Today, I am going to write about a lady of our nation. Have you ever thought of about who you admire? Well, I certainly have. Aung San Suu Kyi (here in after Suu), one of the person I admire most, she was born in 1945 in Burma. Her father, General Aung San, who was our independence leader was assassinated in 1947. Therefore she was raised by her mother who was appointed as an Ambassador in Nepal and India. She gained a Ph.D at the School of Oriental and African Studies from the University of London in 1985.
Suu became famous in 1988 when she came back to care for her dying mom. There was a big anti - government protest all over Burma against Ne Win's government. Suu developed the NLD (National League for Democracy) party in 1988 and it won the election in 1990. Burmese people admire her not only as a daughter of our national hero but also for her courage. She has two sons with Dr. Michael Aris in the UK. Her popularity is a thread to the ruling government therefore the juntas put her under house arrest. She has been prevented seeing everyone however she never gives up. She was awarded the Nobel Price in 1991. Her husband passed away in 1999. The poor man did not get a chance to see his wife due to a visa rejection from military juntas in Burma.
Well, I admire her as an intelligent politician and also as an excellent writer. She delivered a thousand speeches and books about human rights and democracy. Although she has been under house arrest for more than two decades, I am sure she will never give up for her mother land . There is a lot of information on the World Wide Web about her. Moreover people can find information form the book names "Fearless from Voice of Burma" written by Whitney Steward. 19th June is her birthday, I am sure Burmese people will never forget her birthday and always appreciate her courage and guidance. Happy Birth Day to you, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi (The lady of Golden Land)!!!!
