Context

“«Mowgli,» said Baloo, «thou hast been talking with the Bandar-log—the Monkey People.»
Mowgli looked at Bagheera to see if the Panther was angry too, and Bagheera's eyes were as hard as jade stones.
«Thou hast been with the Monkey People—the gray apes—the people without a law—the eaters of everything. That is great shame.»
«When Baloo hurt my head,» said Mowgli (he was still on his back), «I went away, and the gray apes came down from the trees and had pity on me. No one else cared.» He snuffled a little.” source
