Question: What are the Master Words that Mowgli uses to get help from Chil the Kite and from the Poison-People during his adventure with the monkeys?
Correct Answer Even Bagheera is driven to call for help in the first rush of the battle with the monkeys. "...in despair (he) gave the Snake's Call for protection - "We be of one blood, ye and I" - for he believed that Kaa had turned tail at the last minute."
Question: When the Bandar-log (monkey people) steal Mowgli, where do they take him?
Correct Answer Kipling's portrayal of the Bandar-log is pretty clearly a sly poke at what we would now call the "chattering classes", those who comment upon what others have done, rather than doing themselves. "We are the most wonderful people in all the jungle! We all say so, and so it must be true," "What the Bandar-log think now the Jungle will think later".
Question: Why does Bagheera consider himself something of an expert among the animals on matters pertaining to Man?
Correct Answer Bagheera was born in the King's cages at Oodeypore. Then, one day "...I broke the silly lock with one blow of my paw and came away." This is the reason he pays the bull for Mowgli's life, as he has a fellow-feeling for another who was born among men.
Question: Who speaks for Mowgli at the 'looking-over' at the Council Rock, when he is adopted into the wolf-pack?
Correct Answer By the Law of the Jungle, if a cub's rights are disputed, he must be spoken for by two members of the pack who are not his mother and father. Baloo the Bear is allowed at the council, even though he is not a wolf, because he teaches the Law to the young cubs. He speaks for Mowgli, and then Bagheera buys the life of Mowgli with a fat bull, newly killed, because "to kill a naked cub is shame".
Correct Answer He composed this work in 8th century.Dandin's 'Tales of the Ten Princes' (Dasakumara Charita) is a collection of exciting and ingenious stories,held together by a framing narrative and all interwoven with great skill.The prose is comparatively simple.Long compounds are numerous,but the inordinately lengthy sentences of Bana are not to be found.The stories are secular,often humorous,and sometimes amoral,while the characters are well delineated.Some of the interest of the 'Ten Princes'lies in its comparative realism,for in their adventures the ten heroes come in contact with merchants and thieves,princesses and prostitutes,peasants and wild hillmen.Few works of Indian literature tell us so much about low life.
