OVERDRIVE: The bad omens of 2005 are building - The Nation, April 1, 2005
[This unusual article seems strange in English, but is
a great example of the prophecy-type articles that often
share front page space with 'serious' articles in Thai-language
...Morality has really been turned upside down. The
people are indifferent to sin (mai mee khuam la ai to
bab). This is another bad omen. The youth do not want
to learn and like to enjoy life beyond their means. Politicians
and businessmen have no respect for the old values. They
want quick money.
...These bad omens might not add up to 16, the amount
cited in the old prophecy in which King Pasendi in Nibata
Jataka talked with Lord Buddha. Still they are bad omens
that all Thais have to watch for if they want to avert
the catastrophe just beyond the horizon. The prophecy
has been written whether you like it or not.
