Commencement Day at Chulalongkorn University
It 's jovial day for new graduates. I have been to this alma mater of mine off and on few times a year for various purposes, usually to attend a meeting or to give lecture, but not on this atmosphere for decades. A relative of mine was handed a Ph.D. from our beloved Princess today. Perhaps our family is quite eccentric: unlike thousands of families, we gave no flower or doll to the graduate at all. Those gifts were considered nonsense, or perhaps we valued too much on money. After taking some pictures, I went back to work.
