”ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL.BUT, SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS”!HAPPY BIRTHDAY,GEORGE ORWELL!

GEORGE ORWELL WAS CLASS APART IN TERMS OF BRINGING POLITICAL-LANDSCAPES OF THE DAY INTO THE REALM OF LITERATURE AND MAKING A POWER PUNCH IMPACT ON THE STATUS-QUO OF THE TIME!
Orwell lived for 46yrs Only and wrote for around 20yrs and produced around a dozen books that includes pieces of journalism,reportage,essays,m emoirs etc. apart from his a few Novels and Novellas!
AND,ORWELL BECAME IMMORTAL !!
TODAY IS HIS BIRTHDAY!YEAH!HE WAS BORN ON 25’TH MARCH, 1903 IN A SMALL INDIAN TOWN OF MOTIHARI- -a town which is barely a 100 miles from the placei am writing now(Samastipur).
I visited the house,now a memorial of sorts, twice so far,the last being the last year when the place got a facelift due to the kind gesture shown by thestate government.
MOTIHARI, still a sleepy town,but,historically it is quite a vibrant hub as MAHATMA GANDHI too had his POLITICAL BIRTH herein 1917 when he raised voice against the Britishers who were exploiting the local peasants withINDIGO-PLANTATION!
Orwell didn’t spend his childhood here,yet,the soil of one’s birthplace has some mystical bearings upon a person!
GEORGE ORWELL’S WRITINGS COULD WELL BE READ AS ‘A VEHICLE OF REVOLUTIONARY THOUGHTS,IDEAS AND CHALLENGES’ and MOTIHARI WAS THE PLACE THAT LAUNCHED THE ‘SPIRIT OF REVOLUTION’ IN INDIA!
A VERY VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GEORGE ORWELL !
HIS WRITINGS ARE A GREAT SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE HELPFUL IN GAINING INSIGHTS OF THE WORLD AT LARGE EVEN TODAY!
To be continued. . .!
