WHO and his Mom

Update : November 15, 2022

Mae Thila Yins need support

WHO’s Mom

မေန့တေန့ကလိုဘဲထင္ရပါတယ္
ဒါေပမဲ႕ေက်းဇူးရွင္မာမားကြယ္လြန္တာအနွစ္ ၄၀ေတာင္ျပည့္ပါျပီ

It seems only like yesterday.
But four decades have passed since my beloved mother and benefactor passed away.
အေမကသူတို့ငယ္ငယ္ကရင္းနွီးျကြမ္းဝင္တဲ႕မယ္သီလရင္ေတြဘယ္လိုဆြမ္းခက္ခဲတာေတြကိုေျပာျပဘူးတယ္မျကာမျကာပါဘဲ

My mom often told us how Mae Thila Yin (nuns) that were close to her had difficulty to get alms.


သားေရ
ဘုန္းျကီးလိုမဟုတ္မယ္သီလရွင္ေတြကအရမ္းကိုခ်ို့တဲ႕ျကပါတယ္တတ္နိုင္သမ်ွလွဳရင္ခ်န္မထားပါနဲ႕ဆိုတဲ႕စကားကိုလဲအမွတ္ရလို့ဒီနွစ္ပတ္လည္ေန့မွာအိမ္နားကသီလရွင္ေက်ာင္းကိုဆန္နဲ႕ဝတ ၱဳေငြသြားလွဳမယ္

She said, “Thar Yay (My dear son),
Unlike monks, Mae Thila Yins do not receive enough alms to support their living. If you make donations, take care of them also.”
In memory of my beloved mother — on her 40th death anniversary — I will offer rice and garawa money to the Mae Thila Yin Kyaung near my house.

Any resemblance?

အေမကြယ္လြန္တဲ႕အႏွစ္၄၀ျပည့္ေန့မွာအေမ့ဓါတ္ပံုကိုျကည့္ေနရင္းငါနဲ႕တေနရာေတာ့တူေနတယ္လို့သတိထားမိပါတယ္

On the 40th anniversary of my mother’s demise, I looked at her photo and felt that there is some resemblance between the two of us.


ရုပ္ကေတာ့မတူ
အေမကေခ်ာတယ္
ကိုယ္ကသိတဲ႕အတိုင္းရုပ္ျကမ္း

Regarding beauty, there is no resemblance
She was beautiful
I am far from handsome


အေမနဲ႕ကိုယ္ကစိတ္ေတာ့အေတာ္တူတယ္
ေခါင္းမာတာေတြ
စိတ္ျပတ္တာေတြမိုက္တာေတြ

Much resemblance in our Seit (Mind and Way of thinking)
Hard headed
Decisive
Unafraid [to the extent of being “Mite”]


ဓါတ္ပံုမွာတူေနတာအေသအခ်ာသတိထားေတာ့
လားလား
မထီတရီအျပံဳး
ဟုတ္တယ္
မထီတရီအျပံဳး

A careful comparison of the two photos showed
Intriguing smiles
Yes
Subtle and intriguing smiles
