Rangoon, the than capital of southeast Asian country Burma presently known as Myanmar was occupied by British Indian forces under the expansionist zeal of British empire after 3 successive war starting from eighteen hundred twenty four and finally resulting into inclusion of Burma in British India in eighteen hundred eighty five. In 1942 world war 2 broke out and Japanese imperial forces attack the Southeast Asian colonies of British Empire under the slogan of Asia for Asian with this came the news of Allied reverses from all over Southeast Asia. The British had evacuated, the white residents and generally left the subject people to their fate results into anger and protest all over British India. During all this the BURMA campaign starts primarily between the forces of the British Empire and China, with support from the United States, against the invading forces of the Empire of Japan, Thailand, and the Indian National Army constituted of prisoners of war of British Indian Army under Mohan Singh, an Indian officer of the British Indian Army in Malaya and later under Subhash Chander Bose. Japanese conquest of Burma: Japanese objectives in Burma were initially limited to the capture of Rangoon (now known as "Yangon"), the capital and principal seaport. This would close the overland supply line to China and provide a strategic bulwark to defend Japanese gains in British Malaya and the Dutch East Indies. Japanese advance to the Indian frontier: After the fall of Rangoon in March 1942, the Allies attempted to make a stand in the north of the country (Upper Burma), having been reinforced by a Chinese Expeditionary Force. The Allies were also faced with growing numbers of Burmese insurgents and the civil administration broke down in the areas they still held. Meanwhile Heavy Japanese Reinforcement after capture of Singapore, collapse of newly formed Burma Corps and with their forces cut off from almost all sources of supply, the Allied commanders finally decided to evacuate their forces from Burma. Under great odds Burma Corps managed to make it most of the way to Imphal, in Manipur in India just before the monsoon broke in May 1942, having lost most of their equipment and transport. There, they found themselves living out in the open under torrential rains in extremely unhealthy circumstances. The army and civil authorities in India were very slow to respond to the needs of the troops and civilian refugees. The Japanese invasion of India 1944: The British were led by Lt. Gen. William Slim, a brilliant tactician who re-formed and retrained the Eastern Army after its crushing defeat in Burma. The British and Indian forces were supported by planes commanded by the United States Army Gen. Joseph Stilwell. Once the Allies became certain that the Japanese planned to attack, General Slim withdrew his forces from western Burma and had them dig defensive positions in the hills around Imphal Valley, hoping to draw the Japanese into a battle far from their supply lines. But none of the British commanders believed that the Japanese could cross the nearly impenetrable jungles around Kohima in force, so when a full division of nearly 15,000 Japanese troops came swarming out of the vegetation on April 4, the town was only lightly defended by some 1,500 British and Indian troops. Race for Rangoon: Though the Allied force had advanced successfully into central Burma, it was vital to capture the port of Rangoon before the monsoon to avoid a logistics crisis. The Japanese occupation cause hardship for people and ill treatment by Japanese force resulted in a national uprising within Burma and the defection of the entire Burma National Army to the allied side. In addition to the allied advance, the Japanese now faced open rebellion behind their lines. With reversal for Japanese forces all over South East Asia in 1945 British Indian forces eventually recaptured the Rangoon. Result of Burma campaign: The military and political results of the Burma campaign have been contentious on the Allied side. In military terms, the Japanese retained control of Burma until the result of the campaign was irrelevant to the fate of Japan. It was recognized by many contemporary US authorities and later American historians that the campaign was a "sideshow" and (apart from distracting some Japanese land forces from China or the Pacific) did not contribute to the defeat of Japan, although the recovery of Burma was reckoned a triumph for the British Indian Army. After the war ended, a combination of the pre-war agitation among the Burma population for independence and the economic ruin of Burma during the four years' campaign made it impossible for the former regime to be resumed. Within three years, both Burma and India were independent.

Wide shot of slum STORYLINE: One in four of Myanmar's households live below the poverty line, according to the World Bank, and as the country's military junta continues to spend huge amounts on its new capital and the military budget, people in Yangon's poor neighbourhoods are suffering. AP Television went to the slums of the former capital Yangon, and saw the daily hardships people suffered. Many people live on monthly salaries amounting to little more than a few dollars, and residents say they barely have enough to eat. "Sometimes I have to borrow money when I'm sick because we don't have extra money," one resident said. "Life is really hard, it's not just me, it's everyone," said one of the locals, Hla Soe. Those too poor to afford private housing can rent a bed in a boarding house. One construction worker shares a room of approximately 2.5 square metres with his family of nine. "It's difficult to sleep, move and eat," Saw Ba Myint said. "It is a hard life." US sanctions against the country have hit hard, and other foreign investment has largely stayed away because of the legal uncertainties and the policies of the repressive regime. Humanitarian organisations have been increasingly complaining that the ordinary people of Myanmar are forced to turn to opium production, child labour and prostitution in a bid to escape the poverty trap. But the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) says the overall situation for children in the larger towns is considerably better than in rural and urban resettlement areas. Myanmar has been ruled by the military since 1962. The new administrative capital is Naypyidaw. The current group of generals came to power in 1988 after the brutal suppression of a pro-democracy campaign that brought Aung San Suu Kyi to prominence. It called elections in 1990 but refused to hand over power when Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy party won. Since then it has jailed hundreds of dissidents. Suu Kyi, a Nobel laureate, has spent about 10 of the last 16 years under house arrest. Myanmar has pledged to allow democracy under strong pressure from its neighbours as well as the US and other Western powers, but has so far failed to deliver.

I had a recent day off and seized the opportunity to explore some of the sights in Yangon (Rangoon) former capital of Myanmar (Burma). As Myanmar has been a closed country for many years, tourists are only just starting to discover this fascinating place, and as a result there isn't a huge amount of things to see. Regardless, I'm not letting that stop me from doing some exploring - I found my way to the National Museum, People's Park and the glorious Shwedagon Puya (Pagoda) on foot on a hot, sunny Sunday. Here's what I thought... Music: Pombeii by Bastille & Paradise by Coldplay via YouTube Capture

The city located at the confluence of Yangon and Bago River, away 30 km from the Gulf of Martaban. In November 2005, the capital city moved from Yangon to Naypyidaw in Mandalay province. Naypyidaw officially became the new capital of Myanmar since March 26th, 2006. Compared to other major cities in Southeast Asia, Yangon is relatively underdeveloped. The construction is largely developing due to foreign investment from China and Singapore. Many commercial buildings and houses have been built in the city center. Yangon is the place which has the most colonial buildings in East Asia today. The government office in the building was built in colonial time (such as Myanmar Supreme Court, City Hall, Bogyoke Market and the General Hospital are being planned reinforcement upgrade.

English/Nat Baton wielding Burmese riot police have chased protesting students through the streets of the capital, Rangoon. Monday's clashes followed a protest Saturday that marked the largest demonstration of civil unrest since Burma's democracy uprising of 1988. Military intelligence have accused pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi of inciting the student unrest and confined her to her home. But both the Nobel Peace Prize winner and the students have denied any links. Following a violent melee between riot police and students on Saturday, the military government closed universities in the hope of quelling student protests. But the students weren't put off by the show of force and a demonstration erupted Monday in front of campuses in Burma's capital, Rangoon. About 150 students sat in front of the locked main gate. They are demanding an end to police brutality, the right to form a students' union and more freedom and human rights. At midday, about 250 students began marching down Kyimyindine Road toward the U-S Embassy in downtown Rangoon. Their numbers soon swelled to several hundred. They held aloft portraits of General Aung San, the country's independence leader and father of Aung San Suu Kyi, while shouting "Give us freedom", "We are united" and "Open the schools". A phalanx of 100 riot police took positions on the road to block the marchers' route to the embassy, which had been a focal point of protests during the nationwide democracy uprising of 1988. University professors had appealed to students to turn back and avoid a possible violent confrontation. The sit-in lasted about two minutes before students rose and once again walked toward the embassy. But riot police armed with shields and batons began a steady march straight toward the students, who then turned and fled back up Kyimyindine Road and into side streets. The police pursued, and students began throwing rocks as they approached. Police then began chasing journalists, attempting to strike them with their batons. About 10 troop carriers with 30 to 40 soldiers aboard chased after the students. Monday's clashes followed a protest Saturday that marked the largest demonstration of civil unrest since Burma's democracy uprising of 1988. Military intelligence accused Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, of inciting the anti-government demonstrations and have detained her at her home. Both the students and Suu Kyi have denied any links.

Tin Pa Pa Min from Rangoon, tour guide to Burma - Tin Pa Pa Min trip leader to Burma Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Yangon (Burmese) is a former capital of Burma (Myanmar) and the capital of Yangon Region. Yangon is the country's largest city with a population of over five million, and is the most important commercial centre, although the military government officially relocated the capital to Naypyidaw in March 2006. Although Yangon's infrastructure is undeveloped compared to those of other major cities in Southeast Asia, it has the largest number of colonial buildings in the region today. While many high-rise residential and commercial buildings have been constructed or renovated throughout downtown and Greater Yangon in the past two decades, most satellite towns that ring the city continue to be deeply impoverished. Parks and gardens =============== The largest and best maintained parks in Yangon are located around Shwedagon Pagoda. To the southeast of the gilded stupa is the most popular recreational area in the city – Kandawgyi Lake. The 150-acre (61-ha) lake is surrounded by the 110-acre (45-ha) Kandawgyi Nature Park, and the 69.25-acre (28-ha) Yangon Zoological Gardens, which consists of a zoo, an aquarium and an amusement park. West of the pagoda towards the former Hluttaw (Parliament) complex is the 130-acre (53-ha) People’s Square and People's Park, (the former parading ground on important national days when Yangon was the capital.) A few miles north of the pagoda lies the 37-acre (15-ha) Inya Lake Park – a favorite hangout place of Yangon University students, and a well-known place of romance in Burmese popular culture. Hlawga National Park and Allied War Memorial at the outskirts of the city are popular day-trip destinations with the well-to-do and tourists.
