DescriptionTranslation (Seng Pan) This is what I want to say. You can see a mountain from here. A long time ago, there lived an elderly person called Nhkai Duwa. The town what we call now Waimaw, was on the other side of the river, Mali River. There also lived an elderly man called Nchyun Duwa. At that time, Mali river was not as wide as now. But it was so deep. So, the bamboos which grew on each side of the river dropped and met in the middle of the river. It happened since the river was not so wide. The people also didn't know the upper part and lower part of river. However, they counted the part where the leaf they dropped floated down as the lower part and another part as the upper part of river. For instance, if you pass Ayeyar, in Shatapru, there is a river and also has a bridge. That river is called Njang river. Mali river was like Njang river. It was so deep but not so wide. The men from each side of the river, Nchyun Duwa and Nhkai Duwa, always visited each other. They crossed the river with bamboo raft. One early morning, Nchyun Duwa arrived at Nhkai Duwa's house. He came to visit him. Nhkai Duwa said, "Nchyun Duwa, you came to me very early!" Nchyun Duwa replied, "Last night, I slept in Makye's field. So, I could come here early." (Makye is the name of another elderly man.) He did a farming for living in a place what we call now Njang Dung quarter. At that time, what they called Makyena changed into Myitkyina. Our father, mother and ancestors didn't call Myitkyina. They used to say Makyena which means the field of Makye. At the time British ruled our place, Burmese changed the name into Myitkyina. It seems they changed the name because it was difficult to spell Makyena in English and Burmese languages. Before it was called Makyena. It means the field of Makye.
