History is a complex web woven from multiple stories, and among these tales are the ones that talk of beginnings, such as the start of Chinese immigrants in Thailand. Written by Khunying Chamnongsri (Rutnin) Hanchanlash, the book Duj Nava Klang Mahasamutr is the first masterpiece focused around the origins of Chinese immigrants in Thailand—a story expressed through the recounts of a Thonburi bank family. HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn generously blessed the final edition with a foreword and added verse detailing the cruise of Chinese immigrants from the mainland to the Chao Phraya river pier.
On March 27, LHONG 1919 celebrated the 9th publication of the masterpiece with an exclusive event where the words of the book were expressed through magnificent live performances. Seen at the event were elite guests along with friends and family of the author, including Yupa Lamsam, Rujiraporn and Suchin Wanglee.
