Whereas other countries in the region have begun to lose touch with their roots, Myanmar (Burma) continues to practice and celebrate its ancient customs through a range of creative outlets. Heavily influenced by Buddhism, many of the crafts produced in Myanmar play a practical role in everyday life. Buddhism has great influence on daily life of the Myanmar. The people have preserved the traditions of close family ties, respect for the elders, reverence for Buddhism and simple native dress. Myanmars are contented and cheerful even in the face of adversities and known for their simple hospitality and friendliness.

    22. 22. Hintha Burmese Mythological Bird The Burmese mythological bird duck Hintha also known as Hamsa originated from where the Bago river once flowed strongly into the Yangon River and from there out to sea. At one time a huge area was mostly under water with only the tip of a hill rising out of the fast flowing river. The myth describes how a couple of Hintha birds or waterfowl with golden neck feathers, were seen resting on the tip of the hill by two Princes who later founded the kingdom. The dry space on top of the hill was so small that the female bird had to perch on the back of her gallant mate.
