Myanmar literature and art festival for the 75th birthday of Moe Moe (Inya) continued for the second day at the Central Printing Factory of Printing and Publishing Department, Ministry of Information yesterday.
In the second day, Film Director Kyi Soe Tun shared experiences about filming the novel by the late author while poets recited poems dedicated to her.
Besides, friends of late author Moe Moe (Inya) recounted their university days with the author and shared experiences with her.
“Moe Moe and I are best friends. Her Birthday is October 24, United Nations Day. She passed away on 13 March, Phone Maw Day. Yangon was under the military rule at that time. But all the writers, poets, artists and cartoonists gathered when they heard the news about her death. She such a precious author in art-field. I canceled my Europe trip to celebrate her 75th birthday. We have a lot of memories.” said author Daw San San Tin.
“She wrote what she has seen, felt and about her view of the inner mind of people. She said she put herself in the circle because writers and critics told she is a novelist. She is emotional as a writer and a poet. She may like to write about her personal feelings but she was hesitated to publish them to audience through the magazines. This is her philosophy. This deserves respect and we should learn. She always said that we must take responsibility for what we write. This is what I have learned from her,” she added.
“Moe Moe and I are friends since we were in university. We have met for literature occasionally even after we have married respectively. She is tidy. She is picky to make friend, and feminine. She’s good at many things like cooking and house keeping. We had opened doors for each others. For me, I couldn’t that she has gone. I have speak with San San Tin that we have to go and celebrate her 75th birthday today. We won’t be here even if her family or children held her 100th birthday. San San Tin from USA and I from England, we took our leaves from our jobs to attend this event. I feel both happy and sad to come here. I am so glad for happening this festival, and congratulations. I wish she could be here. She would be very happy if she was here.” said the author Daw Nita Yin Yin May (May Aung Soe).
Ma Thaw Thaw Moe Oo, an audience from South Okkalapa said, “When we read the books of Moe Moe (Inya), for romance, she writes not only about love also about the peoples and concepts in reality. I found she writes about the phenomena that occur in our lives.” “Some don’t want to read the books like these. They only want to read the books that motivate them. I have seen many young people who think they can be gain only by reading this kind of books. But I think we can also be motivated by reading the books of novel. And I think youths who don’t read books might be interested in buying and reading books because this event is held even though the author Moe Moe (Inya) passed away, “ she continued.
In the festival, there are memorial images of authors from each generation, exhibition of lead font era, table discussion of author and reader, art gallery, practical drawing, cartoons, drawing caricatures, entertainment of writers, shops from small and medium manufacturing and book stores. The festival will also be held at October 27.— Mi Mi Phyo (Translated by Ba Htoo Kyaw)
