Anjali was 18 years old in 2006 and studied in Singapore; without our direction or instruction, she went for the first time. Still, it was a communist moment, which was very restrictive; therefore, she could not go to my Uncle Vaju Kakas’ hometown, Pyapon.
In 2009, She went again, without letting us know, with her own money, on a very challenging and risky tour to Myanmar. From Rangoon, she had to use a Bus, a boat, a motorbike, and police help (without any communication in English). She finally reached Pyapon to bring me a” Goldmine of info.””” on our family’s historical photos.

When she went on a Myanmar trip, she had yet to learn how she would get there. My daughter Anjali went twice to bring his Diary and some Personal effects; we found some very Rare and Historical photos in his Diary,
