    I really admired your attempt at an upper-class English accent, although I respect the dignity of sparing us in Britain the indignity of your pronunciation of the dialogue in Kipling’s work. Also, I think it would be interesting to point out that Kipling specifically emphasised that Mowgli’s name should be pronounced the way it’s spelt, with the “mow” rhyming with “cow”.
