Burma is a place quite unlike any you know about, Rudyard Kipling once wrote. He was right, for the country remains veiled to many outside its borders, though it’s slowly becoming a land of opportunity for the few enterprising who find its untapped potential irresistible.

Even before Burma (now officially named Myanmar) was annexed by the British to form part of the then British India, the country was a prosperous kingdom and a necessary trade stopover between India and China. As a result, its economy flourished and its culture infused with both Indian and Chinese influences.

Burma was also the first South-East Asian country to receive Buddhism, which has since become the state’s sanctioned religion.

Fast forward to early 21st century and Myanmar is again making headlines.

After a much-publicised release of defBritmocracy leader and Nobel laureate Aung Sang Suu Kyi in 2010 and a visit by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in late 2011 (the first visit of a top US diplomat in more than half a century), Myanmar’s relationship with the West is thawing, if not warming up.
