Federated Shan States ：The Way I see it in the 50s Location Map of Federated Shan States (Shan State' former name) Federated Shan States: The Way I see it in the 50s _ By Khun Hom I am also aware of the keen interests about what really happened during the pre-war period of tranquillity in Federated Shan States. This lasted for nearly over 36 years from its inception in 1922 thr 個人信貸ough to 1959 when the state power was returned to the Shan people. It was similar to the Malays' Federation. When Malaysia got their independence in 1955, the Malay feudalism wasn't dismantled as such, but allowed to develop for further contribution to the Malay society to maintain its cultural heritage. The Malay 西裝people seemed to be quite happy to see a compromised solution and reconciliation that led to the emergence of a democratic country with finger prints of a constitutional Monarchy. The difference being that the "Malay Monarch" takes turns in sharing the symbolic head of state status among their senior Tunku Princes as stipulated by their const 21世紀房屋仲介itution. In contrast, the Shan Saophas (or Sawbwas in Burmese), they relinquished their power not as well prepared. They should have been allowed to continue with their administrative functions until such time that Shan State is gradually transformed into a fully-fledged democratic state. They were pinning their hopes on winning the next election that was s 賣屋cheduled for 1964 then. But that dreamed election never took place, as we all know the reasons why. That was the greatest disappointments of their life that by far surpassed the controversy of the 1949 Panglong Treaty, that was almost equally split by 50:51 in favour of the "UNION" that later turned out to be steeply flawed. When I was brought up as a little boy among the T 結婚ai peasants, I could still recall in the 50s the country was so peaceful, a stranger could walk in the door at any time for an overnight as an unexpected guest. For the sake of courtesy and mutual trusts, the guest usually would then hand over his weapon or a Tai samurai sword to the host until the next day when he leaves. His departure is not meant to be as simple as his arrival empty-hande 租房子d though. This is because he would not dare to leave without bestowing a formal blessing to his host, to whom sometimes it could happen that she/he might, without any hesitation, have to dispose their worldly treasures for the sake of getting blessings from a "heaven sent" stranger. In olden day Federated Shan States, the community spirit was tremendous. A teak and bamboo house could be finished in 48 ho 房地產urs. A ripe paddy field could be harvested in 24 hours with enough feed to keep the whole family nourished the next whole year, come what may, except unforeseen natural disasters. In that 36 years of federation, it had never been necessary for Shan farmers to consume paddy seedlings out of desperation, not even during the oppressive period of WWII. But that was not the case after General Ne Win took over the country. 澎湖民宿 It was downhill all the way. The SPDC troops were mainly responsible for plundering food, livestock and everything they could lay their hands on for the Tatmadaw army in Shan State as they were left to look after themselves by order from their high command. I agree we have a lot in common as far as we are concerned with the rogue generals to defeat. But that is where the similarity ends. As soon as the military regime is toppled, the 酒店兼職 restoration of democracy is a forgone conclusion to the Burmese. To Shan people it means the struggle would only have just begun. So why not strive for freedom and democracy in one stroke.
