The main conflict of Kipling's persisting short story is Rikki's inescapable fights with the cobras, Nag and Nagaina. Rikki knows about the cobras' savage capacities, however his regular nature assumes control on two fronts: A mongoose's mortal adversary is the cobra, and his own particular apprehensions get to be auxiliary when one is close; and, his other obligation was to ensure the human family which had gotten to know him. His own particular wellbeing was less essential than these two instinctual desires.
