Ko Khin Maung Zaw (EC76) added :
I vividly remember the days where I used to hang out with Saya U Maung Maung Than at Ko Maung Maung’s office အားကစားမွူး near Textile Dept. Saya U Hla Shwe (Textile, GBNF) and Saya U Win Maung (Civil) were among frequent visitors, we played darts there, had some good times there.
One time he lamented that he had to refrain from drinking in the evening due to an alert from the authorities on possible student unrest.
Only much later, I found out that he was a very good close friend of my cousin during their college days.
May his soul rest in peace.
