General Ne Win’s Socialist Party Central Committee members in trouble with my discussions at the Outstanding Student Camp

It was 1966; I was just 16 years old, because Than Win (Now Dr Than Win, Rector of University of Medicine, Mandalay) and I were selected as the Lu Yae Chun or Outstanding Model Students from Mandalay. We both were from the St.Peter’s High School. He was 7th. std. and I was from 8th. std. As I already stated, we were selected 5 times each together and always at the same camp. He was plump and short and I was thin and tall always together like Star wars’ R2-D2 and C-3PO (but I was not gay he’he’), he was fair but I was a little big darker and starting to have a beard and mustache which I need to shave but because of multiple pimples, I was quite ugly.) But at them time some teased us as Pho Wa and Ingar Joh or Fatty boy and Mars Planet, the famous Burmese cartoon characters. But later, Than Win became tall and handsome. I wish to know his present features.

General Ne Win’s Socialist Party Central Committee members who were in-charge of Youth Affairs/ Lan Sin Lu Nge were always there to mold or brain wash the young bright students.

 

Their oratory skills were very good but landed into trouble when they invited us to discuss at the intervals between the lectures. Because they were encouraging us to dare to stand up and talk in-front of the public and were even telling us that they were going to give marks according to our ability, I used to discuss or dispute some of the facts they presented.

First of all, there was important news developing at that time. The announcement of nationalization of all the Mission schools was made while we were at the Nga Pali Shwe War Chaing camp.

U Than Oo, U Kyaw San etc were there. U Min Htwe rationalized the nationalization that mission schools were the remnants of colonialization  and Christian propaganda. He bluffed as if all the mission school students need to convert into Christianity and need to change to Christian names. At the discussion time I stood up and rebutted his false claims or accusations. I pointed (Dr) Than Win and told him that he and I were from St. Peter’s but his name was Than Win and he was still remained as Buddhist, I, KKG and remained Muslim. The speaker tried to twist the facts and we all knew that he was not sincere.

At another lecture he was lecturing us about the world history. At the discussion time, I told him that after the pre-historical communities’ common possession period there was progress to the slavery period then progressed into a better monarchy system, later better Capitalism replaced. Now it evolves into a better Socialism. According to Buddhism and Burma’s Socialist ideology, there is always ‘the change’ where the old decayed into oblivion and the new developed. So I suggested all of us to be proactive and think about a better new system than the present Socialism, which would rather became old and decay later and would definitely replaced by a new better system. He was so angry and rubbished my idea. I was 16 year only then. He was the Socialist Cadre from the Party’s central executive committee. Few of his fellow comrades watching also could not rebut me.

And at the last year or the 5th. year of my meeting with that group ….

I was just 16 years old, in 1966 at the Inlae Khaung Daine Luyechun or Outstanding Student Camp. General Ne Win’s Socialist Party Central Committee members who were in-charge of Youth Affairs/ Lan Sin Lu Nge were always there to mold or brain wash the young bright students.

Their oratory skills were very good but landed into trouble when they invited us to discuss at the intervals between the lectures. Because they were encouraging us to dare to stand up and talk in-front of the public and were even telling us that they were going to give marks according to our ability, I used to discuss or dispute some of the facts they presented.

One day while lecturing about Socialist ideology, U Min Htwe, BSPP CEC said that during the Capitalist system, the bosses or capitalists were always right and in the Socialist System, workers should be always right whether they are right or wrong. He asked us whether we agree to that ideology. No one say anything. I stood up and told that we should change the employment or Labour Law to be fair for the workers by looking sympathetically from workers’ side. And should decide judge fairly or justly. If the workers are right OK but if they are wrong, we must dare to decide that workers are wrong. U Min Htwe was agitated and angrily replied that whether the worker is right or wrong, workers must be right in the Socialist System.

Ha ha, when the workers protest Ne Win’s BSPP army shoot and kill the workers.
