"Mowgli" Girl Adopted By A NGO Drishti Samajik Sansthan In Lucknow

LUCKNOW, INDIA - APRIL 8: Mowgli girl brought to NGO Drishti Samajik Sansthan home, on April 7, 2017 in Lucknow, India. The girl, possibly eight, was found abandoned in Katarniyaghat wildlife sanctuary in January. She had matted hair, wounds on her body and was wearing underwear when a forest patrol spotted her. But she behaved like monkeys walked on all fours, ate like animals by picking food with her mouth, instead of using her hands. Also, she whooped and screeched like monkeys to communicate. Her behaviour prompted people to call her girl Mowgli after the wolf-raised boy protagonist of Rudyard Kipling's iconic children's tale The Jungle Book. (Photo by Dheeraj Dhawan/Hindustan Times )
