visited any central Indian forest that he would go on to immortalise in Jungle Book wrote the book while living in USA Related News Mowgli the “man-cub” of the Seonee wolf pack in Rudyard Kipling’s fabled works — The Jungle Book (1894) and The Second Jungle Book (1895) — is perhaps among the most iconic fictional characters ever created Mowgli evokes a sense of wonder and curiosity among readers as well as those who have only known him through the 1967 Disney film or the recent stunning Jon Favreau version or closer home through Doordarshan’s The Jungle Book (the Hindi dubbed version of the internationally acclaimed Japanese anime series) Was he real Did a boy like him really exist in some remote Indian forest living with the wolves gambolling with a bear watched over by a black panther frolicking with sundry denizens of the forest and hounded by the king of the jungle the tiger Could Kipling’s story have been a fictionalised account of some real-life incident Kipling who never visited Seoni (orSivni as the locals call it) or any other central Indian forest that he would go on to immortalise wrote the book while living in USA He is said to have derived inspiration for the book’s setting and animal characters primarily from the works of Robert Armitage Sterndale a pioneer naturalist sportsman artist writer and among the earliest editors of the Journal of Bombay Natural History Society (JBNHS) especially from his little-known book Seonee or Camp Life on the Satpura Range (1887) However where did the inspiration for Mowgli come from Kipling himself never disclosed if there was a back story but what if I told you that there exist many little-known perplexing and completely forgotten real-life accounts of “feral children” written by colonial administrators and sportsmen A bulk of these accounts if not all were written before Kipling took up writing some even pre-dating his birth by decades However as mysterious and baffling these accounts may be almost all of them are sad stories of suffering — a far-cry from the happy-go-lucky Mowgli story The Mowgli Files The subject of “feral children” gained significant traction throughout the world after Kipling’s book and while a number of cases were reported from all over the globe India accounted for the maximum number of cases Perhaps the most well-known and widely published case was that of Amala and Kamala sisters claimed to be have been recovered from a wolf-den in 1920 in undivided Bengal’s Midnapore district by a local orphanage priest Joseph Amrito Lal Singh However soon after the news broke anthropologists and doctors cast doubts on its veracity Eventually a French surgeon proved that it was an elaborate hoax where the two girls with neuro-developmental disorders had been exploited to raise funds for the orphanage But for every Amala-Kamala hoax there are more than a dozen other unexplained long-forgotten accounts of “feral children” — from wolf-children of the plains to the “panther-child of Assam” and the “bear-girl” of Bengal — mostly from the mid to late 19th century that remain unexplained and little-known The earliest accounts of wolf-children from India comes from a small obscure pamphlet published from Plymouth England titled An Account of Wolves Nurturing Children in Their Dens by an Indian Official (1851) Its author legendary British soldier-administrator Sir William Henry Sleeman — the man who is singlehandedly believed to have ended the secret murderous cult of Thuggee and has a town to his name in Sleemanabad — was according to his grandson Sir James Sleeman a well-known sportsman and writer “quite the last man to be taken in by any cock-and-bull story of wolf-children” This pamphlet had detailed six cases of wolf-children excerpts of which were later reproduced in Sleeman’sJourney through the kingdom of Oude in 1848-1850 (1858) All but one of Sleeman’s wolf-children were captured around “Sultanpoor” (present day Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh) while one was captured in “Bahraetch district” (present day Bahraich UP) “Wolves are numerous in the neighbourhood of Sultanpoor and indeed all along the banks of the Goomtree river among the ravines that intersect them; and a great many children are carried off by them from towns villages and camps” wrote Sleeman to give an idea of how numerous wolves were in “Oudh” (Awadh) So severe were the depredations they carried out that Sleeman narrates how a particular class of nomads used to make a living by selling off the jewels that they found in wolf dens the only remnants of the canid’s child victims Sanichar The Wolf Boy of India It was in central Awadh’s “Sultanpoor” province that the first “Mowgli” was caught: “There is now (Feb 1850) at Sultanpoor a boy who was found alive in a wolf’s den near Chandour 10 miles from Sultanpoor…A trooper… was passing along the bank of the river… when he saw a large female wolf leave her den followed by three whelps and a little boy The boy went on all fours and seemed to be on the best possible terms with the old dam and the three whelps and the mother seemed to guard all four with equal care: they all went down to the river and drank without perceiving the trooper…; as soon as they were about to turn back the trooper pushed on to cut off and secure the boy; but he ran as fast as the whelps could and kept up with the old one…They all entered the den and the trooper assembled some people from Chandour with pickaxes and dug into the den When they had dug in about six or eight feet the old wolf bolted with her three whelps and the boy The trooper mounted and pursued… and… he headed them and turned the whelps and boy back upon the men on foot who secured the boy and let the old dam and her three cubs go on their way” Sleeman narrates how this extremely “restive and aggressive” boy had to be tied and wanted to “rush into every hole or den they came near” He growled and snarled rejected cooked food and only took raw meat which it would put under his hands like a dog would while eating While eating he wouldn’t let anyone come near him except for dogs and jackals with whom he was calm and friendly and would always share his food with Sleeman narrates how this boy would be alarmed and cower if any grown man approached him but would rush towards a child coming near him “with a fierce snarl like that of a dog and tried to bite it” The boy was handed over to the Raja of “Hasanpoor” who then handed him over to one Captain Nicholetts the officer in charge of the First Regiment of Oude Local Infantry at Sultanpur The captain and his servants tried their best to integrate the boy into human society but failed Though the “wolf-boy” had become “very inoffensive” and had been taught to occasionally stand — he still preferred being on all fours — he would reject any clothing offered to him even in the coldest of weather “shunned human beings… and would never willingly remain near one” Moreover he could never learn to speak The boy lived under the care of the captain’s servants for almost two years and then suddenly died in August 1850 The Chupra wolf-boy was caught in similar circumstances when he was spotted with his wolf family along a stream bank near Chupra village a few kilometres east of Sultanpur in 1849 He was later identified based on his birthmark and a hot-water scald mark as a cultivator’s son who had been lifted by a she-wolf from the village fields almost six years ago The mother took in her long lost son but yet again sharing all the “animal traits” of the first Sultanpur wolf-boy he could never integrate with humans and she was forced to leave him “to the common charity of the village” After a few weeks he ran back into the forests when Sleeman last heard of him The case of the Bahraich wolf-boy caught around 1845 was even more interesting A few months after his capture in which two of his “wolf-brothers” had escaped he was eventually taken in by the roving caravan of Sanaollah a Lucknow-based Kashmiri shawl merchant and put under the care of Janoo his khidmatgar(servant) One night Janoo woke up to strange sounds and saw “two Wolves come up stealthily and smell at the boy” However this boy rather than being frightened “…began to play with him” Alarmed Janoo tried driving them away but the wolves kept returning and playing with the boy “The next night three wolves came and then four on the following night and they would play with this boy” Jaanoo would tell Sleeman that the “first two that came must have been the two cubs with which the boy was first found” Eventually three months later the boy managed to escape never to be seen or heard of again It was later ascertained with some degree of certainty that the boy was the lost son of a farmer and had been taken away by a wolf when he was about four In 1867 hunters near Bulandshahar rescued a young boy from a wolf-den and took him to the Agra Medical Missionary Training Institute (or Sekandra Orphanage as it was commonly known) He was christened Dina Sanichar — the boy who was born on Saturday (because he was brought to the orphanage on a Saturday) Valentine Ball a pioneer geologist working with the Geological Survey of India an accomplished ornithologist anthropologist and later director of National Museum of Ireland has presented perhaps the most detailed portrait of Sanichar ever written in his book?Jungle Life in India (1880). pic. “In certain respects, When faced with “unjust restrictions” and the “threat of an attack”, public order, The best part
