a UN plane arrived after two days delay
each day we pray
each morning we hope
that the dead and destroyed areas saved
we are sure that the world can help
better and faster than what you are doing now
why are you making of yourselves seen as devils
obstructing help needed by people
what are you afraid of
in this kind of catastrophe
we do not think about ourselves
we think for all
for the victims
there shall be no borders
visas shall not be needed
for helpful samaritans
with equipments and medicines
do not be a control freak
show the world that you are noble
nobler than the lady
who asked for sanctions
this is not business nor for power
this is humanity
forget about her
show the world that you are a real man
a real soldier
a real army
who wish for the goodness for its people.
the world is flat
for anyone who helps
for their kindness
Have no FEAR for journalists
Have no FEAR for foreigners
Have no FEAR for anyone
show your goodness!
OPEN YOUR DOORS!
Dr Than Nyein was elected from Kyauktan in a place at Thanlyin across the river from the city of Yangon where DeBritto the Portugese King ruled during Myanmar King’s days. One beautiful Armenian church is there on the way to the pagoda in the river where you can feed the fish. It is a favorite place for us to visit for a day. You can drive out of the city for an hour and cross the bridge a present from China finished after 1988 riots. The BOC oil company , is there since British days now called Thanlyin refinery. The colonial bungalows are still on the landscape with scenic hills along side the river bank. Our company used to go and merchandize our goods at the big yearly festival of the ancient famous pagoda called Kyeikhauk. They also host a yearly Indian religious festival where many Indians like to visit.
Daily commuters from Thanlyin to Yangon usually takes a ferry boat which had a few mishaps of sinking and drowning in the river with over loaded passengers. We lost one of our friend in one accident in 70s.
Ironically Dr Than Nyein is now free but his own brother U Khin Nyunt the general who jailed him is under house arrest. Politics is ugly , craving for power and wealth can make brothers and families kill each other. During U Khin Nyunt’s time a Thilawar international port was built and some big plots were assigned for an industrial zone. We drove around there the last time in 2006 but the place looked dead and deserted.
They are all old now. Generals are getting old however rich they are they have to face death undoubtedly. The political prisoners are old and are facing health problems. For Burmese Buddhists , in the third part of our lives at old age, we have to prepare ourselves for next life. Make the best out of the rest of the time to take good karma for our own self. That means shedding useless attachments to any thing, ideas, party and associations, families, wealth, power , luxuries etc. Knowing the truth and act practical and one must leave a good moral path for the next generation.
May Dr. Than Nyein spend the rest of his life in peace and in good health. May he try to unwind the past and help build a smooth future for our next generation.
The map of Burma over ruled by Nargis
Angry at Greens on Greens of Golf fields
Negligent of their duties
Angry at citizens gambling Euro football
Angry at women betting two no lottery
Angry at men drinking beer
Gossiping and sitting at teashops
Luring girls with garlands of bills
Angry at doctors squeezing cash from illiterate batch
Angry at monks who practice communist manifesto
instead of tri-Tipitaka Dhamma
The Wrath of nature God shown upon
Where there is no protection by Culture and Sarsanar! ( Buddhist religion )
I feel sad reading the update news of a blogger from Yangon.
These are the educated youth of Myanmar with no hope for their future inside the country. He said that he did not want to live in this country when he is 30 in 2010. He wrote about the cyclone in his blog and today he and his friends are trying their best to help the victims.
According to his news, the cyclone victims are desperate , hungry and grab whatever they can from any office or donors. Cholera is spreading , no clean water, no security, transport is bad, everything in chaos.
Is there anyone that can calm the situation and promise help to these victims?
Will the arrival of US help – navy and helicopters and foreign experts setting up tents and rescue operations assisted by our military will control the situation?
I believe so. WE DESPERATELY NEED US ASSISTANT AND UN ASSISTANT.
Please let them IN and assist them and WE WILL VOTE YES TO YOUR CONSTITUTION.
Please HELP CONTROL THE SITUATION.
Give people HOPE , HELP They need!
US Navy IS THE BEST in DISASTERS
let them in let them help and work with them.
they cannot say NO if you REQUEST
They will get out when job is done.
DO NOT BE AFRAID.
DO NOT LISTEN TO STUPID people OUTSIDE making this a game.
