That night the rain poured and wind howled raindrops crashing like solid objects onto the ground and water A passenger boat from Ban Phaen to Bangkok packed with people pressed on through the current amidst the rising clamor of the rain and storm The boat capsizes in. Many lives by Momrajawong MR Kukrit Pramoj 1911 1995Kukrit Pramoj was a leading political and literary figure in Thailand during the four decades after World War II authoring the Thai constitution of 1974 and serving as prime minister among other activitiesMR Kukrit a direct descendant of King Rama II 1809 1824 that is what the name title Momrajawong MR stands for meaning as much as ‘grandson of the king’ He was as close to achieving status as a renaissance man as any figure in contemporary Asia Socially prominent because of his royal connections he was also the founder and publisher of Thailand's most influential Thai language newspaper Siam Rath and weekly magazine Siam Rath Sapadaan the author of than 30 books a university professor radio commentator economist capitalist owner of the Indra Hotel actor the prime minister in the film The Ugly American and narrator on an American educational television film series on Asian civilizations He was also a professional Thai classical dancer a photographer and a horticulturalistAmong his most well kown novels are ‘Four Reigns’ Si Phaendin – 1954 – giving a panoramic view of Thai court life under the reign of Rama V until Rama VIII as seen through the eyes of Mae PloyAnd this novel ‘Many lives’ Lai Chiwit – 1954 – a beautifully told and very interesting read on many different levelsFirst of all beautifully – or should I say skillfully – written I never thought of finding another Chekhov in Thailand A literarily achievement but always written with a warm humanitarian heart judging mildly and showing us the universality of human follyNext to that it is an illuminating commentary on Thai society and its valuesAnd above all it gave me a new philosophical view on life or perhaps better on death‘That night the rain poured and wind howled raindrops crashing like solid objects onto the ground and water A passenger boat from Ban Phaen to Bangkok packed with people pressed on through the current amidst the rising clamor of the rain and storm The boat capsizes in the torrent and washed up on the shore the next morning are the sodden bodies of the many passengers who lost their livesIn this novel Kukrit Pramoj retraces the life of each passenger who perished from birth revealing a complex web of experiences and emotions Could their past actions have brought them to this karmic end The writer asks Was death a retribution a fulfillment a reward an escape or merely the end to a long lifeIn the different lives the writer shows us that as each life is different each death is also very different For me that was a new way of seeing because so far I always thought that all death is or less the same coming gentle and mild or hard and violent but the same This novel was my first time of seeing that as each life is different each death is also different At this moment I cannot by far see the conseuence of this discovery Will probably take the discovery of yet another Chekhov
