fostered nationalist spirit among Burmese people. Leaders of Rangoon

against British imperialist till they could retrieve the lost independence for the 
people, are good examples.The campus of Rangoon University is the 
auspicious place where the nationalists spirit originated. This University

time for today's students to shoulder the national responsibilities. It is our duty
