U Kyaw Tun and Family 


U Kyaw Tun, M.S. (I.P.S.T., U.S.A.), Associate Professor and Head of Department of Chemistry (retd.), Taunggyi Degree College (now University of Taunggyi), University of Mandalay, Myanmar. Officially residing with son Dr. Zin Tun at 691 Upper Wentworth Street,
Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA  L9A 4V6 . Engaged in research work in multi-disciplines for Tun Institute of Learning, in Yangon, MYANMAR.

UKT 191205: The nucleus of family, shown in the black and white photograph, is beginning to faint. I , the father, is now 85. Mother is gone for 15 years. Son is now over 60, and daughter is going to be 60 soon. Eventually the remaining family members will die: everyone will be forgotten. This is the story of every family. Death is the final result. What is more dangerous? It is the carbon-based body getting older, and getting infirm. What about memory that is situated in the brain? With the carbon-based brain gone it will also go.

Doggie's Tale

-- UKT 130613

Mnemonic The Doggie Tale:  
Little doggie cringe in fear -- ŋ (velar),
  Seeing Ella's flapping ears -- ɲ (palatal)
  And, the Shepard's hanging rear -- ɳ (retroflex).
Doggie so sad he can't get it out
  What's that Kasha क्ष when there's a Kha ख ?
  And when there's Jana ज्ञ what I am to do with Jha झ?
On top of all there're husher and hisser, Sha श /ʃ/ and Ssa ष /s/,
  when I am stuck with Theta स /θ/ !" 
Little Doggie don't be sad,
  You are no worse than a Celtic Gnome
  Losing G in his name, he is just a Nome!
