Interesting facts #MyanmarCoup-#India
~Current Myanmar Army General Min Aung Hlaing ws to retire in July this yr. He's 65.
Reminds me of the drama around #Bajwa's extension.
Few within Myanmar Army r NOT happy abt Hlaing's extension, jst like it happened in P@k Army.
What makes this man interesting--is his stand agnst R0hingy@. He pushed 'em out.
~Within 16 days of coup massive Myitsone dam project hs bn revived. Was suspended in 2017.
CHEENI company hd been lobbying for it.
It ws suspended due to the environmental impact it can cause.
Military says Aung San Suu Kyi hd 6 walkie-talkie sets, which wr not licensed. Documents show it was for her bodyguards. Possible!
Bt there are also walkie talkies which have a range of upto 35miles (56Km).
So did she really fear for her life?

I love how Indian PM #Modi ji repeatedly reminds us that India is the MOTHER of democracy.
Ostensibly Rig ved & Atharv ved both mention words like SABHA,SAMITI & Rajan/Raja (householder/leader).
It also mentions powers of RAJA/King is not ABSOLUTE. He cn b removed by SABHA.
In Mahabharat there's a mention of the word JAN SADAN-- people's committee.
It proves that ancient Indians had a DEMOCRATIC system in place atleast since 10,000 years.
But sceptics will not believe till there's proof. Well then, one should go to a tiny temple in TN.
Inside this tiny temple 1100 yrs old temple, Shri Vaikuntavasa Perumal in Uthiremerur, there r inscriptions on the walls which talk abt method of ELECTING people's representatives, how people should lead their life, and how assets belonging to the temple should be used.
