“As the moon came up behind the hill it shone through the openwork, casting shadows on the ground like black-velvet embroidery.”
– Rudyard Kipling, “The Jungle Book” (Kaa’s Hunting).

As far as I can remember The Jungle Book must certainly be one of the first book I ever heard about.
It never left me, it’s always in a corner of my mind ready to overpower my dreams.
I took this picture during monsoon in the temple complex of Khajuraho in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
It is surrounded by a dense jungle which inspired Rudyard Kipling and it is not too far from the village where the real Mowgli leaved.
Don’t get amazed when you read this little piece of information, it is even possible to visit his house near Katni where he died when he was very old.

This is indeed the land of Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and of course the harrowing Sher Khan.
