The Manuscripts have greater impact on social and economic development of Myanmar and the languages standard. Regarding these manuscripts young people will not know or see such valuable artifacts that they should cherish and take pride. These manuscripts are the documents and evidences of Myanmar History. We also have these evidences aside from learned monks and men that emerged women writers and poets. This is these evidence Myanmars are literate since the time of first century AD, and also the women have equal rights with the men since that time. We all should cherish and value our cultural heritage.
