Thailand: New Thai king and queen take part in 'Royal Ploughing'

Thailand's newly crowned King Maha Vajiralongkorn and his queen Suthida presided over the royal Ploughing Ceremony at Bangkok's Sanam Luang on Thursday morning. Marking the beginning of Thailand's rice-planting season, the ceremony saw the sacred oxen presented with grass, rice grain, corn, green beans, sesame, liquor and water. The permanent secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture, Anan... Еще Suwannarat took the role of the Ploughing Lord whereby he sprinkled the ploughed lands with seeds. At the end of the ceremony, crowds rushed to gather seeds sowed by Anan Suwannarat either to keep as a good omen or mix with their own seeds for a better crop.
