Thank you again Kay Thwe (Please forgive me for purposely left the Burmese custom of putting MA or DAW in front of your name as I regarded your name as a Pen Name of an Author).

Killing fields of ABSDF under Dr Naing Aung and Dr Aung Naing

Killing fields of ABSDF under

Dr Naing Aung and Dr Aung Naing

or

The Forgotten Justice under the shadow of the curse

Dear other bloggers, editors and publishers,

                I hope some of you could remember the following true story occurred during 1990/1995 at the ABSDF, upper Burma student rebel camp, in the Burma’s Kachin State, near the China border. There were some 40 anti-government activists, unjustly tortured and sadly killed by fellow activists. I was one of them and this could be called as the memoirs of a student revolutionary.

Please kindly read to taste some selected pages of my chronicle and if you wish to publish this teaser, please feel free to do so.

I would like to discuss the future publisher who would be interested to publish the full book. I wrote it into a story form rather than as a plain diary to attract the reader’s attention and for easier and pleasurable reading.

As some of you may be experienced authors and may be the experts in Burma politics, I hope any one of you would be interested to edit the whole book and find a publisher for me. We could discuss about the terms and conditions if you are interested.

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely,

 SMAR Nyi Nyi
