All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Divide them and You will Rule

Power does not come from the people who are united
Their power stays with them
Power comes from the people when they are divided
As divided power is weak – to be controlled by
Someone who finds the opportunity

Opportunity does not always come
Opportunity must be created
Divide the people to rule the people – one group rules the other
Opportunity divides
Inequality divides
Conflict divides

The ruled will be eager to be ruled
The followers will be eager to follow
The believers will be eager to believe
They will keep themselves kept
They will trap themselves trapped
They will tie themselves tied
They will lie to themselves lied

People are divided when
They do not follow the rules of unity
They break rules and expect others do too

They blackmail themselves blackmailed
They trust by means of betrayal
They loyal by means of antisocial
They rule but they do not
