He is to go and see what is going on and to handle the situation as he sees fit. Upon reaching the elephant, Orwell finds him silently grazing by himself and believes that his threat of madness has pass. However, by this time he has a crowd of “yellow faces” (the village people), forming a mass crowd behind him. He then makes the decision to shoot the elephant, even though he had previously decided that he would not have to, for he stated, “As soon as I saw the elephant I knew with perfect certainty that I ought not to shoot him” (Orwell 575). Orwell goes on to explain, that his initial shot did not put the animal down, and after shooting multiple rounds into the animal it still took time for death to come.
When Orwell fires the first and second shot the elephant did not hit the ground, only after the third shot did the elephant collapse. Orwell then tries to put the elephant out of its misery by firing his pistol several times, but the elephant still continued to live. 2. The first two paragraphs set the scene and tone for the readers to have a better understanding of the events that will happen. Orwell feels like an outcast rebel, he wants the Burmese to stand up against the British Empire.
“As soon as I saw the elephant perfect certainty that I ought not to shoot him” When Orwell saw the elephant for the first time he knew that it wasn’t being dangerous, it was peacefully eating grass. Orwell did not intend on shooting the elephant but the huge crowd that was behind him they were all filled with happy faces and excitement that the elephant was going to be shot. This is where society took over Orwell; the Burman people did not like him he was always hated by them because he was an officer of the British Empire but since Orwell had a rifle in his hand, to them he was worth watching and made him realize he had to shoot the elephant. His belief that he had to do this doesn’t jusitfy him on killing the elephant because he knew the elephant wasn’t doing any harm at that moment but he went on did what the Burman people wanted him to do. The Burman people kept on provoking Orwell to shoot the elephant.
When he finally got the courage to shoot the lion he hit him once but the lion unfortunately ran into the tall grass in the safari. Even though he had the chance to chase the lion into the grass Macomber decided not to go into the grass to finish the lion off (15). The Next day, Francis is gaining a measure of courage as he engages in a standoff with a charging water buffalo, “get a little broadside and take him in the neck just behind the ear” (hemmingway23). Mrs. Macomber realizes that if Francis continues to prove himself strong and willful and courageous, he might leave her and rid himself forever of her sharp-tongued ridicule. Macomber is a coward and perhaps he doesn't deserve his manhood when he achieves it and maybe that's why he dies.
He pities the natives and doesn’t agree with their harsh treatment. When he is put in a situation where he is pressured to do something he doesn’t want to he realizes that he is “only an absurd puppet pushed to and fro by the will of those yellow faces behind. I perceived in this moment that when the white man turns tyrant it is his own freedom that he destroys” (Orwell). Even though the man is not the minority he still has the pressures of the stereotypes of his people pushing down on him. To the “yellow faces” he is the type of man to kill an elephant, even though it goes against his wishes.
As a result of recent studies, Vivek Menon has discovered that elephant poaching increased nearly three fold between 1990 and 1996. However, a large number of carcasses go unreported, so the real estimates could be as much as five times the numbers recorded. When the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) ‘downlisted’ three populations of elephants in Africa in 1997 (this increased to four countries in 2000), it re-started the legal trade in ivory which had been previously banned for ten years. As a result, elephant poaching around the world, including India, increased. Vivek Menon has found that the new wave of poaching in India includes new methods of killing elephants.
In order to defend the border and feed the imperial clans the in kind of tax were too heavy for the common people. Lead the Ming government isolated with the masses. Thirdly, and the most fatal crisis must be the lack of responsibility in chongzhen’s personality and the terrible relationship between the last emperor Chongzhen and his ministers, the distance between minister and emperor became far away ,and ultimately none of his ministers would like to work for him anymore and this lead to a famous talk from chongzhen, “My ministers have failed me. As ruler of the country I must die for the altars of the soil and grain. An empire that has lasted 277 years: It is all because of the mistakes of treacherous minister that it has come to this.Alas!’’ So many scholars put forward their opinions answering the reason why Ming Dynasty cannot addressed these crisis and finally collapsed.

Research proposal: American international University- Bangladesh Subject: Research Methodology Topic: Elderly people of Rehabilitation (old home) Course instructor: Dr. Md. Faruque Hossain Semester : fall Section: F Submitted by : Towhid, Abudullah-al ID: 07-09710-3 Signature: Background: Once in an African country, there was the problem of there being too many elephants. Researchers came to the conclusion that 25 percent of the elephants had to be killed off. When it came to deciding which of the mammals would be killed, the older elephants were chosen, for they only ate and did not work and apparently did not have anything to contribute. Three years later, it was found that the number of young elephants in the country had begun to reduce at an alarming rate.
But what followed? As soon as the elephant put his trunk inside the hut, slowly he pushed his head inside, and finally flung the man out in the rain, and then lay down comfortably inside his friend’s hut” (Just after the man had shared his hut with the elephant). “But no sooner had he built another hut than Mr. Rhinoceros charged in with his horn lowered and ordered the man to quit. A Royal Commission was again appointed to look into the matter, and the same finding was given. This procedure was repeated until Mr. Buffalo, Mr. Leopard, Mr Hyena and the rest were all accommodated with new
