Birthplace of George Orwell to become museum

2 posts in this topic

MOTIHARI , India, June 30 (UPI) --The tiny home in Motihari, India, where British writer George Orwell was born, will be restored and converted into an Orwell museum.

Work on the derelict building has begun, and the Bihar state government announced plans and funding to make it the world's first museum dedicated to the author of Animal Farm and 1984, as well as numerous other books, political essays, and commentaries.

Orwell, whose real name was Eric Blair, was born in the house near the border between India and Nepal and adjacent to an opium warehouse, in 1903. His father, Richard Blair, worked for the Indian Civil Service as a supervisor of poppy growers collecting opium to be exported to China.

Blair/Orwell deserves all the appropriate recognition his home town and state can provide.
