The Lady and the Peacock

Peter Popham's major new biography of Aung San Suu Kyi draws upon previously untapped testimony and fresh revelations to tell the story of a woman whose bravery and determination have captivated people around the globe Celebrated today as one of the world's greatest exponents of non violent political defiance since Mahatma Gandhi she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize only four years after her first experience of politicsIn April 1988 Suu Kyi retur. Biographies of living people during rapidly changing times have to be difficult for the person who is the subject the author and sometimes even the readers But author Peter Popham s The Lady and the Peacock has been done well and his extensive experience as a journalist shows through The black white dust jacket cover photo by Joachim Ladefoged taken her house arrest back 1998 offers a tiny preview of what s to be found here as we see her riveting eyes looking out at usThe Lady and the Peacock the final chapters are yet to be writtenThere are few in the world today who draw the esteem and respect that Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi does considering her almost lifelong efforts concerning the struggle for democracy as an almost iconic figurehead Author Popham brings the reader through Burma s recent history offering the political background behind the country Suu Kyi s family and father Aung San who founded the modern Burmese army and negotiated Burma s independence from the British Empire in 1947 He was assassinated by rivals in the same year when Suu Kyi was two years oldPeter Popham takes us to where Suu Kyi seemed destined to travel which she did She grew up in India where her mother served as ambassador studied in the UK at Oxford and worked for three years at the UN in New York Working for UN Secretary General U Thant she also did volunteer work at New York City s Belleview Hospital She married author and scholar Michael Aris in 1972 whom she had met while they were in college After spending a year in Bhutan they established themselves in North Oxford in the UK where they raised their two sons Alexander and Kim During this time he did postgrad studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies University of London and obtained a PhD in Tibetan literature in 1978But in 1988 Aung San Suu Kyi returned from Britain to Burma to nurse her sick mother and within six months found herself to be the unchallenged leader of the largest popular revolt in her country s history going from being an collegiate mother in Oxford to a nationally and then a recognized political leader around the worldWhen the National League for Democracy NLD party she co founded won a victory in Burma s first free elections for thirty years winning 392 out of a total 489 seats 80% of the seats a true landslide But the military refused to recognize their right to take office and responded by imprisoning party members and supporters Suu Kyi was herself already under house arrest and barred from taking office by the military junta And it was during this inconceivably painful period of seclusion that she fell back on her Buddhist faith and meditationNational League for Democracy NLD peacock logoOver the past two decades she suffered for a total of fifteen years under house arrest and at a terrible personal toll When she learned that her husband had been diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1999 the Burmese regime refused to grant him a visa to visit her She knew that if she went to see him in the UK she would not be allowed back into Burma again and as a result the couple was never able to say their final farewells to each otherThe words of Ma Thanegi a Burmese writer and artist who became Aung San Suu Kyi s personal aide during the lead up to the elections of 1990 play heavily here as extracts from her diaries are reproduced in this book Through her words we are offered a human view of the very private Aung San Suu Kyi We see a woman who could gleefully sing old 1950s hits and who played the board game Monopoly with such intensity that she and her husband finally agreed to stop playing together to prevent suabblesOther extracts show Suu Kyi s bravery standing up to the Burmese Army along with her annoyances with the challenges and hardships of being on the road in Burma We see her frustrations while dealing with older established politicians in Burma some of whom appeared to be sincerely committed to working together to bring change to Burma but in actual practice were driven solely by their own ambitionsThere are things that stand out in this book such as the 45 black white photos of Aung San Suu Kyi her family and those who influenced her life These include images from her youth her college the house in Rangoon where she was detained for than fifteen years members of the Myanmar junta her NLD party compatriots and a final one with Hillary Clinton during her visit to Suu Kyi s home in December 2011 Before the prologue there s a map of Burma showing the adjacent countries and with an inset of Rangoon All of these offer us visual understanding into her life and surroundingsThe author gives us some good insight into Suu Kyi character her sometimes irreverent sense of humor her sense of traditions her moral commitment her alleged stubbornness and much Yet there s a two dimensional feel to all of this a detached style of writing to all of it In many parts the book reads like a novel making it easy to understand how and why the military junta has been able to sustain its power but also how Suu Kyi and her colleagues were able to effectively provide a powerful alternative to the generals On the other hand there are sections where it seems to bog down where we become immersed in too much detail to the point of distractionThough there s often an almost ponderous feel to this book author Peter Popham provides us with an excellent glossary of Burmese terms in the back of the book a well done index a list of names with explanations of the roles of the people and a thorough list of books and references for further readingSuu Kyi s 1991 book Freedom from Fear describes Burma s political intellectual and literary history in her own words along with her essay My Father a biographical portrait of the father of modern Burma and contains an introduction by her late husband Michael Aris But it is her other work Letters from Burma where she talks about her country her people and about herself in this collection of essays written in the mid 1990 s for a Japanese newspaper Through her own words we see the misfortunes of her people in the most natural and unruffled way as if she was narrating about everyday lifeAuthor Popham s The Lady and the Peacock The Life of Aung San Suu Kyi cannot be described as spellbinding nor is it easy to get through in many places But it s thorough journalism and as an introduction for those wanting to learn about Burma and Aung San Suu Kyi it s a solid 4 star read worthwhile especially for those who only know of Suu Kyi through television clips and news snippetsIn November 2010 after the duplicitous elections in which she played no part Suu Kyi was again freed She was greeted by jubilant crowds but only time will tell what role this extraordinary woman will have in the future of her beloved country The Lady and the Peacock tells this story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her ongoing struggle for democracy but it s a

Splaying dazzling courage in the process Under house arrest for 15 of the previous 20 years she has come close to being killed by her political enemies and her commitment to peaceful revolution has come at extreme personal costIn November 2010 after fraudulent elections in which she played no part Suu Kyi was again freed She was greeted by ecstatic crowds but only time will tell what role this remarkable woman will have in the future of her countr. There is no denying that Aung San Suu Kyi is a remarkable person and there is a fair amount of interesting detail But the author has at times rather obscured this with gushing as her delicate beauty and the incessant references to her fringe and yes one of the chapters of the book is called Super woman By all means in journalism one has to support one s case and to represent what you write with facts and to always have catchy headings But is Peter Popham writing a book or a very one sided long article for some sensational newspaper I find Popham can t seem to distinguish between the two So much is at stake here The definition of democracy how it is relevant to countries where the governor of the land was a king a series of kings down through generations and not only that but a country that went from kingdom to being pressed into colonial yoke by some distant remote insipid monarch George IV So does a transition from democracy work and can it What democracy would it be regardless of such a thing were possible Could it be like India as referenced in this book on than one occasion where voting takes place parties put themselves forward and then the most corrupt takes office and as in other democratic countries in the world the poor get poorer and the rich get richer The history of Burma is very much a myriad of intrigues battles fought won and lost dreams created and shattered and myth and legend is rampant Aung San came from a very obscure background wasn t anyone much in school and then decided to take it upon himself with some cough cough others to free his people from the colonial yoke Which I must add for those living under the yolk there is nothing good from a colonial power Absolutely nothing America may have been a colony once however it was the First Nations and Black people that felt what it really meant to be brutalised and what it meant to be subservient to a foreign power The families that came on the Mayflower had no idea what it meant to be slaves to colonialists To say otherwise is an outright lie Having had past generations of my family in Burma as part of the invading force I can say without hesitation no good came of the British being in Burma So what of Aung San and his desire for an independent Burma There is the current mantra anybody is better than this guy well that isn t true You can t vote for someone just because they are not the guy in power right at this moment You need to know who you are dealing with before you invest something in that person As it was Aung San didn t know what he was dealing with when he signed up with the Japanese Japan may share the same part of the world and they were keen to broker a deal with Burma to rid Asia of the British however neighbours make strange bed fellows As history showed Japan wasn t interested in helping out Burma for independence all empires are hungry for land and will grab it by any means necessary But it could be seen that Aung San was hopping between bed fellows to get what he wanted most at any cost Up to a point he got it Burma became independent of both British interests and Japanese however that resulted in the death of Aung San By this time he had made himself a dynamic personality and like all leaders of movements he was the one and only to be able to achieve what he did Aung San Suu Kyi has inherited that from her father Whether intentionally or not Popham writes freuently how the people of Burma see her as a reincarnation of a Bodhisattva She alone can save Burma through their eyes So what does that mean If she dies before her time or even if not there will surely be another vacuum in Burma History has shown that when many rely on one person and they die everything tumbles For many years all eyes were Burma and wondering who this woman was Popham has that she described herself once as an Oxford housewife No identity whatsoever she was married to a house somewhere in Oxford and had two children Then she comes to a realisation she was somebody s daughter when she is back in Burma A man she doesn t remember on a personal level but a man that had many transformations of character by the people of the country and by the people that said they knew him best History won t really be able to tell us as yet really what sort of man he was Indeed between Peter Popham and other biographers we won t really know what sort of woman Aung San Suu Kyi is Has she only ever been a person caught by mere circumstance Or is she really power hungry anticipating to take Burma back to the older days of yore as the uncrowned ueen of Burma After being held captive in a sense of house arrest for many years where will she guide Burma uite a few promising politicians have felt the need to make sacrifices on their principles Is she going to be one of them When you don t speak up against an injustice to a people you are complicit by your silence The goal for many politicians is the bigger prize which is to mean getting into power But will it be too late then for honesty and integrity because by then of getting into power by courting the big shareholders in this instance Buddhists over Muslims who knows how many other situations will have risen that silence was acted on rather than words Despite Popham s best efforts there is no real halo over the Lady s head She is no super woman At the end of the day she is no human than anyone else before her or after We still cling to our idols our celebrities our demigods as of ancient times past Nor then should it have come as any surprise that American businesses were making deals with the regimes of Burma Which must be pointed out for accuracy sake communism and socialism are not the same things and shouldn t be banded about as such It s very easy to affix titles and names to oneself or a party that has absolutely nothing to do with the party or person s mandate The very notion that a party called the Conservatives would be interested in conversing things In reality that be furthest idea from the party s mandate Shouldn t we therefore despise anything to do with conservation because a party calls themselves Conservatives but are really sucking the life out of a country and its people But no most people would cry Of course not they d say But when it comes down to communism and socialism the root words here being commune meaning to get together and socialism meaning to be social these words are despised by a great many people Most that don t even know what either communism is or socialism or the fact that both are different I do say for those that wish to disparage communism without fully understanding what it is beyond the legacies of Lenin and Stalin that according to many it was Communism to integrate black and white students into one school It was also Communism when in the dirty 30s when tenant farmers wanted a meager raise in their wages and were shot for their Communism And so this book while holds a lot of information it holds a lot that is
