    Open your eyes

    » Re: "FFP must clarify", (PostBag, June 25). Does Vint Chavala seriously believe, or believe that anyone else believes, that Thailand needs the amazing excess of army generals living high off the nation? For what, exactly? The most conspicuous achievement of that extraordinary number of army generals has for many decades been to protect the existence of generals busily plotting political careers allied to unusual wealth, which many suspect to be the primary reason Thailand has been so afflicted by military coups against its form of democratic government with a constitutional monarchy.

    Thailand's tale told via 'The Nation'

    News, Thitinan Pongsudhirak, Published on 28/06/2019

    » Nearly five decades ago, The Nation newspaper started out as a pro-democracy, anti-military news organisation. It was fiercely independent and invariably hard-hitting vis-à-vis the powers-that-be. An English-language newspaper owned by Thais from the outset, it prided itself for having neither fear nor favour. Its lamentable expiry as a print newspaper today -- an online version will continue -- provides multiple parallels for Thailand's contemporary political history, ongoing polarisation and the changing nature of the business of journalism worldwide.

    Somtow's daring DasJati continues magnificent run

    Life, Stan Gayuski, Published on 20/06/2019

    » Somtow Sucharitkul's DasJati -- Ten Lives Of The Buddha was one of the most daring ideas in the history of music, to take the iconic stories of the Buddha's last 10 lives from the Pali canon and adapt them as an integrated work consisting of 10 music dramas. Two years ago, Chariot Of Heaven, the fifth work in the series to be produced, received rapturous reviews in local and international media, but the Ten Lives disappeared from view after that. It seemed possible that the maverick artistic director of Opera Siam might have bitten off more than he could chew.

    The glue doesn't stick

    News, Postbag, Published on 16/06/2019

    » The excuse that the "skewed scales must have been due to poor glueing during its making" offered by the director of the Chumpholphonphisai School in explanation for the controversial Wai Kru flower arrangements as reported in the Bangkok Post's June 15 edition, is priceless.
