Joseph Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay on the 30th December 1865. He was the son of John Lockwood Kipling, a talented artist and Alice one of the gifted MacDonald sisters. In 1907 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, the first and youngest English writer of this award. Hilton Brown one of Kipling's biographers wrote in 1936 " there died a man whose name had once resounded through the temple of English literature and the explosion of whose genius had rocked its walls....No great writer was so near the hearts of his readers; no great writer had been, perhaps, since Dickens "
