Born on December 30, 1865, in Bombay, India, Joseph Rudyard Kipling was one of the most-acclaimed writers, of both prose and verse, of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He spent his early childhood in India and his exposure to the native languages in the subcontinent greatly influenced his writing style and clearly reflects in his works. Apart from his poems for children, Kipling is remembered for his tales and poems about British soldiers in India. His most-famous works include The Jungle Book, Kim, Just So Stories, The Man Who Would Be King, ‘If’ and ‘The White Man’s Burden’. Kipling’s significant contribution to the field of literature won him the Nobel Prize in 1907, making him the first English language writer and the youngest till this date, to receive the prize. He died on January 18, 1936.
