Feedback from U Aye Myint (C72)

Who is Saw Maung Maung Htwe? It seems that I knew him in RIT if am right. We both sat together in front of RIT in our past young active days. We were chatting in my last days in RIT in 1972 just before some days to leave my beloved RIT where I am a final year hostel student staying room E69 of RIT hostel Block E where U Nyi Hla Nge was our hostel manager .

I recall his face on the Lake side photo that you posted. I remember his face similar with one that I met him in our RIT young student days in 1966-1972. We were dear and near friends staying in RIT Hostel. He was a very friendly national student. He was not the same major with me. I did not know when he passed and lleft RIT. Is he still living in Yangon or moved to places (e.g. USA , Australia ,UK, Canada like many intelligent RIT alumni Sayars and students . U Maung Maung Htwe was seemingly active in your photo. Good luck
