Crowds gathered wearing a white shirt with small king badge with crossing black ribbons. Traffic was blocked and it soon got dark. He was cremated at 6. Could not get very near. Unlike 4 days ago when there was a more subdued Buddist feel with low music and many widows with shaven heads, tonight was more like a pop concert with loud youth shouting into mobile phones and chasing skirt through the crowd. But who are they to know?. The King father mainly appeals to the older generation. The young are corrupted by this city and the so called freedom it offers. Maybe that is not fair as there were many younger respectful ones too. Maybe they should have banned mobile phones there. .
