U Saw Lin (C71) served as Secretary of the RIT Civil Engineering Association. He succeeded

His contributions include :

  • Publisher of the MES Technical Digest
  • Chair of the SPZP-2012 Preparation/Implementation Committee and Head of four (or so) subcommittees including Logistics and Security
  • Chief Editor of the Commemorative Issue of “Swel Daw Yeik Magazine” for SPZP-2012
  • Publisher of limited reprints of the 20+ RIT Annual Magazines
  • Founder and moderator of “bitritalumni” Facebook Page.

I visited Yangon twice in 2012.

During my first visit, he hosted a welcome dinner at Feel restaurant to meet U Ohn Khine, Saya U Aung and several alumni. His son-in-law gave us a ride. He gave me an autographed copy of “Selected Cartoons from RIT Magazines and Set Hmu Thadinzin” and told me that a commemorative issue will be published by four (or more) generations of famous “RIT Cartoon Box” cartoonists (some who made to national and international fame).

During my second visit, he gave a ride to attend the SPZP-2012 Preparation Meeting.

He posted me via air mail some MES Technical Digests.

Despite having medical problems and several visits to ICU, he gave 100% for the success of RIT-related projects in general, and SPZP-2012 in particular.

Sad to learn that he passed away.

Glad to know that his works live on.
