GUWAHATI, Oct 13 - Author-journalist Bertil Lintner, who is recognised as an expert on Myanmar affairs, is attending the next �Guest of the Month� programme of the Guwahati Press Club on October 24. The interactive session is scheduled to start at 2 pm.
As India�s eastern neighbour Myanmar has prepared for the general elections on November 8 next, the city-based mediapersons will have a rare opportunity to listen to the soft-spoken Swedish journalist based in south-east Asia.
The overall implication of the Myanmar polls on the far eastern part of India would also be a matter of keen observation for the participating journalists.
Currently a writer with Asia Pacific Media Services, Lintner earlier worked with the Far Eastern Economic Review. He has authored several books on Myanmar, including Burma in Revolt: Opium and Insurgency Since 1948, Land of Jade: A Journey from India through Northern Burma to China, The Kachin: Lords of Burma�s Northern Frontier, Outrage: Burma�s Struggle for Democracy, etc.
