How do you think an Indian gray mongoose and the King Cobra will interact with each other? In the story Rikki-tikki-tavi, Rudyard Kipling writes about a mongoose and a cobra. The main characters are two cobras and a mongoose. Rikki-tikki-tavi (the Indian gray mongoose), Nag (King Cobra), and Nagaina (King Cobra’s wife). In the story, Nag and Nagaina were aiming at Teddy and his family and wanted Rikki-Tikki to get out of the way.
The narrator’s choice of adjectives in describing the snakes, then, is not justified by any evidence of deviant behavior. The perception of the snakes as evil, therefore, is based solely on the snakes’ adversarial relationship to Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and especially to the human family. Indeed, the narrative voice’s bias towards the human family’s point of view not only casts the snakes as evil, but it idealizes and, therefore, depicts as well as the human family. Rikki-Tikki thinks that he is lucky for being adopted by a human family because ‘‘every well brought- up mongoose always hopes to be a house
For instance, Rikki Tikki tells Nag and Nagaina that it is wrong of them to eat Darzee’s eggs (para 25). This demonstrates an example of personification because Rikki upset with Nag and Nagaina always bullying the other the animals of the garden. This piece of personification supports the theme because even though Rikki knew that cobra’s are venomous, he still stood up to them and fought them. In addition, Nagaina tells Nag to go and wait in the house that Teddy and his family lives in so that they can kill Rikki (para 49). This also demonstrates an example of personification because Nagaina was fed up with Rikki Tikki ruling the garden that she sent Nag out to try and kill him.
They were dead.” (227-228). Hercules strength was involved even when he was an infant. He managed to kill two poisonous snakes that were sent by Hera to kill Hercules. Hercules strength was also a beneficial trait when he had to perform the twelve tasks that were given by Eurystheus.

Matt Piven goes on to say “The pythons unique hinged jaws allow it to swallow an object five times as wide as its own head.” In other words Piven means that it can easily swallow almost anything it pleases. This is significant because no one wants to die accidentally because of a pet. Pets are to be loving and caring and not like these killing machines.
So she began taking of its fruit and eating it.+ Afterward, she also gave some to her husband when he was with her, and he began eating it.+7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized that they were naked.” (Slide 10) Zeenat: The presence of evil in Lord of the Flies is the beast. Golding interprets allegory to the bible when he expresses the event in which the calmness of the island is disturbed, due to the talk of a creature the boys refer to as a "snake-thing” that evokes fear among them.
The younger boys are scared of the island and cannot speak out the exact fears they have because they are inarticulate. They demonstrate their concern with a snake as a symbol. Jack counters these thoughts in a rather aggressive way as he tends to kill the snake. This shows that the island itself is harmless but that the boys bring the violence and fear. The snake represents the symbol for fear but in reality there is no snake present.
Janie Inger started, as she announced that she was “going to stop buying [the eggs that Mrs. Fullerton was selling]” (69), in an attempt to decrease the overall demand thereof, and consequently, compel her to get rid of her chickens—eliminating the issue of the poor smell. However, this was not sufficient for the community, for shortly after, Steve had introduced the lane deal; explaining to the neighbours that “if [they] can work [the] lane deal, [Mrs. Fullerton] has got to go. It’s simple and it’s legal” (69). These examples clearly depict how the theme was further developed at the birthday party as the community planned to realize their desire to extract Mrs. Fullerton’s house from their neighbourhood.
The artist declares that “the subjects of those prints are calculated to reform some reigning vices peculiar to the lower class of people” (Bindman, 1981, p.178). The apocalyptic scene reminds of the Final Judgement or a Hell on Earth, where all the sinners and the gin addicted are portrayed together. Above houses collapsing, hanged people, corpses and brutalization, the statue of George II stands still but disregarded. The woman in the foreground does not notice that her son falls out of her arms, contravening the classic figure of the mother, who should protect and care about her own child. This allegorical image draws inspiration from a fact that really happened: a child’s death caused by his drunk mother.

“Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Rudyard Kipling. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is a young mongoose who is taken in by a english family in India. Rikki shows as if he was fighting a war, and that no matter what happens he will keep everybody safe, at whatever cost. Rikki has a whole lot of courage, strength, and selflessness. First, Rikki shows a whole lot of courage when “she plunged into the rat hole where she and Nag used to live, his little white teeth were clenched on her tail and he went down with her” (and every mongoose knows not to follow a snake into their hole, otherwise there’s a huge chance that you won’t be alive for much longer)
Rikki ´s determination has helped his family out of harm and safe in their home. Bravery is what helped Rikki the most “Rikki-Tikki had sprung, jumped on the snake’s back, dropped his head far between his forelegs, bitten as high up the back as he could get hold, and rolled away.” ( Kipling, 127) This brought out his inner courage to go out and fight a 5 foot cobra and think he’s going to come back
Then he got revived, he was lying in the middle of a garden path. When Rikki saw the snakes at first he was a little scared, but he knew it’s impossible for any mongoose to be afraid for a period of time. Rikki never met a live cobra before, but his mom gave him dead ones to eat. He said “A mongooses business is not only to eat, but fight snakes too!”
