Myanmar News : Myanmar formerly known as Burma is situated in Southeast Asia and made up of 135 ethnic races among which the main ones are Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Bamar, Mon, Rakhine and Shan. Since 1962 a military junta rules Myanmar when civilian government of U Nu was overthrown in a military coup led by Ne Win. Even after harsh international sanctions and criticism by World organisations the military continues to have an iron grip over the country. The economy of Myanmar is adversely affected due to sanctions from Western nations and US. It is one of the least developed nations of Southeast Asia and of ASEAN. The Theravada Buddhism predominates the life and culture of Myanmar. It is an incredible land full of natural landscapes dotted with golden pagodas.
