Shilpa Shetty thinks George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ should be introduced in schools so that kids can learn about loving and caring for animals.
Read that statement one more time, for it to really sink in!
‘Animal Farm’ is a political fable about a bunch of animals who rebel against the humans, hoping for a better, more egalitarian existence under self-rule, or swaraj, if you will. The plan fails when the pigs take over and begin bossing the animals around.
There is nothing, and I mean nothing, in Orwell’s book that can be considered kid-friendly for even a second. At no point is there any mention of loving and caring for animals, or anyone else for that matter! Basically, it’s the kind of book that sends shivers down the spines of many a grown-up. But Shilpa Shetty seems to think that kids would learn a lot from it.
