Definitely an interesting name. In Burmese it means 'tweezers'. He's one of Myanmar's most famous comedians and has been arrested continuously since his involvement in the 1988 uprising. Now he's serving a life sentence for speaking out against the regime repeatedly, although his 59 years were reduced marginally just recently.
One of the articles I was asked to produce something for contained a section about him so I thought it would be worth doing a portrait in a prison setting.
