Saya U Thet Lwin attended St. Paul’s High School. His Burmese teacher was Saya Sein (father of Saya Dr. Soe Win).
Saya taught Burmese at the Institute of Economics. At the Golden Jubilee of the University of Rangoon, he served as Secretary of the Committee headed by Saya Dr. Aung Gyi (Professor of Civil Engineering).
Saya Dr. Aung Gyi succeeded U Yone Mo as Rector of RIT. Then there was a vacancy for Registrar. The Rector of the Institute of Economics told Saya U Thet Lwin to apply for the position, and also gave him a strong recommendation.
The “Pathan Set” resulted in a wonderful reunion of the two sayas who volunteered together at the RU Golden Jubilee.
