The rising and shinning face of Burma’s (present day Myanmar) claim for democracy and human rights, Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the most prominent political leaders of the country and one of the world's most prominent political prisoners as well.

An unexpected turn of events changed the course of life of young Suu Kyi and brought her to the limelight and centerstage for Burma’s call for freedom and democracy. An ardent advocator for human rights and freedom, Suu Kyi is the founding member and chairperson of the National League for Democracy, Burmese political party. Ever since her plunge into the Burma’s political scene, Suu Kyi has been against military rule and dictatorship and is working relentlessly in making the country feature among the democratic nations of the world. For the same, she has suffered more than 15 years of detention, most of it which was under house arrest. Suu Kyi has beel offered support by various countries across the globe including United States, United Kingdom, Europe and so on. She has been felicitated with prestigious awards such as the Nobel Peace Prize and Congressional Gold Medal for her continuous effort to throw out dictatorship and install democracy in Myanmar by peaceful means.
