George Orwell was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic; he is best known for his novels ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’. Both these novel are literary masterpieces and are considered as the sharpest satirical fiction of 20th century. Born in India as the son of a British civil servant, George Orwell’s original name was Eric Arthur Blair. Soon after his birth, his mother shifted to India. Orwell did his schooling from Eton and because his family did not have the financial means to support his university education, he joined the India Imperial Police Force. He served in Burma for five years and then resigned and came back to England in order to pursue his passion of writing. He adopted the pseudonym George Orwell when he took to writing. He did so because he did not want to embarrass his family. Initially he struggled to make ends meet with his writing career. His writing career truly came to the party with his 1945 novel ‘Animal Farm’. It was an anti-Soviet satire with two pigs as its main protagonists. The pigs ostensibly represented Josef Stalin and Leon Trotsky. His next masterpiece, 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' explored how a totalitarian regime persecutes individualism. Both these novels brought cult status to Orwell. He is still revered today and features among the list of the greatest writers of all times
