I wished more Thais would be like Anek Navikamoon

Above link is toward a Thai article in a Thai magazine, Sarakadee, featuring a prominent conservationists known countrywide for his passion of old stories about Thai art & culture, folk history, people of former generations. Anek Navikamoon, is an author of over 148 books (non-fiction), based entirely on his decades of his detective-like investigations, interviews old people, and photographing in order to record on old stories. He has established a small private museum, House of museums. I admire him. This magazine covered him 20 years ago, and now again 20 years later, with an outstanding award given to him.

If Thailand had more people with exertive passion for worthy things like him, our country would be in much better shape.
