LONG LIVE THE KING
A Tribute to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej
It is a great honour for AseanAffairs to put together this special feature – a sincere tribute to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
We are delighted to have this opportunity to join Thais and all the well-wishers at home and abroad, in wishing His Majesty a happy 82nd birthday, and a long healthy life.
Thais and good friends of Thailand all share a common desire for His Majesty’s full recovery from his recent illness. To our immense relief and joy, our beloved monarch is now convalescing.
Blessed are all Thais to have a King of sincerity, compassion and plain common sense. AseanAffairs is among those keenly observing improvement in His Majesty’s health.
Anxious that we all had been for His Majesty’s health to improve, we were overwhelmed with gratefulness to witness our revered King coming out to meet his subjects as he paid respect to the late HRH Princess Mother and King Rama V in the hospital compound on October 23.
A few days later on November 2, we were again filled with delight and reassurance to see Their Majesties, along with the Royal Household, celebrating the Loy Krathong Festival, where His Majesty smiled and waved to all who came to greet him.
We know how dedicated His Majesty’s has been in serving his people but we were still pleasantly surprised by His Majesty’s unwavering conscience in taking his responsibility. Undergoing medical treatment would not stop His Majesty from doing what he always does – keeping an eye on his Kingdom and helping his people in times of trouble. ....
His Majesty’s wisdom has earned respect and admiration not only far and wide. Earlier this year, His Majesty received the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) Global Leader Award in recognition of his extraordinary commitment to promoting intellectual property and his important contribution to society as a prolific inventor.
