I am a strong supporter of Aung San Suu Kyi and her democratic movement of Burma. I was following her story for many years. She has got lots of admirer in the west especially in England, and her husband happen to be an English gentleman who is no more in this world. I have got close relationship of my Burmese friends who is staying in our state and also at Delhi. I do contribute in their website mizzima.com.
I sometime wander how she must be spending for the last twenty years in house arrest without any outside connection. In the recent interview with BBC after releasing from house arrest I come to know that she keep herself busy by reading, Yoga and listening BBC radio which was the only connection to her with outside world.
It’s really surprised to me that BBC correspondence John Simpso asked to AungSan Suu Kyi about mobile phone which she exposed to her after releasing from house arrest. She was having a tough time to handle it to find out where is the mouth piece and ear piece. Although she was not at Jail the rule is so strict at Burma a simple mobile phone cannot be smuggle in, to her lake site house.
One can imagine how free we are our jail is full of mobile phone and even from our security ward at Government hospital extortion call can be made without any difficulty. I hope we can see her as leader of democratic Burma very soon.
