Why the Thai people cry for His Majesty

 Why the Thai people cry for His Majesty

THITINAN PONGSUDHIRAK

 

While the vast majority of Thais at home and abroad are in a mourning mood, yearning for a bygone past with an emerging angst for what is to come after King Bhumibol Adulyadej's spectacular seven-decade reign, this grief is not universally shared. Not all Thais feel this way. A small minority are relatively indifferent in their reaction to the end of the reign.
