    I cannot tell you what good deeds did the king did but all his deeds are remembered and monumented. The song you heard in the cinema is not the national anthem but a song to sing and praise the king. If you look like a Thai national, you are expected to show a degree of respect to their beloved king. Do not play a fool or try to be funny with it because all Thais are very serious about their king. It is said to be lawful to kill a person in public showing utmost disrespect to the king.
    The Thai King was one of my inspirations to study plant breeding to help in food production, he has done many good works in agriculture and set up many agricultural research stations all over Thailand. His family (especially the youngest daughter) is also involved in many of the works, and they tour the country regularly to see if they can be of any help! He has also served as a mediator during many of the coup d'etats the country has experienced. Recently, he was able to defuse a potential upheaval in the country...........I am not sure if his son will be as respected.

    His son will probably have to live in the shadow of his father for some time unless he proves his mette and worth... The present king now has so much respect and love from the people of thailand its amazing. And seriously for what he has done, i respect him alot too.

    Try if you drop a coin and use your toes to pick it up... the kings face is on the coin, and the feet in thai culture is the lowest in terms of respect, i got a friend who almost got beaten up for trying to do the above...

    .. Respect play an importance role in Thailand ..

    This had been done in thailand for ages .. in the old days .. before movie .. people do stand up and pay their respect to the king before show or performance ..

    -- Carrying on with your food .. is ok in singapore .. but if you do that in thailand .. is a grealt disrespectfull act ..

    so don't try to act smart .

    thailand isa great country .. cos everyone learn to respect each other ..
    by respecting others is also demand respect in return from others ..

    The king brithday is on 5th dec ..
    This is just his 60th years on the throne
    he is the king long before you are born .. or some of our father is born ...

    and the Thai KING is love by all the thai cos he had really done well and behave like a king or his people ..
    SHOW yor respect to a person who had done so much to his people .. not cos he is a KING but of his effort to make this world a better place


    Added point ---
    Your rumor is WRONG .. .... that all i got to say ...

    the society constructed in Singapore is one that's anti-heroism, so don't expect anyone to be able to attain that level of respect or command that level of respect ...

    i don't know about heroes, but certain faction of the singapore society does portrait certain ppl as the all-mighty, as if without those, singapore will go down over night.

    Thus going by this logic....

    - A hero rises from the ashes to 'save' the people
    - He is being raised on the pedestal as a 'saviour'
    - Few years later, due to some people who are not happy with this 'hero', demonises him
    - The 'hero' becomes a ba*tard
    - Everyone would soon yearn to piss on the grave of the ba*tard instead

    Seriously, if this sort of mentality goes on and on. It will never end.

    i meant anti-heroism, not anti-heroes

    by anti-heroism i meant that the society do not celebrate heroes, and there's suppression of heroic acts. it's more a failure to recognise acts of heroism, not condemning heroes.
