Kipling

Just started reading Jungle Book again, after a long long time..its so lopsidedly discriminatory...strange how such things dont strike you as a kid! Never thought about this when I sat and watched the film or read the book as a very young child!!
Amazing.

My thoughts exactly. remember mentioning to somebody a few days ago that I liked Kipling as a child. And he was surprised to know that an Indian could "not hate" let alone like Kipling. Amazing how dont notice such things as kids
