    A royal legacy

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 09/02/2017

    » Forty years ago, a five-year-old me was in a jeep that zigzagged past mountains, slopes and lush valleys to Angkhang Mountain, about 1,400m above sea level, in Chiang Mai's Fang district. At that time, many parts of the mountain were full of opium farms.

    A dream to live sufficiently

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 02/01/2017

    » From Oct 29 last year on, almost everyone who has paid respect to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the Grand Palace has received a photo of the royal urn and a small packet of rice grains as tokens of his memory.

Most recipients keep the rice grains on altars at home in loving memory of King Rama IX. Many farmers keep them for their rice farming while some want to grow rice and follow his sufficiency-economy principles. As a frequent palace visitor, I keep one packet for myself and give the other to my housemaid to plant in her rice field in Si Sa Ket province.
