A little more detail from Kyi May Kaung, who invited the speaker as part of Dr. Kaung's Salon:

Bijan is also a veteran travel and sports writer.

* Why do we gape at others who are different? Mr. Bayne will talk about the original Siamese Twins, The "Venus Hottentot," The Spotted Boy and their life stories.Come for an interesting discussion.
