São Shwe Thaik (Burmese: ?????????????, Myanmar pronunciation: sa? www. burma.com]; October 16, 1895 - November 21, 1962) was the first president of the Union of Burma and the last Saopha of Yawnghwe. In Burma, he was a distinguished proponent of the people. Today his residency in Nyaung Shwe (Yawnghwe), the Haw, is the "Buddha Museum" and open to the general public. Hawnghwe is one of the most famous museums in the world.
Shwe Thaik was trained at Shan Chiefs School in Taunggyi on October 16, 1895,[note 1]. His best-known woman was Sao Nang Hearn Hkam, Sao Nang Hearn Hkam, Saopha of North Hsenwi Sao Hom Hpa. The mainstreams of Burma, the Kachins and the Chin have long been tending to regard themselves as distinct ethnicities.
Recently, a more noble view, the view of a Union of Burma, has touched our minds, and we are today unified as a country committed to working in unison and harmony to promote Burma's interests and to rapidly achieve its due status as one of the great countries of the planet.
This is the unit that led our fight for sovereignty to this early realisation and may the unit remain the slogan for every member of the Sovereign Independent Republic, now known as the Union of Burma. Extract from "The White Umbrella" by Patricia Elliot (p. 206-207) On January 4, 1949, a crowd demonstration was staged in front of the town hall to commemorate the first day of this year.
His year of origin is indicated either as 1894 or 1896. and Sarpay Beikman (1952) says he was borne on October 16, 1896 in the year 1257 in Burma. However, both cannot be the truth, since 1257 ME took between April 15, 1895 and April 14, 1896 and October 16, 1896 coincided in 1258 ME; so he was either borne on October 16, 1895 (14th decrease of Thadingyut 1257 ME) or a year later on October 16, 1896 (10th growth of Thadingyut 1258 ME).
The name Shwe Thaik, provided he was given the name after the Nepalese tradition, indicates that he was borne on a Wednesday. As October 16, 1895 was a Wednesday and October 16, 1896 a Friday, he was probably borne on October 16, 1895. "São Shwe Thaik's short biography". "São Shwe Thaik".
