အထပ္၊ အၾကိမ္ရျခင္းမ်ား ကို ေလွ်ာ့ျပီးေနာက္

စုစုေပါင္း ေက်ာင္းသား ၅၀၆၅ ဦးကို ေရြးခ်ယ္ႏုိင္ခဲ့ေၾကာင္း စီစစ္ေတြ ့ ရွိရပါသည္။(၂၄-၁၁-၂၀၁၄)အထိစီစစ္ျပီး။

The famous writer and Anatomist, Professor Dr Maung Maung  Nyo commented and asked me under my LYC picture album:

  1. Very nostalgic (pictures)!
  2. Were Luyechuns similar to Boy scouts at Boy scout Jamboree?
  3. Or were they similar to Communist Young Pioneers?

My brother Dr Alfred Balwin (USA) also asked me:

  1. Nyi Lay Ko, among many SPDC Projects, is Out  Standing Student Programme (Lu Yay Chun) a Success or a Failure?
  2. Nyi Lay Ko, I just need a simple answer Yes or No!

My reply:  Luyechun or Out Standing Student Programme was a success for the country and for the award winners. But it was a failure for the General Ne Win‘s government because they failed to BRAIN WASH most of us.

Dr Alfred: The country creates a brain drain. 2/3 of the Lu Yay Chun has already expatriated. No time to BRAIN WASH!!!

My reply:  At least just look at MOH Minister Dr Pe Thet Khin, MMU Rector Dr Than Win,  MMU Med Head Prof Dr Aung Gyi and Dr Khin Swe Myint (Ph D Japan, Rector – Mandalay University).

LYC Programme brought for them opportunities for gaining success for them and it benefit our country. Congratulations. A lot of Lu Yae Chuns were abroad. But at least PTK, TW and AG were not only in Myanmar and in Gov service but the leaders in the MOH and Medical Education field. U Sein Win , is also a former LYC that I know in KL. He is an Educationist, worked in RTM Radio Television Malaysia for a dozen of yr and is now in UM.

If think other way round, it is better for a country to export high income experts instead of cheap labour and maids. Expatriates also remit the FE back to the mother land in addition to tax.

Dear Ahkogyi, List of overseas Chinese  and List of Non-resident Indians are impressive. Overseas Chinese and Indians abroad were migrated out for various reasons various reasons but no doubt they had contributed enormously for the progress in economy and technology of their countries of origin. I BELIEVE, hope and pray that even our children would help Myanmar or Burma later.

I BELIEVE, hope and pray that even our children, second or third generation migrants abroad could or would be able to help our motherland, Myanmar or Burma later.

 I believe that it was started with the very good intention. By this selecting, competition process and awarding of bright students was aimed to be useful and beneficial for the future of the country and of course for the ruling government and BSPP party.

Mudita (Sympathetic or vicarious joy, the pleasure that comes from delighting in other people’s well-being rather than begrudging it. Wiki.) When I was in 6 th. std. Mdy newspaper published about LYC Nwe Nwe Tin. After reading her story, I admired her and wish to be like her. So studied and train myself not only academically but also for the physical fitness and general knowledge. (Nwe Nwe Tin got LYC for 4 times and married to LYC Sai Kham Leik, both became doctors and trained further as Anatomist)

Bright students had to compete at the school level, township and district level in General Knowledge, Burmese language, Maths and Physical fitness competition. General Knowledge covers the Burma/world history, geography, politics and of course also cover the BSPP and Government. Physical fitness competition was general PE, push-ups, sit-ups, Standing long jump competition , shot put  and (Track Running) Sprints.

Awarding, touring to get more general knowledge, dozens of dinner parties each year, marching, propagating of BSPP doctrines. At that time, General Ne Win’s Socialist Party Central Committee members were preparing for set up of the Youth wing called Lanzin Lu Nge. We felt honoured because they were even discussing, actually explaining the concepts, structure, rules and regulations and ideologies behind those things.

Students got the destinations to yearn for and once won, got exposure to the real world. We got the chance to travel and were treated as VIPs. LYC news published in the newspapers, even on front pages, dinners given by the Divisional Commanders, Division Council Chairmen, Education & Health Minister, Minister of Information and by General Ne Win and Madam Daw Khin May Than. (I think for the first three years only and the year 1966 was the last time General Ne Win gave the Dinner. All the LYCs had the chance to shake hands with both of them.) I even suspect that they purposely went abroad for health reasons during the time LYC were around in Rangoon. Or just the coincidence only but they were not in the country at that summer times, may be they also had holidays to avoid the hot April weather. At his dinner, all the Revolutionary Council members were seated in different tables to dine together with LYCs.

Even the most intelligent (Deputy) Minister, Dr Nyi Nyi, General Tin Oo (now NLD), BSPP CECs of Education, famous journalists, writers, were with us. BSPP CEC, U Than Oo, U Kyaw San etc were there. U Than Oo even rationalized the nationalization of the schools, by saying that the mission schools were the remnants of colonialization  and Christian propaganda. National Footballers to movie stars were brought in to introduced to us.

We got the lectures on various topics by university lectures, excursions to various factories, museums and other interesting places. We were treated as VIPs everywhere. Our news are published extensively in newspapers, radio (no TV at our time), LYC songs were broadcasted on radio and the Information ministry showed the LYC news movies in all the cinemas. Even they showed the news in the cinemas of Dolly Lin and my pictures raising the flag ceremony at the Kyayng Thar Pwe daw sports opening (1967) in Mandalay.

So the bright students were motivated, trained, gained better fitness, gained general knowledge, exposed to the top echelon in the various fields. And later LYSs were honoured in different ways throughout the whole year in the respective school and township.

    May Barani Naing: တကယ္အားက်ဖို.ေကာင္းတယ္။ဘာလို.ဆက္မေပးေတာ.တာလဲမသိဘုးေနာ္။
    Ko Ko Gyi: I hope and pray that LYC PTK (MOH), LYC Dr TW (Rector) and other LYC Rectors/Professors/Head of Dpts should give pressure to the authorities to REVIVE this programme.
    Dr Alfred Balwin: Nyi Lay Ko, How is Lu Ye Chun selected? Due to their merit or somebody’s son? I don’t see any Lu Ye Chun Generals. I like two questions put up by Saya Dr. Maung Maung Nyo.You skip them. Why? I am not a Lu Ye Chun but I can withstand any shock of life!
    Ko Ko Gyi : Bright students had to compete at the school level, township and district level in General Knowledge, Burmese language, Maths and Physical fitness competition. General Knowledge covers the Burma/world history, geography, politics and of course also cover the BSPP and Government. Physical fitness competition was general PE, push-ups @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Push-up, sit-ups @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sit-up_(exercise), Standing long jump competition @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_long_jump , shot put @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_put and (Track Running) Sprints @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprint_(running).

    No, Luyechuns were not similar to Boy scouts at Boy scout Jamboree
    nor were they similar to Communist Young Pioneers. LYC may have some common features and activities as a uniformed youth activities, at least during the camping period but afterwards there was SADLY no organization or association at all. We asked and requested since that time but authorities ignored totally without any response.
    Congratulations Ahkogyi for although OFFICAALLY not a Lu Ye Chun, but you are also a LYC of your own. Yes not the Gen Ne Win’s Revolution Council endorsed LYC but YOU ARE A LUYE CHUN because you are a high achiever and could even withstand any shock of life, the quality most the the so called Ne Win endorsed LYC (including me) are struggling out our lives abroad and in Myanmar.

  2. drkokogyi Says:

    Ko Ko Gyi Dear Ahkogyi, I have read the Pollyanna (in Burmese & Eng) for 50 times and Dale Carnegie’s How to stop Worrying and start living for more than a dozen times (Eng & U Nu’s translation) to withstand or fight back numerous shocks of life. Sometimes almost broke down or up to the brink of wishing to go to another life. I even started my blog to leave behind my POINT OF VIEW for my grandchildren because numerous friends (not fro FB) and relatives are willing to exagerate bad things but totally ignored my good deeds and struggle. So my blog is just to show off from my POV to countre them. I am just a normal human with a mixture of good and bad, failures and some success but I am not a saint and am not writting any bad things about me. Please forgive me brother.

  3. drkokogyi Says:

    Alfred Balwin Nyi Lay Ko, Never apologize. It is a sign of weakness. I am just exchanging view points. In this competitive world. Lu Ye Chun are afraid of failure. True leadership is not afraid of failure. If you study world leaders most of them are last in their class including Sir Winston Churchill. But he was the finest leader during the WWII, England ever produced.

    Myint Cho said: Dear Ko Nay Oo and LYC friends, It will be great if you can research and organise a list of Luyechuns who have served or still serve as military personals. Inviting them to our LYC group and friendly communication with them will be very beneficial. Their opinions on current situation in Burma and their concerns should be heard among us too. As far as I remembered, there are two senior military officers who won Luyechun awards in Pa-an. My senior Ko Soe Htay (? now Brig-Gen) won Luyechun award ?three straight times in Pa-an. Ko San Htun Chein (ex-Air Force officer) also won Luyechun award ?four straight times in Pa-an. But, I have no idea what they do and where they live in Burma now. Similarly, my old friend Yay Mon from ?Kathar was also a Luyechun. He served as Captain in Pa-an in 1988 and gave me a friendly warning not to organise demonstrations in August 1988. Now, he may be a high-ranking military officer too. Despite many differences, I respect the role of military personals not only in the country’s security issue but also in nation-building process. I always wish all Luyechuns from both civilian and military backgrounds meet again as friends and work together for a democratic, peaceful and prosperous Burma in the near future.

    Myint Cho Thank you so much for this information. I agree with you Ko Nay Oo.

    Dear LYC colleagues,

    Let me share you with some relevant historical facts.

    As far as I recently learned from former senior civil servants who mainly supervised the Luyechun (Outstanding Students) scheme from the very beginning, the LYC Scheme was a brainchild of Burma’s former dictator Gen. Ne Win. He created the LYC Scheme to nurture the bright and knowledgeable students with multiple skills to serve the country after they completed their education. But, he did not forcibly recruit them as cadres of his Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP). Nobody exactly knew how and where he got such an idea.

    Many people were confused that LYCs were like Lan-zin Youth. They also misunderstood that LYCs were also Lan-zin Youth and bother were cadres or potential cadres of the ruling Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP). Although all LYCs were also Lan-zin Youth, LYCs were not cadres of the BSPP. Even, some LYCs were not members of the BSPP. Most LYCs worked in various professional fields, not in the political party.

    Gen. Ne Win also created the Lan-zin Youth, Shay-shaung Youth and Tay-za Youth Schemes in (?) 1972/73/74 to recruit young people who must be loyal to the Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP) and safeguard the party. Those young people were recruited by giving various privileges and incentives.Those young people must not need to be bright and knowledgeable, but loyal to the party and obedient to the party leaders without questions. He copied such an idea from Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR).

    Similarly, Gen. Ne Win created the 1974 constitution, which guaranteed the BSPP to rule the country forever. Actually, U Ba Nyein (not Dr. Maung Maung) drafted it after studying the constitution of German Democratic Republic (GDR) mainly.

    I hope this information is useful.

    With best regards,
    Myint Cho (Pa-an)

    Sorry for the typo error “bother”. The correct sentence is “They also misunderstood that LYCs were also Lan-zin Youth and “BOTH” were cadres or potential cadres of the ruling Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP).
