Indian philanthropist Satish Modi’s book “In love with death” will also be launched in the Thai language at this festival. A book launch event is being held in Bangkok on the 5th of December, on the occasion of the late Thai King’s first birth anniversary during the 10-day festival in Bangkok – ‘Living with Meaning and Dying with Nobility’.

The aim of this book is to help people overcome their fear of dying, to make them look at death positively, motivating them to live their lives filled with goodness, love, and compassion.
