Sad But True

Sad But True [83] : Hla Shwe

Saya U Hla Shwe (GBNF) graduated with Textile Engineering in 1969.

He retired as Associate Professor.

When a Boot Licker asked him to end his class to pay respect to a visiting Taing Hmu, he continued teaching. A post about the event caused some alumni (who did not know him) to donate to his medical expenses fund.

He and Saya U Tin Shwe (EP69) passed away about the same time.

They are remembered by Saya U Moe Aung (Tekkatho Moe War) in his poem “To the Shwe Duo”.

He is a Straight forward guy, also jolly guy.

A lot of our Batch guys are Straight Forward Guys. I saw Some Guys still wanting to Lift Balls.

When you are A Straight Forward Guy, better prepare your loopholes or at least One Good Loop Hole.

Then you can say, don’t worry be happy!!!

* Saya U Moe Aung gave me some of his works.

One was a collection of his poems.

Another was a collection of his articles.

I translated selected poems and articles.

* Saya and four other RIT poets — Okpo Maung Yin Maung, Maung Nyunt Htay (Ah Htet Min Hla), Ko Toee (Myit Che) and Win Myint (M72, Kabyaung) published poems related to Swel Daw Yeik.

Bagyee Myat Myo Myint illustrated the poems.

I received copies of the book from two authors.
