SPHS (001) : TOKM, VNW and KMU

Dr. Thane Oke Kyaw Myint (TOKM)

Dr. Thane Oke Kyaw Myint (SPHS60) stood Sixth in the Matriculation of 1960. He missed the top five spots by a mark each. The Brothers were disappointed although 20+ SPHS students received Collegiate Scholarship.

He worked at the Rangoon Children’s Hospital an taught Pediatrics. He was forced to resign for his involvement in 8-8-88 protest.

He worked for

  • UNICEF Myanmar for two years
  • China for two years
  • Bangladesh for six years
  • Oskistan for three and a half years
  • three and a half years in the Pacific based in Fiji

After retirement, he moved to Canberra, Australia.

He considers me as a member of his family. Our parents were Dhamma friends. He took care of the health of my then-young sons.

He was organizer of the “Alumni of the Medical Institutes in Myanmar”.

He added insightful comments to my Trivia posts. Some are about his father and six siblings. Some are about names of notable Burmese professionals.

I re-posted a few of his blogs : one about U Tin Tut and another about his bright classmates and students.

Dr. “Victor” Nyunt Wai (VNW)

Dr. Nyunt Wai (Victor, SPHS63) stood Fourth in the Matriculation examination in 1963.

He taught Physiology in Burma and Malaysia.

He suggested a list of names to be covered.

He also added entries to my posts about names.

His hobbies include painting and poetry.

Dr. Nyunt Wai is seen fourth from the right. Dr. Khin Maung U is the right most.

Dr. Khin Maung U (KMU)

Dr. Khin Maung U (SPHS63) stood First in the Matriculation examination in 1963. He was selected Lu Ye Chun for several years at the Institute of Medicine (1).

He performed research at BMRI (DMR) in Rangoon and at FDA in the US. He also taught at selected Universities in the US.

He shared several of his old writings about Dhamma. He was then active as an Interpreter for Dhamma talks and meditation retreats.

He has presented selected medical research papers for the lay person.

I have posted a sample in my Trivia series.
