I was just a young demonstrator (equivalent to the A.L. now in Myanmar or Pensyarah Pelatih in Malaysia) and my students in early 80’s are now Professors, specialists and some are even Head of Departments and some are quite rich and famous now. But they still remember me and send the presents and even money to me during their annual giving of homage to the teachers.
They sent Kyat 200,000.00 and I give back half to my mother as I had just sent some for my mother and for Zakat donation through her hand to other poor friends and relatives. back in Myanmar.
I donated back the remaining Kyat 100,000.00 to my classmates organising the 50th. year Golden Jubilee of our class’ entry to our Medical College, IMM (now MMU) and giving of homage to our old teachers.
