Animal Farm

A child loves it, a youngster loves it and it touches even the heart of someone who has lived long enough to see the political chaos.
George Orwell wrote not only a satire on the Russian Revolution but it was a political fable full of wit and fantasy. The story revolves around the animals living in a farm who wish to overthrow the dominating humans as their ruler. Since, the revolution was led by unconsciously power-hungry people, it led only to change of masters and the freedom from slavery remained a distant dream for the comrades of Animal Farm.
George Orwell tried to show the political leaders’ narrow-mindedness and the tactics they use to make sure that the faith of public in them isn’t dislodged. After throwing out the humans from the farm, the turning point came when pigs started to reserve milk and apples for themselves by justifying that they are the ones who are working hard by putting their minds into planning and future course of action in order to prevent the farm from any possible attack from humans.

The only difference in the lives of animals was that the baton of leadership has been passed from humans to pigs and little did they knew that now the evils of their lives sprung from the tyranny of pigs. The same toast was presented to them but in a different form and it was too late to identify the enemy from outside and the enemy within the Animal Farm.
