Walking the street of the central Yangon, I found another bookshop. Some shelves were placed in the storefront and many books lined the bookshelves. Seemingly, this bookstore was a second-hand bookstore.
Unfortunately, most of them were written in Burmese. I couldn't understand what was written on them. Yet I could have a general idea of the contents by looking at the covers. Apparently, most of the books on the shelf were written about the history of Myanmar. I could find the faces of Aung San and his daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi. The books which put Aung San on a cover might be written about the independence of this country and the books which put Aung San Suu Kyi on a cover might be written about the contemporary history of this country.
The parent and child exerted a significant degree of influence on the Burmese history.
Aung San (13 February 1915 – 19 July 1947) was a Burmese politician and revolutionary. He served as the 5th Premier of the British Crown Colony of Burma from 1946 to 1947. Initially he was a communist and later a social democratic politician. He was known as a revolutionary, nationalist, and as the founder of the Tatmadaw (modern-day Myanmar Armed Forces), and is considered as the Father of the Nation of modern-day Myanmar. He was one of the co-founders and first General Secretary of the Communist Party of Burma, one of the armed revolution group during post-colonial Burma after his death.
