Burmese were so brutal the mothers in neighboring Indian State of Asam todays are still using the notorious Burmese General Min-gyi Maha-thiha-thura as a bogey-man to scare their young children if they don't behave.

And in this civilized world with internet and Facebook and I-phones Burma is still the only country with such an arcane law grossly violating the basic liberty and fundamental human rights of her every citizen. Unbelievable!
My First Midnight Search – Part 1

In the eyes of brown-skinned dark-faced Burmese boy like me the fair-skinned white-faced Kachin girls were all so very pretty. And this girl right in front of me was much prettier than all I'd seen in this town.
We were so close I felt like I could reach out and touch her. With a short black hair like a young boy, her young and very-fair face was a typically angular with a pointed chin on her perfectly oval jaw and she had a short necklace of jade beads around her slender white neck.
The law still imposes mandatory requirement on every household in Burma to report any overnight guest. The law still gives draconian power of midnight-searches at will to the ward and village administrators.
The Articles 6 and 7 of new Ward and Village-group Administration law basically decides the militaristic-formation of the nucleus of Burmese society like a squad-platoon-company-battalion-regiment pattern of a typical army corps.

This draconian law grossly violating basic liberty and human rights had been amended recently by the Burma's parliament. It now provides legal punishment of the overzealous administrator of a ward or village-group or anyone else for forcing his constituents or anyone to do free labor or serve as porters. One year jail term or maximum 100,000 kyats fine or both is the punishment. It's a right step towards reforming this law but still not enough, I believe.
