There is a drought and Shere Kahn is guarding the waterfall, preventing any of the other animals from drinking. His condition for letting them drink is for Mowgli to give himself up. Mowgli is willing, but Baloo and Bagheera say there must be a better way. Mowgli pretends to give himself up but in fact leads Shere Kahn into a pit. Just as Mowgli is telling his friends they candrink, an enraged Shere Kahn arrives at the scene. Mowgli now has to give himself up, but as he's saying a long drawn out goodbye to everyone it starts to rain. Mowgli's delaying tactic has worked.
