Aung San Suu Kyi: Lady of no Fear
The lady on the lake
In a crumbling, rambling old home by a lake sits a diminutive woman thoughtfully responding to the volley of questions from a relative stranger. Aung San Suu Kyi may be small, polite and gentle but don't be misled. Even now in her mid 60s she's an immoveable, seemingly unshakeable force and a powerhouse of ideas and aspirations for the people of Burma. The outsider is Foreign Correspondent's Zoe Daniel who had spent months negotiating an interview with Burma's most famous figure and then planning how to pull it off. Since Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest she's been under constant covert and overt surveillance by the authorities, so sealing a time and place for this exchange is one thing - getting there and getting it done is another.
