Princess writes new book in honour of MR Kukrit

HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is to launch her book "Thailand's Administration from Ayutthaya to Early Rattanakosin" in honour of MR Kukrit Pramoj, her late private lecturer.

The book is compiled from notes the princess made when she received private lessons from Kukrit more than two decades ago. He was Thailand's 13th premier, a scholar, great writer and the founder of Siam Rath newspaper.

"At that time I was still a student at Chulalongkorn University's faculty of arts," the princess writes in the preface. She goes on to say she had to adjust to a large classroom with more than 100 students after having become used to a small class where it was easier for students to ask questions.

The princess' enrolment to the university marked the first time that a high-ranking royal member received higher education in Thailand's state university. She also sat in the central university entrance exam like other students.

"There was no big problems when I was studying there except that I complained like a child about how difficult philosophy was. Therefore, Her Majesty the Queen invited Kukrit to be my private philosophy lecturer," the princess says.

That makes her even more admirable. She was very pretty when she was young but has aged gracefully just like any other person. Sometimes we see people holding on to a fading youth with surgery, too much make up, strange hairdos. Is quite refreshing to see a Princess that is so confident of herself she does not need external appearances to shine, her intellect and personality are as good or better than layers of make up.

I do notice in other pictures she favors the yellow or golden colors in her dress code. Anyone knows if there is a meaning to that preference?

HRH Princess Maha Chakri has blog
The first royal blog by HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is now available on the British Council website.

The princess's views about the teaching and learning of English in Thailand is a part of the blog called Future Perfect Conference held by British Council earlier this week to develop strategies to address longterm languageeducation needs in Thailand.

HRH Princess Sirindhorn writes: "We have witnessed in this past century that English has become a global language without much understanding of the process. Nor can we say that we really know the extent of its influence and status as the global language. But, we can be sure of one thing: English can be used as a key to better understanding. As English is used and understood globally, we should be able to communicate, learn and understand each other better. Through English, then, we can make this world more knowledgeable and more understanding." :flowers:

Thailand’s new landmark, the Royal Pavilion, is constructed in the exquisite Lanna (northern Thai) style and will house exhibits relating to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s agricultural theories and projects. Designed to be a center of knowledge, the Royal Pavilion is an important element in Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2006.

With a total area of over 6,000 square meters, the Royal Pavilion has two floors and is part wood, part concrete. It is being built by three artisan families renowned in the region for their traditional craftsmanship. The Lanna architectural style can be traced back hundreds of years. The decoration also includes various other sculptures.

An exhibition called “An Agricultural King — A Brilliance that Benefits the People” will be housed on the first floor. The second floor of the Royal Pavilion will contain murals depicting activities of His Majesty the King. The murals are being painted by a Thai National Artist, Preecha Taothong, who also designed The Royal Virtue Tree.

The Royal Virtue Tree, which by the time the exposition ends, will have 21,915 leaves — the number of days His Majesty the King has been on the throne. Each leaf is embossed with one of the Ten Royal Virtues — guidelines based on the teachings of the Lord Buddha that have been observed by Thai kings for generations. These virtues are meant to bring about good and just government, and include integrity, sacrifice, compassion and kindness.

There are three tiers of leaves, each with a different color. The leaves on the bottom tier are a coppery red, and relate to the time when His Majesty had recently acceded to the throne and began taking an interest in agricultural matters. The leaves in the middle are golden, symbolizing the time when his projects started to yield successful results and improve peoples’ lives. The leaves on the upper tier are the color of platinum, and symbolize the present day sixty years since His Majesty’s accession.

Classical costumes reborn on computer screen
Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has suggested using computer graphics to help remake the costumes of Thai classical khon performances to bring the elegant designs back to life.

The plan was initiated by Her Majesty the Queen who became concerned about the designs used in traditional costumes while watching khon at Phuphan Palace in Sakon Nakhon four years ago.

The motifs used in the cloth design were very different from those seen in the past and they needed to be redesigned to make them more impressive, Culture Minister Khunying Khaisri Sri-aroon quoted the Queen as saying.

"The current patterns of the costumes lack detail and delicacy," Khunying Khaisri said, referring to the clothes worn by both the male lead (phra) and female lead (nang) in the show.
The Queen has contributed 300,000 baht of her own money to help the Fine Arts Department conduct a study of the new designs.:smile:

Princess calls on drug firms to work for benefit of all
HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn urged the global pharmaceutical industry yesterday to contribute more to fight against "neglected diseases" in the developing world.

In the opening speech at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference to 300 participants from various countries, the princess said that producing innovative drugs in the research and development sector was a tough task - but making any achievements that serves all of mankind was even more vital.

"It is well-known that research and development in medical sciences is not easy to achieve as they are time-consuming tasks and require great perseverance. More difficult and complicated still, would be how the results of such achievements are meant for the benefit of all mankind and all countries of the world," the princess said.

Improving access to essential health technologies for neglected diseases was the principle topic for Prince Mahidol Award conference this year.

HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, who is president of the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation, said the issue was selected in order to bring global attention to this important problem and to suggest actions that would improve the health of the most vulnerable populations.

Her point of concern was echoed by the director general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Dr Margaret Chan, who was a keynote speaker at the event.

"The human suffering [from diseases] is far greater than the 270 cases of avian influenza reported globally over the past three years," Dr Chan said.

Chinese New Year celebrations in Yaowarat quieter than usual this year

The normally bustling Chinese New Year celebrations at Yaowarat in Bangkok yesterday were noticeably tamer than in recent years, when the event would normally receive high-profile appearances from a number of Chinese-Thai politicians in the ousted government. Food vendors and shop owners in Yaowarat said sales were down sharply, with fewer people attending the festival.

Yaowarat's Lunar New Year celebration is normally full of politicians and government leaders, making it one of the most high-profile events of the year.

However, Tourism and Sports Minister Suvit Yodmani was the only cabinet minister to attend yesterday's celebrations.

Mr Suvit represented the government in receiving a pair of auspicious lions from the Chinese government to honour His Majesty the King's 80th birthday. Made from precious white jade, the 10-tonne lions have been placed at Chalerm Phrakiat Gate, the famous landmark of Bangkok's Chinatown.

The festivities began as early as 3am yesterday, when people queued up to touch sacred parts of the Chalerm Phrakiat Gate for good luck.

The number of visitors peaked at around 5pm when HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn arrived to preside over the official opening of the celebrations.

The princess, wearing a red Chinese-style outfit, greeted the crowd, all of whom were decked out in red, and made a short tour of an exhibition on the King's 80th birthday organised by members of the Thai-Chinese community. The festivities are set to wind up today.

People living with disabilities in Southeast Asia will soon have more affordable devices to make life much easier as a result of a tie-up between researchers from Singapore and Thailand.

Currently, expensive products from the West dominate the market. Singapore's START Centre is working with Thailand's National Electronics and Computer Techonology Centre to push cheaper switches for the disabled into Asia.

Giving weight to the project is Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand and Minister for Community Development Youth and Sports, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, who launched the event. :flowers:

Both stressed the need to lower the cost of technology for disabled people. :flowers:

Dr Balakrishnan said: "If Thailand and Singapore can arrive at some common standards and increase the size of the market, I think this would help to lower the costs of technology to the people who need it most.":flowers:

Princess’Diary - The Thai princess captures an Indian panorama on her camera
She is used to the grand halls of the Chitralada Palace in Bangkok but Thai princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn took some time off to wander in the streets of India. Amid the ordinariness and the exoticism of this other country, the princess was suddenly another tourist, taken by its diversity, peering through the lens of her digital camera. “Pictures help to nurture experiences as memory begins to betray me,” said the 55-year-old at the opening of her photography exhibition, “Bharata in Reflection”, in the Capital.
The photographs show a panorama of India — from the dilapidated buildings of downtown Ahmedabad to the Sun temple in Konark, from the deodars of Shimla to rows of clumsily made beds in a Darjeeling boarding school. She has had an endless fascination with the land, having learnt Sanskrit and the Indian philosophy and the journey, she says, will go on. “I don't want to limit myself to the culture and the natural beauty of the country. I also want to capture the technological changes in my camera," says the princess whose fascination for science has earned her the moniker, the Princess of Technology.

HRH dedicated Royal Sala Thai at EWC

Royal gesture of Thialand

An estimated 800 people — many from Hawai'i's small Thai population — attended the dedication of the Royal Sala Thai, an open-air teak pavilion, at the East-West Center yesterday.
The ornate, golden sala stood serene in the shade of nine banyan trees on a rise next to the spot where the dedication ceremonies took place.
The focus of attention was Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand, who formally dedicated the new pavilion and spoke of it to the crowd as a place of shelter and relaxation, were people can contemplate, study and share ideas.
The new pavilion — one of four traditional salas outside of Thailand bearing the royal seal — is a reconstructed version of a pavilion given to the East-West Center in 1967 by the princess' father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand.
"It was his majesty the king's wish to build the sala here at the East-West Center as a symbol of universal hospitality and brotherhood of mankind," said the princess, who wore black because of the recent death of her aunt, the sister of the king.
"The original sala, since 1967, has been worn out with time."
So the deteriorated original pavilion was dismantled, and in 2006 the building of a new one was overseen by Thai national artist and architect Pinyo Suwankiri.
