Rikki-tikki-tavi is washed away from his mongoose family by a summer flood and humans save him. A human family saves him.

“Something went off like a thunderclap just behind him; a hot wind knocked him senseless and red fire singed his hair.” That was an excerpt from the famous story “Rikki TIkki Tavi”. We recently read it in my ELA class. It follows a mongoose named Rikki TIkki Tavi as he tries to protect his newfound family from two cobras that terrorize the bungalow and its garden. When fighting these snakes Rikki Tikki Sometimes gets himself into situations where he confuses bravery for stupidity and ignorance. The first reason that Rikki Tikki is not brave but stupid, is that after an angry nagaina took her egg back he followed nagaina when “she plunged into the rat hole” (p.27) he followed suit.
In the story Rikki Tikki Tavi, by Rudyard Kipling, Rikki Tikki Tavi must fight two snakes, Nag and Nagaina who try to kill him. They live in the garden and Rikki Tikki Tavi kills them and saves the other animals that live in the garden. One possible theme in this story is courage because no matter how afraid you are, you should always be courageous. The author says “ Rikki Tikki never knew when the hole might open and give Nagaina room to turn and strike at him.” (Kipling 73).

Rita and Keiji fought each other to see who would get out of the loops. “A hole gaped in Rita’s jacket… her battle axe trembled...the bullet toy rolled out of her hands,” Rita sacrificed herself so that Keiji could live. Rita never knew him for more than 24 hours, but Keiji felt like she knew her his whole life. “A small blue-green colony of mold floated on the coffee and as the bullet rolled in my hand, I pressed the cup to my lips and drank.” Throughout the whole book the only things that have changed are Rita and Keiji, yet somehow a lot more feels different. Keiji lost the best friend he never had, and only has a mug of coffee and a bullet to remember her by.

He walked down the hill, sharpening his hunting knife as he went. Waiting for him at the beginning of the reeds was a small, green frog with light green spots.
