Photo of the Day – The 100th Anniversary of Aung San of Myanmar – Photograph by YE AUNG THU – www.philippineslifestyle.com

Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi greets supporters as she leaves a ceremony to mark the 100th birthday of independence hero Aung San, in the remote central Myanmar town of Natmauk. Known affectionately as ‘Bogyoke’, or General, Aung San is adored in Myanmar and credited with unshackling the country from colonial rule and embracing its ethnic minorities in a vision of unity that unravelled catastrophically in the military-dominated decades that followed his 1947 assassination.
