* History of the region */span> * >>
The Bogale (Burmese: ??????????????[bò??lé mjo?n]; also called Bogalay) is a small town in the municipality of Bogale, Ayeyarwady in the Myanmar (Burma). Situated in the southwestern part of Myanmar/Burma on the continent. Bogale must begin with its first known people. It is thought that the Mons first lived in the area in 3000 BC.
Though most of Mons' notes and scriptures have been ruined by battle or just over the years, the Chinese speaking Moravian custom says that the Mons began to introduce Christian Buddhism into their civilization around 300 BC. In the ninth c. the Mons are said to own the largest part of today's south of Myanmar.
In 1472, after a brief loss of regional authority to the Kingdom of Bagan, the Mons returned under King Dhammazedi to regain command of the south of Myanmar. In 1472-1492, during the 20-year rule of King Dhammazedi, the area now surrounded by the municipality of Bogalay underwent a period of fast economical development and an expansion of our culture with Theravada Buddhist origins.
It has become a pivotal trade area in Southeast Asia. Until 1757 the Mons in the south of Myanmar had been deprived of their powers and the Konbaung dynasty had been incepted. Alaungpaya, who took command of South Myanmar and united Northern and South, was the chief. Myanmar's capitol was founded in Rangoon under the Konbaung dynasty.
At the end of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Britain had acquired full command of all of Burma through the three Anglo-Burmese wars. The British invasion of Burma has dramatically transformed the cultural life of Burma's Bogalay Township region. Christianity began to infiltrate the suburbs of Burma. During the early 1900s, Burma's people of the South started to protest for their liberty from Britain.
Until 1923, violent protest against the Brits led to the election of a lawmaker in Burma with restricted government. Students' organizations to accelerate the liberation of Burma from Austro-India were organised and helped to ease the 1930 peasants' uprising. Eventually, in 1937, Britain approved the separation of Burma from India and permitted Burma to choose a full legal body with full clout.
1962 the present Burmese army ruling Myanmar took over the rule of the state. They were liberated from holding political and legislative elections and were used as a guardianship over their people. The junta in 1992 resolved to give back to the population democratically elected. The junta, however, declined to give up its powers and placed Aung San Suu Kyi under several years of home detention.
The Nargis storm hit the south of Myanmar on 2 May 2008. As a result of the hurricane, several hundred thousand people and more refugees have died in Burma. At the moment, the junta's reaction or the absence of a reaction to the crises has highlighted the cruelty of the foreign rule.
Bogale Township has a very wealthy and varied cultural heritage due to its high number of people. The " name system " in this area, as in Myanmar as a whole, differs greatly from the existing name system in the West. There is no such term as "family name" in Burma's civilization.
To the elderly, their name precedes U (pronounced Oo) and Daw and are the equivalent of Mr and Mrs. The difference between the Bogalay township name system and the West is encouraged by the fact that postmarriage wives keep their families in Burma. The lack of a surname in the area makes it very hard, if not even unbearable, to trace its heritages.
Buddhism is the main religious denomination of the area, as is Burma as a whole. To be more precise, Theravada Buddhism is widely spread throughout the area. Bogalay community believe in incarnation. Burma's Buddhists' final aim is to lead an almost sinless existence so that a human being can attain the highest level of incarnation, nirvana.
There are Christians and Muslims as small minority groups within the community of Bogalay. Bogale community celebrates some of the same celebrations that take place in the West. It is customary for lovers of the newlyweds and the bridegroom to present presents to the two men before the marriage service. As in the United States to get wed, a pair can have a great party or go to the top down goverment house and subscribe the paperwork over.
If a beloved is ill and close to dying, it is characteristic for Burmese to deliver presents such as fruit or tinned grain to the ill one. Unfortunately, many do not trust Bogalay township clinics and patients often suffer from common diseases that can be managed with common contraceptives.
Thingyan is another of the ceremonies that is widespread in the population of Bogale municipality. During the three day long dance classes, folk take to the street to dance folk dance and art to introduce the new year in the Myanmar calender. Youngsters in the city have a tradition of throwing waters at crowds of street theatregoers to signal their own sin or wrongdoing.
Myanmar/Burma Bogale Township has a lot of nature reserves that fuel its economies. Produced from fossil fuels, the suppressive junta taxes the most. In the Bogalay township, residents see little or no benefits from the tax on their produce and trade.
Beyond the great borders of the town, the streets are at best poor and the inhabitants are virtually isolated from the great town of Bogale. Due to the perfect position of the township Bogale at the foot of the deltas, the agricultural sector is a major industry in the area. Bogale Township is one of the biggest producer of rices in Myanmar.
Typical processing of paddy is done in Bogalay city centre plants. Bogale's biggest of these plants has 2,500 employees in the city. Germany's junta, the country's junta, taxes regional travel and profit. It is an important income stream for the army regimes. The Bogale Township's other major industry is forest management.
Wood is felled in the area and is worked in plants. Wood is usually either shipped abroad within Southeast Asia or to the less forested areas of the North. Environmental activists abroad criticize the speed at which plants have been felled in the area.
Bogale municipality's present policy position is characteristic of the remainder of Myanmar/Burma. Workers in Bogale community are suffering from the repression of the junta. In Myanmar, the junta came to rule in 1962. In 1992, the junta conducted "free democracy elections" for the first year in three decade-s.
The electoral process was won by a land slide by Aung San Suu Kyi, but the army declined to give up its powers. Since 1992 Than Shwe has led the horrific junta in Myanmar. The Bogale community was constantly afraid to speak out against the junta during a war. But the oppression of the population in the more densely populated, highly urbanised areas of the township of Bogale was not nearly as great as that of its rivals in the small townships on the edge of the township of Bogale.
These small towns, where large numbers of minority groups were living, were the scene of wide-spread, gruesome ethnical cleansings by the junta. During the years and evenings before the NLD administration, the horrors the junta committed in this Bogale township area were a burning issue among multinational organisations and defenders of fundamental freedoms.
The Nargis clone was the most deadly catastrophe ever registered in Burma. Bogale Township in the south of Myanmar was one of the most affected areas of the cycle that struck the area on 2 May 2008. 90% of the houses in Bogale's city centre are said to have been damaged by the tropics storms.
In the Bogalay Township alone, more than 10,000 deaths were estimated by civil servants. This figure could increase drastically without adequate assistance and the rebuilding of the area. Over and above the difficulties faced by the Bogale community in the middle of the cycle, their own governments have done bad work to help the area.
Once the reports of the devastating events in South Burma reached abroad, help was provided by innumerable nations and NGOs. The Burmese junta, however, declined to allow external assistance for the time being. While the junta said they would take the help and the funds, they rejected any alien labour.
The case of Burma is currently being referred to the United Nations. UNO is investigating possible infringements of people' s right in areas hardly affected by the Nargis cyclone, such as the Bogale Township.
