Motihari( Bihar) : A Birthplace of Legendary English Writer George Orwell

George Orwell (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950)
 "Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself."

This immortal quote is from Orwell's, a renowned English author, cult classic "Animal Farm". He's considered perhaps the twentieth century's best chronicler of English culture.   

There is a great news for his worldwide fans, who are still rejoicing in his works. His birthplace at Motihari, Bihar in India has been declared a protected site by the Government of Bihar. This site has been enlisted by the 'Art and Culture Department' and being renovated.

Thanks God! Finally it's being done...
