Burma? Myanmar? A new freedom of discussion with name
For one of the country's best-known linguist, it means the right to scold the name "Myanmar", which the former army rule formally conferred on the nation and compelled its people to do so. However, the army has had such a strong impact on daily routine for many years that the generals' renunciation of authority in the past year has brought about changes in lifestyles far beyond the political sphere.
Authors and literary scholars are free to discuss the use of words and phrases that are forbidden under the regime. Myanmar, in a nutshell, has started to look for a nationhood that has been set by its own peoples, not the monastic visions of warlords. The focus in a state with 135 recognised indigenous groups is a more free and free discussion on the relations between the Myanmar minority population and the nation's minority population, an issue that was never fully heard during Burma's army government, mainly because the army was at war with a number of minority nationalities.
In Yangon, at a meeting entitled National Identity and Citizenship in 21 Century Myanmar, the bull was the dominion of the Myanmar army ruling group, a group that included the army and the highest statesmen. Shan Panellist Yin Yin Nwe condemned a company in which the vast majority gained more advantages and better service.
One of the panelists from the Chin group, of which many Christians are members, said that the current regime and constitution still favour Buddhism. Myanmar's primary issue at the meeting was whether it would become a crucible or a less inclusive city. According to the shared views at the meeting, the issue of racial identities is likely to go for years.
However, spokespersons said it was a yardstick for the changes in the state that such a gathering was taking place at all. However, on some subjects, such as the fundamental issue of what the state should be known as, old ways of authoritarianism are dying difficult. As many young people in Burma flinch on the name of the land, Tha Noe and other philologists say they strongly support the way the army changed it and how the general tried to use the tongue to form their messages.
Unclearly, why the army forbade the name Burma, which was used not only by colonisers in Britain, but also by the Burma liberation movements that were fighting them. Now that the state is on the road to a more democratically inclusive community, Tha Noe said he hopes that the speech will develop in a "natural process" rather than through the dictate of a selfish warrior.
Following the move to the recently constructed capitol Naypyidaw - with its magnificent administration office and a huge army museums - the administration office in Yangon was closed and allowed to decay in the tropic heats. However, the detail of these auction are now being questioned and civil society groups, such as the attorneys who are struggling against the reconstruction of the courthouse, are becoming louder and louder to preserve what they call domestic treasure.
Conservation is in part a question of aesthetic, but also seems to be inseparably connected with issues of identification. In Yangon city centre there is a Buddhaist pit, a Hindu shrine, a religious building, a religious building and even a synaagogue in a land with few Jews. Mr Kyaw Yin Hlaing, who was studying with Benedict Anderson, a scientist known for his work on how "imagined communities" become a nation, said that a nation's identities could turn out to be impossibly in a land with so many different ethnical groups, tongues and tradition.
