The Dark-haired girl Falls, Winston then helps her up and she hands him a Letter saying "I Love You".
Well, I would research any and all possible countries that you know had a totalitarian leader and then narrow it down to that leaders specific type of ruling. Here's a few countries to get your started:
The Dominican Republic, Rafael Trujillo, 40's
Germany, Adolf Hitler, 40's
Cold War Russia, 80's
Russia (during Red Scares part I and II)
Uganda, Present day
North Korea, Kim Jong Ill, Present day
Also, my guess is that you are doing this for homework. In that case you should gather all your notes from class sort through them and look for the answer in there.
She is vain, careless, conceited, lazy and easily bought.
Shooting An Elephant is a work of creative non-fiction, so while the details likely come from Orwell's imagination rather than an uncanny ability to recall details, the story is, on the whole, factual. Recreational elephant hunting was not unheard of in India during the time the story takes place.
As Animal Farm progresses and the pigs win control over the humans of the farm, they become increasingly human-like themselves, turning into the very same thing the animals were revolting against in the first place. They begin trading and working with other farms and business for this reason. To work the animals and make money, and thus not have to work themselves. The farm was intended to be a shared 'communist' type of arrangement after the animal revolt, but the pigs tricked all the other animals and nothing, in the end, changed. The other animals were still being abused and worked to death, while the pigs now, instead of the humans, got to live comfortably in the house.
The book was written in England during World War II. At the time, the British government discouraged anything that was likely to sow discord among its allies, which included the Stalinist government of the USSR. Once World War II was over, there was no problem about publishing Animal Farm.
Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Capitalism etc... are all the same at the core, they use idealism to manipulate the population into supporting their Oligarchic goals. Just read Animal Farm, they were hopeful about a new idealistic form of "government" called "Animalism." However at the end the farm becomes a totalitarian oligarchy. This same theme is expressed in 1984 with the quote from O'brien, "Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."
George Orwell's mother was called Ida Mabel Blair. She grew up in Burma with her french father. I hope this helps

In George Orwell's book 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' the Thought Police , represented by Charrington , is a police organisation devoted to uncovering thoughts that are not in keeping with 'IngSoc' (ENGlish SOCialism) . The Thought Police could , and eventually would , arrest any citizen with any thought contrary to common practise regarding blind obedience to 'Big Brother' .
"The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed--would have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper--the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you."
