U Tin Maung Thant / Ah Pho Gyi left PPBRS (Private Primary Boundary Road School) to join his father U Thant (Permanent Representative of Burma to UN).

During his visit to Burma in mid 1962, U Tin Maung Thant fell from a bus on May 21st and passed away. He was 21 years old. His last journey was attended by Diplomats.

The funeral procession of U TMT was grander than that of Commodore Than Pe (first member of Revolutionary Council to pass away). CTP was တာoန်ခံ / Minister of Health and Education.
