<< Matkah | Character List | Nagaina >>
Nag is the Hindi word for cobra.
From The Jungle Book, Rikki-tikki-tavi
Rikki-tikki knew better than to waste time in staring. He jumped up in the air as high as he could go, and just under him whizzed by the head of Nagaina, Nag's wicked wife. She had crept up behind him as he was talking, to make an end of him; and he heard her savage hiss as the stroke missed.
