Burmese Gandhi – Aung San Suu Kyi! Storm of Burmese democracy

A Lady with an angelic fist has spent almost 20 years of her life in some or the other form of detention just to bring democracy in her country Burma. Overtime she has become an example of being Burmese Gandhi behind whom the entire nation is following on her footsteps.

The 65 year old lady who has left no stone unturned to make Burma a democratic country and lift the people lives by protecting their human rights and their freedom has suffered a lot in her personal life.
“It is a famous saying that when you work for your country you lose your family”. The sacrifices made by Aung San Suu Kyi are un-matched and incomparable. She was not allowed to see her two sons or her husband, who died of cancer in March 1999.
The military authorities offered to allow her to travel to the UK to see him when he was gravely ill, but she felt compelled to refuse for fear she would not be allowed back into the country.
She has grandchildren she has never met. She has now become a symbol of peace and nobility to the world whose actions has spoken louder than her words. Her campaigns and her presence have always troubled the dictators of Burma and their subjects.
In 1991, a year after her National League for Democracy won an overwhelming victory in an election the junta later nullified, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
The committee chairman, Francis Sejested, called her “an outstanding example of the power of the powerless”. She was sidelined for Burma’s first elections in two decades on 7 November 2010 but released from house arrest six days later.

Thousands of supporters gathered to hear her issue a call for Burmese people to work together for change.
She is the daughter of General Aung San who was the country’s independence hero and was assassinated during the transition period in July 1947, just six months before independence. However assassinator didn’t knew that time that one day the legacy of Gen; Aung San would lived for ever and be carried by her daughter who have taken it on new level giving a new meaning of peace to it.
Her visit to India and later on to UK transformed her into a completely different person who became an inspiration to millions of suppressed people waiting to see a ray of democratic freedom in their lives.
Her inspirations of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi transformed her into an inspiration to the world that now has brought several changes in lives of Burmese people and have highlighted the issue of her people to the world hence making the whole international community think for Burma.
Dictatorships neither have any future nor does it have any legitimacy for long term. People have their say and their voice should not be crushed at any cost.
Banning Aung San Suu Kyi from running for premiership of the country is completely unjustified even though the government has indirectly pointed out on her but still it has cleared its intentions against the lady who wants to work for her people, for her country.
A lady who has cared for others whereas the leaders who have ruled Burma from decades have never cared even for a single citizen. Democracy is the light of freedom, a system where people rule, where their rights flourish un-regulated.
This century is belonged to people not the rulers, the world has risen from suppression now and its storm will only hold when it will sweep the pillars of dictators from every corner of this great world of civilizations.
The support shown by the International community and the efforts made by Burmese people and the respected Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi has started to bear the fruits of change which will for sure bring the enormous prosperity in the lives of the people there.
It is our fundamental responsibility to support such people like Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi who have not only bring change in the lives of Burmese people but also has given a hope to others in the nations suffering from the epidemic of tyrant regimes.
