Rudyard Kipling

“Who is Kim?” He considered his own identity, a thing he had never done before, till his head swam. He was one insignificant person in all this roaring whirl of India, going southward to he knew not what fate.

Kim is Rudyard Kipling's most successful novel. Published in 1901, it is the story of the orphaned son of a soldier in the Irish regiment. The novel is set in India, then a British colony. Kim spends his childhood as a waif in Lahore where he meets a Tibetan lama. Kim embarks on a journey to locate the mystical river the lama is looking for only to be found by his father's old regiment which wants to groom him into a “Sahib.” Packed with lots of adventure and moments of self-discovery, the novel paints a vibrant picture of India.

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, on December 30, 1865. He spent his early childhood in India. He was sent to England for his education, where, for the next six years he lived a life of misery in a rigidly Calvinist foster home. At the age of twelve, he was placed in a private school.
He returned to India in 1882 and worked as a newspaper reporter as well as a part-time writer. In 1886 he published his first volume of poetry, Departmental Ditties, and between 1887 and 1889 six volumes of short stories set in India. When he returned to England he found himself already recognised and acclaimed as a brilliant writer. Over the following years he published some of his most exquisite works including his most acclaimed poem “Recessional” and most famed novel Kim. In 1907 Kipling won the Nobel Prize in literature.
