Dr Somkiat Ornwimon

Dr Somkiat is a champion for the cause of mass education in Thailand, through bringing educational documentaries to Thai TV and sitting on the board of Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University, a university of the air that has benefitted many thousands. He has represented his home province of Suphanburi in the Senate, Thailand's upper house. He has never been anything less than totally kind to my requests. He used to have a number of Thai cats including some very nice Coppers, but the survivors are old now. His foreword for my book recounted an interesting encounter he had with Indira Gandhi, when he asked her about her Siamese cat*. Here he is interviewing in the Cats 101 programme at his house.
