U Saw Linn (C71, GBNF)

Served as the Chief Editor and Publisher of the commemorative SWEL DAW YEIK MAGAZINE for SPZP-2012. He wrote :

ဆရာပူေဇာ္ပြဲႏွင္႔ေတြ႔ဆံုပဲြ၊ ၂၀၁၂-ရန္ကုန္ကို ဂုဏ္ျပဳထုတ္ေ၀သည္႔

Editor’s notes:

  • U Saw Lin’s daughter graciously complied his father’s request to carry as much as possible out of the 90 remaining magazines.
  • 45 were air lifted to Singapore.
  • Saya U Moe Aung said that even carrying back 5 was not easy.

Living Proof

Several sayas wondered what happened to the Swel Daw Bins, which provided Swel Daw Yeik to the engineering students. How did they perish?

Saya U Moe Aung (Tekkatho Moe War) was sad to see the demise of Swel Daw Bins, but he is convinced that virtual Swel Daw Yeik lie deep in the heart of the engineering sayas and students and will live on forever.

  • Ko Saw Linn (C71, GBNF) had a kidney transplant, and had been to ICU at least thrice.
  • Ko Wynn Htain Oo (M72) has a hip replacement surgery several years ago.
  • Ko Myint Pe (M72) had a Stage-3 cancer.

I met them on RIT Alumni Facebook Pages before I met them face to face at the SPZP-2012 Main Organizing Committee meetings.

Their health problems did not prevent them from working feverishly to repay their metta and cetana to their mentors, and to ensure that their former classmates and school mates will have wonderful reunions and flash backs to the good old days.

The three alumni are living proof that Swel Daw Yeik (RIT) Spirit is alive and well.

Ko Zarni Tun (EC78) is an Executive Committee member of RITAA. He was also Vice President of Old Johnian Association.

Ko Sit Nyein (EC78) is the boss of Sigma Cable.

Ko Zarni arranged a meeting with Ko Sit Nyein, Ko Wynn Htain Oo, Ko San Kyu, Ko Aung Khine, and Ko Zeya Moe Lay about YTU Library project.

Ko Sit Nyein pledged to help in everyone possible (e.g. donate some items, provide some items at base cost).

The discussion noted that most “temporary” solutions (due to lack of funds) remain “temporary” for a long time (may be permanently). Young alumni will work with the Ah Ko Gyis to make YTU Library a success.
