Hector Hugh Munro, better known by the pen name Saki, was a witty British writer. The inspiration behind his pen name ‘Saki’ is unknown. He is regarded as one of the greatest short story writers and compared to greats such as O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Munro was greatly influenced by the writings of Oscar Wilde, Rudyard Kipling and Lewis Carroll. His stories were initially published in newspapers and later collected into several volumes. Apart from short stories, Munro also wrote a full-length play, two one-act plays, a historical study, a short novel etc. He influenced great writers such as A. A. Milne, Noel Coward and P. G. Wodehouse. When he was in his early 20s, Munro went to Burma (Myanmar) to join the Colonial Burmese Military Police but he had to return back to England later due to ill-health. Thereafter, he embarked on his career as a journalist. He wrote for various publications including the Daily Express, the Bystander, The Morning Post and the Outlook
