George Orwell

Millennium writer George Orwell's birth place at Motihari in East Champaran district , which was earlier declared as a "Protected" site, will now be converted into a full-fledged museum. George Orwell (Born Eric Arthur Blair) was born in a seven-acre campus which also housed an opium warehouse. His father worked for the opium department during the British rule.

George Orwell moved to England and went on to write last century's best dystopian novels 1984 and Animal Farm.  Hopefully the restoration work and conversion into a full fledged museum will attract more tourists to Bihar and Motihari in particular increasing the means of livelyhood for the people there.

More details can be found in the First Post article "George Orwell museum to come up in Bihar"
