Come again with a Red-Shirt-like issue in Thailand, an 11th grader burned the library of Mahidol Wittayanusorn (โรงเรียนมหิดลวิทยานุสรณ์) Library school, the first and the only science school in our country. As my heart and my soul were from there, I do care what others look at us, its kids. Many Americans has wrong attitude through the Red Shirt and the Thai Monarchy, because of some reports. They blames Thai people who know the truth as the stupid. This situation is the same as MWIT library. The radio said that the grade 11 kid could not bare the school system with crazy-hard-science lessons and the dormitory life. Some outsiders also says the same things. They listen to only one kid’s voice, but they have never heard of all other kids.

Both Sw Eden and a good friend who also writes on this site have the high school degree from Mahidol Wittayanusorn, and we did have a lot of fun in the school. I was one of the most well-known students of the year, and my good friend was one of the high-grade students of the year. All students who make the decision to be in this school must know their future responsibilities. Our original director or headmaster, Thongchai Chewprecha (ธงชัย ชิวปรีชา) fought to have this school to increase the scientist to develop the country of Thailand. One of the older-year did cry when she heard his great ideology. She wanted to get out, because she could not trust herself that she would do this big thing. She did care about the hope and the money which all Thai people gave to her. Finally, she could succeed her degree, and this is the ideal student’s thought of our school. All the students who come for this school will not only want to take the scholarship, but they need to be ready to study and to serve the country. If they cannot have this lives, they must not just register for the school entrance examinations.

The radio said that this grade 11 student needed to have one more weeks for his vacation with the family. In fact, he could have a week without any destruction. Some friends in my year could come the school one week late, and no one blamed them. This grade 11 student also mentioned that he studied too hard and was stressful. That might be true, but other students would have many better solutions.

MWIT school system is the college-like school with the freedom of students, and the friendly professors. No professors hit or abuse the students. All students can have unlimited projects for all kinds of creativity, art and science, which school pays for all tools, time, places and instructors. The school also have the organization visits every month, till sometimes every week. The students were required to go to just some of them, but these are really good opportunities, so I went to all of them. Not only the outside visits we travel to, the school also invites many excellent scientists and all kinds of inventors for its students. The same thing, I did have the lecture from most of them. I was not a high-grade student, although I had had very high grade from my previous school. I am sure that the grade of the student who burnt the library is lower than mine, and I am sure that how homesick I was is greater than how homesick he is. MWIT has made the students stronger, and we are strong enough to be in everywhere of the world.

The government which means the country pays one million bahts to look for each right student for this school. They pays for all tuitions, all tutorials, all foods, all dormitory supplies and all diary service. Thai Princess, Sirinthorn said that this is the school of Her Grandfather. Mahidol is the name of the father of Medical Profession and Science of Thailand. I do not have to explain how important this school is. Although some outsiders do not understand the fact of the school and the student lives, they would know that many people are crying for this terrible accident. Sorry for all the alumni, for our beloved director, for our time, for our hope, for our fame and for our country. Sw just let you know, that a famous person of one place does not have to represent that place.

Library is not only the building that the many governments put the money into it, it is also unlimited actual books and online books. I did donated many books for it, and I know that I was not the only one. I am thinking of many friends who always spend their time in here. They were not that crazy bookworms. They read around the traveling books and novels. Right now, it is the memorial or our pride, and we are waiting for the upcoming things, our new library. Sw would like to repeat the favorite quote from a Greenday song, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

Oh Yeah! one of our MWIT friend. She is now graduated at Mahidol University.

Bangkok Teenager

Bangkok Teenager

A friend said that she was unhappy about environment around her in Bangkok. She was from Na-Korn-Na-Yok, a province in the east of Thailand. She was rich, I guessed. She had computer and anything she wanted to have. I was rich, she guessed. I studied in New York. We were richer than many people in our university in Thailand. I did not buy new things for every week. We did not show off. She was as where she was from. I was someone who went into it. I was born in Bangkok. Teenager from other provinces who studied in Bangkok, tried to be Bangkok Teenager. They would walk on fabulous way. Not her. I did not listen too much Thailand’s pop music. It was just the same. I was Thai. I was more Thai than Bangkok Teenagers.

I visited temples every weekend. I bought Thai merchandises, except music stuff. My mother’s friend said that people went to temples, because they were sad. Not me. Temples and folks’ communities made me happy. I thought, if I could be the great one, many things would be better. I went to the beach at the west of Thailand with my family. Drive on the high way with salt farms on both side of street. This was the only place that people kept the original occupation, although the high way passed it. The Thai King always passed this high ways to His palace in Hua-Hin. People cared about Him. People knew that He loved to see the folks’ life, rather than the great big buildings. Sufficient Economy. I love Him and all His words. If people cared me as they cared Him, and everywhere I went to, people would keep their original folks’ life. It was beautiful. The happiness did not have to be from the big mall or shopping area. The pure happiness was from the pure smile with pure heart.

I did not want a new car or cellphone or watch or anything. I did not want to have an expensive meal. My happy meal was the meal with my family. Meal on the side of street or at home. Bangkok Teenager forgot their lifes. Many Thai folks forgot their lifes, too. A pressident of Mahidol Wittayanusorn school (Thongchai Chewprecha talked with parents of students. They were educated people. They agreed that they would do the sufficient economy, and they would support Thai farmers, who were poor. A parent asked Mr. Thongchai Chewprecha that if the farmers spent the money for new cars or new cellphones or new televisions. No answer.


Mahidol Wittayanusorn Student 2006

A big group of farmers went to Bangkok to meet Apisit Vejjajiva, the prime minister of Thailand. They needed him to remove their debt. They had debt and they sold their farm to buy new cars and new cellphones and new televisions. It was a shame for me and for those parents and for Mr. Chilprecha and for our King. We were a few number of our country, who truely love Thailand. The big number was farmers and our new-age teenagers. They forgot their lifes. Thailand was agriculture country. Thailand was the kitchen of the world. And the farm was the kitchen of Bangkok. Business and the western civilazation are destroying us. They destroy their own kitchen. In nearly future, they will not have any food anymore.

The competition which those and the Bangkok Teenagers made for themselves, all about their dressing and their extravagance. The nonsense competition will kill themselves. It is today. How much we can do for Thailand, and how much we can do for our King. Can I be the great one, who all Thai teenagers will read my words. Those who disagree, cannot hate adults or the King, but they can hate me.

Apisit Vejjajiva liked Oasis and other rock bands. He was a student in England. Foreigners thought that he could not tuned with Thai common folk so well. Sw Eden liked Zi:Kill and other American bands. I am a student in New York. And I am much more Thai than Bangkok Teenager who listen to Thai music. Apisit Vejjajiva is excellent, and his methods is excellent, too.

To a farm, we marry and we have a son
Thank you for all re-born of new lifes
All rice and all people
Me and my bull
You and our spring
Green becomes gold
No TV and no radio
Listen and watch throw the window
THe feild and its sound
No you, then no us
Now, we have to go
Not because of you
Not because of us
Someone else
Who will never understand
We are the men and nature
We serve you by this kitchen
Break kids’ kitchen
Break us apart
Kids are growing up
Kids are just idiot men
No food for them at all
