Mowgli boy is the best animal friend and they don't hurt him
This boy is 20, and his sister is 25. They take walks into the scariest corners of the woods to play with the wild animals. Locals view them as modern day Mowgli kids.
The wildlife in India can be dangerous and even lethal. Tigers and other animals and reptiles kill people. However, these youngsters are not afraid to go into the wild. Never nature has done any harm to them.
Locals call the boy Gorilla because he acts like animals and is their best friend. He can establish some kind of strange connection with the animals, and they never hurt him.
The tourists are afraid of the boy because he acts like a gorilla. These siblings started to walk as normal kids when they were just one year old, but they still cannot speak. They seem to be bereaved of this gift, and that connects them with the wildlife even more.
Their father was murdered, and their mother is the only income source for the family. Doctors were unable to give them any help. One doctor says that they suffer from some mental disorder, and it prevented their brains from further development.
Even though the brother and sister cannot work, they dwell in the woods and can provide food and other things they need. Animals take them as their own and never hurt them! The modern day Mowgli kids indeed!
