    The plight of the stateless

    Life, Published on 14/08/2018

    » Thanom's ancestors lived in what was Siamese territory, near Bang Saphan district in Prachuap Khiri Khan, over a century ago. Back then Burma, to the west, was a British colony and people who lived along the border crossed back and forth without much difficulty.

As a young man Thanom was a cattle herder, and he travelled around Karen villages to buy cattle and buffaloes and crossed over to sell them on the Thai side. When he started this job, a cow was just 20 baht and a buffalo was 50 baht.

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/04/2019

    Remaining to be seen

    Life, Published on 26/07/2017

    » Boy love. Sweet kisses. Gay flirts. These had hardly been portrayed openly on Thailand's big and small screens until back in 2007, when teen drama Love Of Siam made a bold move with its kissing scene between two male high-schoolers, Tong and Mew. The film addressed family, teen and gender issues while also stirring debate as to its appropriateness.
