This is the evidence from monarchy which is a fading away type of the world's governaces. Thailand is perhaps one of the few countries in the world that people have genuine reverence and so much love for their monarch. The king is the soul of the nation. As a storyteller 'black day' is my visual poetry of the sadness expressed by Thai people toward the death of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 2016. Yet, as a Thai my grief is the true evidence of the majority of Thai people who grew up in this country and have so much love for the king.
