Video Broadcast : #079

Text Update : January 16, 2021

  • During our RIT days, we did not have to study Political Science.
  • Some of our juniors had to study Political Science.
  • I know three sayas who taught Political Science.

U Nyein Aung

  • Taught Political Science at RIT.
  • Was among the sayas from the Supporting Departments, who were invited to attend SPZP-2007 in Singapore.
  • Was surprised when I mentioned that I had read his articles written in a Veda magazine.
  • One of his pen names was “Aung Nyein Oo (or U)”, which is the reverse of his real name.
  • Also wrote as “Saya Beda”. He studies and practices astrology, palmistry, numerology, and Tarot cards.
  • Told me, “Since you know a lot about people and their names, you should try working for projects that can benefit by your skills.”

U Tha Din

  • Taught Political Science at RIT.
  • Close friend of Ko Aye Ko, a member of RUBC.
  • Met him at a SPZP-2012.

  • Taught at BARB (Burma Astro Research Bureau).
  • President of MARB (Myanmar Astro Research Bureau).


  • LSE is known for Economics.
  • Several Burmese studied Economics at LSE.
  • LSE also teaches Political Science.
  • Its full name is the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Ideologies and Theories

  • There are several Ideologies (e.g. Capitalism, Socialism).
  • Most are ideal on paper and not so ideal in practice.
  • The choice of “Burmese Way to Socialism” had dire consequences on the nation.
    Burma lost its status as the “Rice Bowl of Asia” and the envy of neighboring nations to be ultimately designated as LDC (Least Developed Country).
