Dr. Thane Oke Kyaw Myint
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.
