George Orwell: Motihari’s Gem
Eric Arthur Blair was born in the small town of Motihari, in Bihar on 25 June 1903. He would go on to become a solider, a prolific journalist and a literary giant. Never heard of him? That’s because today, we know him as George Orwell.
Known for his timeless works like Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, Orwell’s life was as fascinating as his books. But what is relatively unknown was the deep connection he had with the Indian Subcontinent and how it shaped him.
