Rudyard Kipling was a British author and poet, born on December 30, 1865 in Bombay, India. He was the son of British parents, John Lockwood Kipling and Alice Macdonald Kipling.

In 1887, Kipling began working as a journalist and writer in India, and published his first book of poetry, "Departmental Ditties," in 1886. He also wrote a number of short stories and novels, including "The Jungle Book" (1894) and "Just So Stories" (1902).
In 1889, Kipling left India and moved to England, where he continued to write and publish books, including "Kim" (1901) and "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). He also wrote several war poems, including "Recessional" and "The White Man's Burden," which were published during World War I.
