Of all the literature that is fundamental to Thai cultural consciousness, the Ramakien (the Glory of Rama), or the Ramayana epic, transcends into local philosophical & social contexts. Each version may vary in detail yet the moral of the story remains the same – virtue wins over evil as Dharma conquers all.

The Ramayana lives not only on the page – it has been interpreted into all kinds of artistic & dramatic media, including mural paintings, shadow puppet shows, Burmese marionette performances, animation, plays, TV series, & dance.

The most celebrated form of dance for the Ramakien is called ‘Khon’ or the mask dance, derived from Kathakali in southern India. Since it requires a large cast and crew comprising dancers, musicians, singers and craftsmen, Khon has often been seen as a courtly art (Lakorn Nai). However, it can be performed in various styles both in & out of the court.

As the poetic verses are sung to narrate the story, it was the habit of many Siamese kings to revise & pen their own version. King Rama II in particular is said to have changed many of the crucial dance scenes. And Khon still has royal connections – every November one can witness the most extravagant production of Khon dance royally sponsored by HM the Queen at Thailand Cultural Centre. The crafts of creating intricate costumes, masks, accessories & stage sets have been revived & exhibited for the public.

As Shakespeare wrote, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men & women merely players”, so the Ramakien was adapted, told, retold, & performed again & again to remind Thais of their social structures, values and roles. It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying model characters such as the ideal father, the ideal king, the ideal wife, the ideal brother, & the ideal servant. In Vaishnavism, the sect within Hinduism that worships Vishnu, & within Dhevaraja doctrine, the Ramakien serves to propagate absolute monarchy as well as point the audience to satisfactory deeds & Dharma.

The five main characters in the Ramakien – Rama, Lakshmana, Sita, Thosakan, & Hanuman – are wellknown in modern Thai society. Rama symbolizes the archetypal hero, the avatar of Vishnu. As a divine ruler, Rama is noble, virtuous, perfect, & revered – hence from the the reign of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) the title of ‘Rama’ was retrospectively ascribed to all previous Thai monarchs & to him & his successors.

Lakshmana, Rama’s younger brother, portrays a loyal supporter. He is, in fact, another avatar of Vishnu. In the old political system, he represented the Wang Naa or the Front Palace where the king’s brother resided. This wasbefore Siam had a Crown Prince.

Sita epitomises a perfect lady, the queen. She is beautiful, devoted, chaste, & peerless. As an archetypal wife she stays at home, cooks, cleans, and takes care of her husband. She has no voice until she finally wants something – a golden stag which becomes her ruination. A satisfactory woman should not want! If the story had been written today, feminists would have had a fieldday criticising the Sita character.

Thosakan, or Ravana, the ten-faced demon, is possibly the most human of all. He embodies all kinds of sins & emotions ranging from shame to greed & love and lust. If one has ten faces, how can one be blamed of having too many feelings? Dramaturges often view villains with more shades of grey. With his illustrious back story, Thosakan’s character is certainly charismatic & he commands the stage with his many masks.

Hanuman, the tremendous white vanara or simian, faithfully serves Rama & Co. As with other animal roles, he was often played by soldiers in the time of peace. As the leader of the simian army, he signifies ardent subjugation to the king. However, he is not only a tremendous fighter but moreover the philandering lover to many of the female characters, both human & demon.

Whether the Ramayana is dramatically recounted in a one-hour dance by an Indian troupe or in the lengthy and measured style of Khon, this allegory tale explores more than just Dharma & human values. It combines both organisational viewpoints & devotional elements and also holds up a mirror to our modern social behaviour.

Thanksgiving is a feast for the soul as much as the palate. Slow-roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, & cranberries might fill the table, yet family & friends make the meal.

Although Bangkok is a world away from the American dinner table, there’s no shortage of superior Thanksgiving menus to enjoy in satisfactory company. So in the spirit of tradition, why not go for a “turkey trot” around Lumpini, put on your finest turtleneck sweater, & gather with your loved ones at one of the following restaurants & hotels this Thursday?

The annual Thanksgiving buffet at Bourbon St. (Bourbon St. Restaurant & Oyster Bar - Sukhumvit Soi 63 (Ekamai), 0 2381 6801-3) never disappoints. Expect all the favourites here, as well as a few twists, from roasted turkey to beef brisket to a quintessential slice of pumpkin pie. First come, first serve, & no reservations. On Thursday, November 27, the buffet runs  from 12 to 10 pm, & on Friday, November 28 , the dinner lasts from 5.30 to 10 pm.
B950++ per adult
B475++ per child under 12

Another annual feast in Bangkok, Roadhouse’s (Roadhouse Barbecue - 942/1 Rama IV Rd, 0 2236 801) Thanksgiving buffet runs the regional gamut, with Maryland-style crab cakes, Southern cornbread, & a San Francisco shrimp cocktail on top of roast ham & all the fixings. The meal comes in at B895++ per person, yet there’s a 20 per cent discount for tables that arrive before 5 pm (serving from noon to 11 pm). Reservations are recommended.

Choose from a buffet lunch or set dinner menu at Up & Above at The Okura Prestige(The Okura Prestige – 57 Wireless Rd, 0 2687 9000). The buffet features all the classics, like roast turkey & stuffing, while the 4-course dinner delivers a modern take on the holiday with a Nicoise-style tuna salad, oven roasted turkey with root vegetables, a ginger-pumpkin mash, and, finally, raspberry ripple cheesecake bars for dessert. Buffet lunch is from 12 to 2.30 pm at B1200++ per person & 4-course set dinner is from 6pm to 10.30 pm at B1200++ per person.

In recent years, the deep-fried turkey has become a bit of a Thanksgiving tradition. The American Bar & Grill (American Bar & Grill - Sukhumvit Soi 8, 08 5486 1155) in Nana proudly brings this mouth-watering (and artery-clogging) delicacy to Bangkok. Enjoy all the trimmings & a slice of pie to boot for B895 plus VAT. Book your seats in advance, & come at 1 or 7 pm to taste fried turkey fresh out of the fryer.

As well as its take on traditional Thanksgiving classics, like caramelized sweet potatoes & Brussels sprouts au gratin, Twenty Seven Bites (Twenty Seven Bites at Radisson Blu Plaza - 489 Sukhumvit Rd, 0 2302 3333) offers free flow local beers, house wines, sparkling wines, & soft drinks at B1290++ per person. Serving from 6 to 10:30 pm

Lighter on the wallet than most Thanksgiving meals in Bangkok, the Queen Vic’s (Queen Victoria Bar & Restaurant - Sukhumvit Soi 23, 0 2661 7417) turkey-day dinner nevertheless includes turkey, ham, dressing, and, of course, pie or ice cream for dessert. Still, the irony of a British pub doing a proper American Thanksgiving dinner does not escape us. Serving from 11 am. at B425 nett per person.

Lady Image2 is the continuation of Anchalee Arayapongpanich’s highly successful original solo painting exhibition “Lady Image” – works which earned her the accolade of being the only artists to win first prize at the National Gallery’s “Panasonic Contemporary Painting Exhibition” two years in a row (2012 & 2013). This latest exhibition presents imaginative paintings of the artist herself in the roles of various fictional characters. In the works Anchalee adopts (among others) the personas of a biker, a hunter in the snow & a shark wrangler to portray the confidence, strength & bravery of females, idealized images that challenge the current notions of the roles taken by women in society.
