located in Africa, but also live in Hawaii and much of the West Indies. They can grow to be 7 inches, to 2 feet long. Brown or Grey with striped fur, these animals usually live in burrows. They attack and eat snake eggs, but usually eat small animals.


Cobras can reach 18 feet in length and can "stand up" to look like a person. They live in India and China. Their hiss sound like a growling dog and their venomous bite can kill up to 20 people. They are the only snakes in the world that build nests for their eggs and they are well known by snake charmers.

Nagaina's Version of the Story

Nagaina's version of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi would differ very much from Rupyard Kipling's. It would speak of her anger and disgust for the people and the mongoose and how her husband died, and it would go into greater detail about how they had planned to kill the family and it would show more of Nagaina's emotions about the situation and her husband's death.
