Rikki-Tikki-Tavi has a friend, Darzee and his wife
(both tailorbirds/ songbirds) that live in the garden.
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi discovers that garden residents, Nag (the word is Hindi for "snake") and Nagaina (both cobras) are plotting to kill the English family so they can take over the garden themselves. Nag slithers to the bathroom to wait to kill the "big man". But, Nag fell sleep while waiting. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi grabbed Nag by the head and Nag thrashed and woke the man who shot and killed Nag. Nagaina mourned for Nag and vows to get revenge. Darzee's wife distracts Nagaina, so Rikki can destroy the Cobra's nest and she later distracts Nagaina so Rikki can be victorious.
Rudyard Kipling did an excellent job at writing this story. It remains one that is very memorable from childhood because it is full of adventure with sad and scary moments.
