Why not??

Miss Raksha and her pupils

Raksha the Mother Wolf is a fictional character featured in Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli stories, collected in The Jungle Book. She is a female Indian Wolf, who while suckling her own cubs decides also to adopt a human "cub" that her mate Father Wolf has found wandering in the jungle, naming him "Mowgli" (which means "frog" in the Speech of the Jungle) because of his hairlessness.

Defying the tiger Shere Khan, who is determined to eat the man-cub, she reveals that her name is Raksha (which means "protection") because of her ferocity as a fighter, and she will fight to the death for any of her cubs, natural or adopted.

Raksha does not play a large role in the Mowgli stories, but occasionally offers her adopted son moral support.

In class, I’ll be your Mother Wolf, helping you improving your English as much as I can, but if you don’t respect the rules... Watch out!!

Raksha est un personnage issu du Livre de la Jungle de Rudyard Kipling. Dans l’histoire, elle est la mère louve qui a recueilli et élevé Mowgli comme son propre fils. Elle représente la maternité et la protection. Le nom "Raksha" signifie "Protection" : Raksha est certes douce et maternelle mais elle a du tempérament. Au début du "Livre de la Jungle", elle défie le terrible tigre Shere Khan en le regardant droit dans les yeux, ce qui prouve son courage et sa détermination.
