There was a young lady of NassikSubadars the equivalent of Regimental Sergeant Majors in the Indian Army.
Whose attire was graceful and classic
For all that she wore
Both behind and before
Was a wreath of the roses of Nassik.

...Mowgli had not the faintest idea of the diffeerence casste makes between man and man. When the potter's donkey slipped in the clay pit, Mowgli hauled it out by the tail, and helped stack the pots ...We have not found evidence of Rudyard trying his hand at pottery, but his father , who had been to Art School at Burslem in the Potteries, taught various crafts and modelled the clay tablets which were then photographed for the illustrations in Kim. The pottery taught at Bombay was not universally admired. Andrew Lycett p. 55.
