Sad But True

Sad But True [95]

TO DO : Photo of CO explaining to UCC Visitors

U Hla Min (L T Gwan) matriculated from St. Paul’s High School in 1964. His friends called him Pauk Si. His father lent money to a Pauk Si vendor who would not repay back in cash, so he ate Pauk Si as time and energy permitted.

He graduated with Electrical Engineering in 1970.

He joined UCC as Chief Operator and was called CO.

He met his spouse Daw Tin Win (who was attending Advanced Nurse Training) in UK.

He was healthy. He would often wear just sports shirt in the air-conditioned Computer Room.

When he passed away in his mid-30s, I became a Tone Kyaw. Two government training schools (where I had lectured) offered to send me wreaths. U Moe Hein (Ajala, ChE69) took leave from work to attend my Last Journey.

** Notes

* Need photo of Pauk Si (e.g explaining to UCC visitors)

* Hla Min (Pauk Si) and La Min (Lushwin Daw) are both Paulians and EE70.

* A young Hla Min (Ko Pauk) worked for U Win Htein (PWD, GBNF). He was injured while jumping on to a boat.

* Tone Kyaw = some one who is wrongly believed to have passed away.

* There are at least three Tone Kyaw.

* U Han Sein (C69) became a Tone Kyaw when he was inadvertently listed in the GBNF List of 69ers. The compilers were unaware that he was sentenced 20 years by a Kangaroo Court. He was released after 17 years. He lost his family.

* Saya Dr. Tin Hlaing (M63, Singapore) became a Tone Kyaw when Dr. Tin Hlaing (Former Principal of Maritime studies) passed away in Singapore. Some RIT alumni wrongly posted the news.
