Pench 2019 Run T-shirt

The Pench souvenir run t-shirt is inspired by the characters of The Jungle Book who are illustrated in the Gond style - a form of tribal and folk art practised by the Gond people who are found predominantly in Madhya Pradesh.


Pench National Park is spread across two states – Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. There are multiple gates into the core zone – Turia Gate and Karmajhiri gate are the popular gates on the Madhya Pradesh side. More famously, the Pench National Park and the Seonee Hills is the setting of Rudyard Kipling’s famous The Jungle Book.

Pench's Jungle Book Connection

Fun Fact: Rudyard Kipling first wrote about Mowgli, not in The Jungle Book but in a short story titled In The Rukh.
