”They explained that by their studies of the past three months the pigs had succeeded in reducing the principles of Animalism to seven commandments. These seven commandments would now be inscribed on the wall; they would form an unalterable law by which all the animals on Animal Farm must live for ever after. With some difficulty (for it is not easy for a pig to balance himself on a ladder) Snowball climbed up and set to work, with Squealer a few rungs below him holding the paint-pot. The commandments were written on the tarred wall in great white letters that could be read thirty yards away.”
These were followed till the day it was understood that:

Eric Arthur Blair, (GEORGE ORWELL), was born in 1903 in Motihari, Bengal, a British colony of India. In 1933, he adopted his pen name, George Orwell while writing for the New Adelphi.
In 1945, Orwell's anti-Stalinist allegory Animal Farm was published to great critical claim. From 1945, Orwell was the Observer’s war correspondent and later contributed regularly to the Manchester Evening News. In 1949, his best-known work, the dystopian Nineteen Eighty-Four, was published.
Orwell’s writings straddled several genres: fiction, polemical journalism, literary criticism and poetry, essays on politics, literature, language and culture. Several of his neologisms are part of our everyday vocabulary today.
