U Han Sein (C69)
U Han Sein (C69) is a senior from the Class of 69, but he is physically and mentally active.
He represented RIT in Swimming, Water Polo and Basketball.
In 1999, the Class of 69 organized a Reunion and mini-SPZP for the 30th Anniversary of Graduation. The organizers compiled an address / phonbook for the 69ers and also listed GBNF (Gone But Not Forgotten). Ko Han Sein was inadvertently listed as GBNF.
Only a few close friends might know that Ko Han Sein was “whisked away” by Adhamma authorities and sentenced him to 20+years in a kangaroo court for his “involvement” in 8-8-88 related activities. He was released after 17 years when “Lut Nyein Chan Thar Kwint” was proclaimed.
Ko Han Sein was a Tone Kyaw. He suffered losses / relations during and after his “Waso”.
He did not lose heart. He attends the 69er gatherings regularly and also serves as photographer. He happily tries out the camera tricks (e.g. creating twins) and posts the photos on the RIT69ers FB page.
He is also active as Leader (“A Pho Gyi”) for the social and religious activities in the Latha area.
His birthday is on May 24.
