Land of the ‘Jungle Book
The Pench Tiger Reserve and its neighborhood is the original setting of Rudyard Kipling’s most famous work, the jungle Book, Kipling borrowed heavily from Robert Armitage Strendale’s books ‘Seonee’ ‘Mammalia of India and Ceylon’ and ‘Denizens of the Jungle’ for the topography, the wildlife, and its ways. Mowgli was inspired by Sir William Henry Sleeman’s pamphlet. ‘An Account of Wolves Nurturing Children in Their Dens, which describes a wolf-boy captured in Seoni district near the village of Sant Baori in 1831. Many of jungle Book’s locations are actual locations in Seoni District like the Waingunga River with its gorge where Sherkhan was killed, Kanhiwara village and the ‘Seeonee hills’.
The terrain of the park is undulating with mainly gentle slopes criss-crossed by streams and nullahs. Most of these water courses are seasonal. Many of the hills are flat-topped and allow fine vistas of the forests around. The best known of these is ‘Kalapahar’ with an altitude of 650 mts. The Pench river flowing through the centre of the Reserve is dry by the April-end but a number of water pools locally known as dohs are found, which serve as waterholes for wild animals. A few perennial springs also exist. However, the water sources were not suitably distributed, hence large area remained unutilized by the wild animals. Recently a number of earthen ponds and shallow wells have been developed leading to well distributed sources of water all around the reserve.
In the year 1977 an area of 449.39 sq. km. was declared Pench Sanctuary. Out of this area an area of 292.85 sq. km. was declared Pench National Park in the year 1983 and 1183.31 sq. km. remained as Pench Sanctuary.
In 1992 Govt. of India declared 757.89 sq. km. including the national park and sanctuary as the 19th Tiger Reserve of the country.
The name of Pench National Park has been changed to “Indira Priyadarshini Pench National Park” in November 2002 Similarly the name of Pench Sanctuary has been changed to “Mowgli Pench Sanctuary”.
