Not sure, if people have heard of Jon Favreau or Rudyard Kipling, but they are sure to have heard of Mowgli. The protagonist of “The Jungle Book”, he was born to an extremely caring set of parents. But was orphaned at infancy and later was nourished and brought up by all the good animals of the forest. The opening line of the song goes –“Jungle Jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai…Arre chaddi pehen ke phool khila / hai phool khila ha…” Which translates to - “There is news coming from forest and we got to know that a flower is blossomed with underwear”. Here ‘flower’, refers to Mowgli. If not anything, then definitely this sweet tale of the forest would make your heart crave for the wild for once. India has got some of the finest forest ranges. One of which is Uttarakhand.
