Chapter Summary

An American oil driller at Yenangyaung once said the same thing to U Pu, a member of Ba Maw's Freedom Bloc in the pre-war Burmese legislature. Burma's first premier was Dr. Ba Maw, a European-educated lawyer and, in the words of one British writer, 'a man of immense vanity who looked and behaved like a film-star', who had come into prominence as the defence lawyer for Saya San after the 1930 rebellion. Ba Maw could profit politically from the flight of the chettyars to solve one of Burma's most persistent economic and social problems might suggest that, like many Burmese, he disliked the presence of the Indian community in South-East Asia.
