This is the evidence from monarchy which is a fading away type of the world's governances. Thailand is perhaps one of the last few countries in the world that people still have genuine reverence and so much love for their monarch. The king is the soul of the nation. As a Thai 'black day' is my poetic evidence of the grief and sadness expressed by Thais toward the death of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 2016.
