Thai Nation Celebrates Beloved Princess’ Birthday

The Kingdom of Thailand this year celebrates the most auspicious occasion of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s 60th birthday anniversary.

Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn was born on 2 April 1955. She is the third child and second daughter of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, King Rama IX, and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand.

Princess Sirindhorn is ambitious to ensure that every Thai children and youths have adequate nutrition and educational opportunities, which will lead to sweeping national developments. In 1980, she launched the pilot project “Agriculture for School Lunch” at Border Patrol Police schools in Kanchanaburi, Ratchaburi, and Prachuap Khiri Khan provinces. Students at the schools began growing their own produce and preparing their own meals. The concept was such a success that it was extended to more than 700 schools in remote areas around the country and now encompasses culture, local wisdom and care for the environment.

The Thai people deeply love Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. They have acknowledged her longstanding efforts to help people in distress and her unselfish service to humanity, regardless of socio-economic status, creed, race or nationality. Her dedication has not only been known among Thais, but also people from other countries.

On this auspicious occasion, the NIST community joins the Thai nation to express the most humble wishes for the beloved Princess, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, for a long, healthy and happy life. The Thai Government has invited individuals, associations, foundations, and organizations to display on their offices and houses a purple flag with the ceremonial emblem on the celebrations from 1 January to 31 December 2015. Also, the public and all members of the NIST community are invited to wear purple shirts, with the ceremonial emblem on 2 April as an expression of love and respect for Her Royal Highness. Purple is the color of Saturday, the birthday of the Princess.
