သခင္ေအာင္ဆန္းသည္ မိခင္ကို အလြန္ခ်စ္ပါသည္။ ကၽြန္ေတာ္တို႔အစ္ကိုေတြ ခ်စ္သည္ထက္ ပို၍ ခ်စ္ပါသည္။ မိခင္ကလည္း အျခားသားမ်ားအေပၚထက္ အငယ္ဆံုးသားကေလးအေပၚတြင္ သံေယာဇဥ္ပိုပါသည္။ သို႔ပါလ်က္ သခင္ေအာင္ဆန္းသည္ မိခင္အေပၚ စိမ္းကားသလို ျဖစ္ေနသည္မွာ အျခားေၾကာင့္မဟုတ္၊ တိုင္းျပည္အတြက္ အသက္ႏွင့္ ခႏၶာကိုယ္ကို လွဴထားေသာေၾကာင့္ျဖစ္သည္ ဟု ယူဆရန္ရွိသည္မွအပ အျခားအေၾကာင္းမ်ား မရွိႏိုင္ပါ။ သခင္ေအာင္ဆန္းအဖို႔ စားလည္း ႏိုင္ငံေရး၊ အိပ္လည္း ႏိုင္ငံေရး ျဖစ္ေနပါသည္။ ႏိုင္ငံေရးသာလွ်င္ အမိ… ႏိုင္ငံေရးသာလွ်င္အဖ…ႏိုင္ငံေရးသာလွ်င္ ေဆြမ်ိဳးသားခ်င္း ျဖစ္ေနပါသည္။

ထို႔ေၾကာင့္ပင္ စာေရးဆရာ ဒဂုန္တာရာက ၁၉၄၆ ခုႏွစ္တြင္ ထုတ္ေ၀ေသာ “တာရာမဂၢဇင္း”၌ “ေအာင္ဆန္း-သို႔မဟုတ္-အရိုင္း” ဟူေသာ ေခါင္းစဥ္ျဖင့္ ေအာက္ပါအတိုင္း ေရးသားခဲ့ပါသည္။
“သူ႕တြင္ ႏိုင္ငံေရး ၀ိဥာဥ္ကား ျပင္းထန္လွ၏။ ႏိုင္ငံေရး တခုတည္းသာလုပ္ေသာ လူတဦးျဖစ္၏။ သူသည္…ရိုင္း၏၊ ၾကမ္း၏၊ ေၾကာင္၏၊ ကိစၥမရွိ၊ သူသည္ ဧည့္ခန္းေဆာင္မွ ဂုဏ္သေရရွိ လူႀကီးလူေကာင္းမဟုတ္၊ “တခုတည္းေသာ ယံုၾကည္ခ်က္ႏွင့္ တခုတည္းကိုသာလုပ္ေသာ ႏိုင္ငံေရး သတၱ၀ါျဖစ္၏” ထို႔ေၾကာင့္ ကိစၥမရွိ။”

သခင္ေအာင္ဆန္း၏ ရိုင္းပံု၊ ၾကမ္းပံု တို႔ကို သခင္တင္ေမာင္(က်ံဳမေငး)ကလည္း ၄-၁-၆၃ ေန႔ထုတ္ ေၾကးမံုသတင္းစာတြင္ ေအာက္ပါအတိုင္း ေရးခဲ့ပါသည္။
“၁၉၄၀ ခုႏွစ္၊ ဇန္န၀ါရီလတြင္ တို႔ဗမာ အစည္းအရံုးႀကီး၏ အမႈေဆာင္ အစည္းအေ၀းကို မႏၱေလးၿမိဳ႕၌ က်င္းပေလသည္။ အမႈေဆာင္အားလံုး မႏၱေလးရံုးေတာ္ႀကီးရွိ ဦးဘဦးတိုက္ႀကီးတြင္ တည္းခိုၾကသည္။ အစည္းအေ၀းကိုလည္း ထိုတိုက္မွာပင္ က်င္းပေလသည္။

ကရစ္ပ္မွာ ဘာမွ်မေျပာႏိုင္။ အားရပါးရ ဟားတိုက္၍သာ ရယ္ေမာေနရရွာေတာ့၏။

သခင္ေအာင္ဆန္းက ဆက္ၿပီး “ကဲ အခုလို လုပ္ယူရေတာ့ ေကာင္းေသးရဲ႕လား။ ကၽြန္ေတာ့္မွာေတာ့ ကၽြန္ေတာ္ေဖာင္တိန္ ျပန္ရပါရဲ႕။ ခင္ဗ်ားမွာေတာ့ အကၤ်ီအိပ္အၿပဲခံရတာသာ အဖတ္တင္တာေပါ့။ ေစာေစာက ျပန္ေပးလိုက္ရင္ အကၤ်ီလည္းမၿပဲဘူး။ ကၽြန္ေတာ္လက္ေတာင္ ေတာ္ေတာ္နာသြားတယ္။ ခု-ကၽြန္ေတာ္ေျပာေနတာေတြဟာ အပိုေျပာေနတာလဲမပါဘူး။ ခ်ိမ္းေျခာက္ေနတာလဲ မဟုတ္ဖူး။ တကယ္ျဖစ္လာႏိုင္တဲ့သေဘာကို ေျပျပေနတာဘဲ။´

ကရစ္ပ္မွာ ဘာမွ မေျပာႏိုင္၊ အူတက္မတတ္ ျဖစ္ေနရွာသည္။ ေနာက္အတန္ၾကာမွ “အို ခ်စ္စရာေကာင္းတဲ့ ေအာင္ဆန္း ခ်စ္စရာေကာင္းတဲ့ ေအာင္ဆန္း” ဟူ၍သာ ထပ္ကာထပ္ကာ ေရရြတ္၍ ေနရွာပါေတာ့သည္။ ။
