General Aung San

Aung San died in 1276 of the Burmese year. He was born on the 1st day of the new moon (February 13th, 1915 AD) in the early morning of Saturday morning in Nat Mauk City to U Fa, a lawyer, and Daw Su, a merchant.

A brief childhood

He is the youngest among 6 brothers and sisters (including those who died in childhood, 9 siblings). Aung San’s three brothers started school at a young age. However, Aung San says that he will go to school after his mother joins him. Daw Su used to be very gentle with her younger son and let him go to school only if he wanted to.

Thus, Aung San started school when he was 8 years old. When his brother Aung Than entered the novitiate, Aung San said that he also wanted to become a monk. My mother immediately took the opportunity to point out that she would need to learn to read and write before she could.

Aung San’s first school was Natmak U Thobita Monastery. It is a so-called secular school that teaches not only metaphysics but also some modern sciences. However, English is not taught in Natmak school. He moved to the National School of Oil Creek at the age of 13.

When he arrived at Neru Chao, he was under the tutelage of his older brother, U Ba Vinh, who was working as a school teacher. At the age of 15, he won the U Shwe Bo Gold Medal and Scholarship Award, which is awarded to first place students in Buddhist schools and national schools in the seventh grade examination.

National schools emerged from the strike against the Yangon University Act in 1920. Opponents felt that the Act was intended to restrict higher education to a privileged few.

During World War II

In 1939, shortly after the Second World War broke out in Europe, the branch of colonialism, Seeing it as a point of independence, he helped Lord Aung San to establish the exit gang. Dr. Ba Maw’s Poor People’s Party Doba Burma Association Mr. Nu determined that the gang formed by students and private politicians was the invention of Mr. Aung San. The exhortation to the public was to support the British military efforts only if they agreed to grant independence after the war. If the British government does not make such a declaration, it must vigorously oppose military efforts. In response, the British government arrested many nationalist activists. By the end of 1940, many leaders and Dr. Ba Mao were in prison. A warrant was issued to arrest Lord Aung San, but he was able to hide and escape as he was warned in time.
