Today would have been Rudyard Kipling's Birthday. To honor his work, I've started this discussion. Please post your opinion on his work. Is it just the Jungle Book you're familiar with, or do you know more of his work? More about Kipling here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudyard_Kipling Also born today: LeBron James (24) and Tiger Woods (33).

I remembered Rudyard Kipling just as the author of Jungle Book. I read it but it was really a long time ago.

I have watched the jungle book quite a lot of times. Thanks for forwarding this piece of information. I did not know who was the author of this book. Thanks once again.

Hi there Vasile. I am glad he existed because he is somewhat responsible for Disney's Jungle Book. I know that in the end Walt Disney told his story board people to disregard Kipling's Story but in the end the name and the adventure was inspired by the writer's story. I don't know much about Rudyard Kipling, all i can say is that my girlfriend said his story is rather boring at times and i know from the backstage Disney that the story was also quite dark if i may say so.
