You can use all of OGRE's functionality using Python instead of C++. If you want to know why you would want to do that, read this.
IMPORTANT PyOgre and Python-Ogre have been discontinued. OGRE >= 1.10 provides Python bindings directly as a component. For Ogre 1.12, rather use
pip install ogre-python
There are also many more examples in your C:\PythonOgre\demos folder.
