Name: Deekshaa GaneshBlock:8Title of Short Story: "Shooting an Elephant"Author: George Orwell
Hello you can call me Orwell, I am a police officer in Burma. I am hated by the Burmese because I am an Englishman. I wish they would get to know me, because I actually think imperialism is bad, just like them.
I know I shouldn't murder it, but I don't want to look like a fool for not killing it!
I'm so excited, he's going to kill the elephant!
I can't handle the pressure! I have to kill him!
It's not dead yet. I can't stand here and watch the elephant die.
I wonder if the Burmese know that I only shot the elephant to not look like a fool. I do feel rather guilty for killing the elephant, but what's done is done. At lease I won't face any legal troubles.
