What an irony. The jail in Rangoon is called ' InnSein'. It is notoriois. It was built by English coloniser to jail Burmese patriots who faught gallantly without modern weapons to defend their kingdom.
This part of history is deliberately hidden.
So thanks to the English for the experience in Rangoon Hilton.
