By now, you all must have known my unconditional love for George Orwell's work. This post is to celebrate what would've been George Orwell's 110th birthday.
Here are a few less known facts about him -
Orwell was born Eric Arthur Blair on 25 June 1903 in eastern India, the son of a British colonial civil servant. He was educated in England and, after he left Eton, joined the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, then a British colony. He resigned in 1927 and decided to become a writer. In 1928, he moved to Paris where lack of success as a writer forced him into a series of menial jobs. He described his experiences in his first book, 'Down and Out in Paris and London', published in 1933. He took the name George Orwell, shortly before its publication. This was followed by his first novel, 'Burmese Days', in 1934.
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. Sending lots of love your way. 😘
