Official description

An exhibition on two great personalities, Mahatma Gandhi and His Majesty the King, will concurrently be on show, at Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall, until Jan 4.

Presented by the Ministry of Culture, India and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Thailand, the “Phor-Bapu: Love For The Nation” exhibition highlights the immense contributions made by Gandhi and HM the King to their people.

Both revered figures are recognised as the fathers of their respective nations. In India, Gandhi is affectionately called “bapu” (Hindi for father). HM the King’s birthday is Father’s Day in Thailand, which is on Friday. Gandhi is an international icon who represents truth and non-violence. His birthday, Oct 2, is commemorated all over the world as the “International Day Of Non-Violence”. Gandhi provided steadfast leadership during India’s struggle for independence and helped develop self-sustaining communities. His simple lifestyle set an inspirational example for many.

HM the King has initiated countless national development programmes to remedy the people’s problems. These projects have focused on benefits to the population through sustainable development. HM the King has also concentrated on reducing inequality in remote, rural areas.

The exhibition is presented in an interactive digital format, featuring touchscreens. An “Engagement Wall” will lead visitors through the exhibition. On the wall, valuable messages from the leaders are imparted through quiz and video displays.
