University of Yangon

Until 1920, there was no university in Myanmar. Yangon College and Jackson College are both established and open. Because of the English-speaking colleges, they have to follow the rules set by the school. Myanmar needs to be an independent university in that it has to follow the rules of its own country.

There was a need for a separate university in Yangon, Myanmar. In 1909, there were only 208 students at Rangoon College. Johnson College had only 36 students, so it was not enough for a university to be established.

Therefore, the University of Myanmar bill was drafted. In 1915, there were 567 students at Rangoon College and 78 at Jackson College. With the growing number of students it is necessary to establish a university. Yangon University is not set up in a unified system, but other colleges are linked to the opportunity for ethnic nationalities to study in Myanmar through open university campuses. After that, On October 24, 1920, the University of Yangon Act was adopted and approved as the University of Yangon.

Yangon University is located in Kamayut Township. There is a large campus. It is a university with 20 departments, 783 lecturers and 15,593 students. The first university in Myanmar and can be found in colonial works. Being in the heart of Yangon is one of the strengths of the University. There are also prominent places at the University of Yangon. Convocation Hall,

Pindaya Umbrella

Pindaya is well known for the making of paper from mulberry bark. The manufacturing process is rather long. The first process in the paper making is to strip the bark from young branches of the Paper Mulberry. The paper dough, displayed on top of a trunk wood piece, is then beaten with a wooden mallet during several minutes. Later, a bamboo frame covered is settled at the bottom of a tank filled with water. With a stick or with hands, the pulp of paper is diluted in the water and then distributed in a equal. After the pulp has settled, petals and leaves are added to decorate the paper.

A variety of wooden pieces are required to make an umbrella like this. The man of the house, an old friend of Sunshines, makes these on a very simple equipment. The girls put the pieces together, add the paper covering, paint the paper, add lacquer to rain umbrellas and add decorations to shade parasols.A variety of wooden pieces are required to make an umbrella like this.

Toes are a useful tool to hold the bits when piecing together the fine wooden spokes of the frame.Each part of these rib sections are made by hand and put together by hand – and toes.

The final product. These come in all sizes from tiny parasols used for table decoration, to every day umbrellas used by just about everyone, to very large ones used for garden umbrellas.The very large garden umbrellas are much more complicated in their structure and piecing together – but still all by hand. In this workshop, manufacturing process is very interesting. Everything is made by hand. Especially, it is the most famous for Burmese parasols. And then they are completely made by hand. Parasol can be used in summer. Notepads, fans, lampshade and simple paper sheet are also produced from paper.===
