I am a life-long learner. I believe and practice the Pillars of Learning:

  • Learning to know
  • Learning to do
  • Learning to be
  • Learning to live

Thane Myint (PBRS) added : Then comes a time to learn to let go of all things.

Posts and Objectives

I have published about 3000 posts. I initially named then as “Trivia”. I have since revised them and named the titles with appropriate categories.

My primary objective is to pay back to my beloved land, my alma mater, my mentors and colleagues.

My secondary objective is to provide topics of interest to scholars and historians (especially in Myanmar).

My tertiary objective is to coax SME (Subject Matter Experts) to review my posts and provide suggestions for improvement. I also want them to join me in the dissemination of knowledge, experience and wisdom.
