A photograph of founder of the Karen National Union Saw Ba U Gyi taken around the time he was called to the bar by the Middle Temple (in London) in 1929. Future Secretary-General U Thant's first experience at peace negotiations was not in New York at the UN but near Insein in 1949, when he traveled across the front lines at the request of U Nu to meet with Saw Ba U Gyi as well as his old Pantanaw friend Saw Hunter Tha Hmwe.
