New Year’s Cartoon: Things Are Going Good

From Thairath, January 1, 2017
Title: Happy New Year
[a poem] Start the New Year
Thailand is happy like a new
Sun shining for the progress of Thailand
Mohothornteewi is riding a peacock implying that it will be enough water and full of food
An industrial economy will be progress
The electioneers keep waiting for the election in almost a year
Who does wrong things will be in the jail
Prayom Zongthong, Composer [of the poem]

[The cartoon shows dogs taking on various roles of people such as voting and raising money for hospital by running.
2018 is believed to a better year due to the prediction from the cyclical symbol of the year in Thai traditional lore. “Mohothornteewi” is the Thai new year’s angel that rides a different creature each year. This year will be the year of the peacock. The angel rides the peacock which symbolizes prosperity.]
