Mr. VANN Molyvann, well I should call him grand father because he aged equal my grand pa.
He was Khmer modern architect since king Sihanouk regime. He designed independent monument, stadium, universities, monarch’s palace in Siem Reap and other big national buildings.
He was named by people especially student of architect that ‘Father of Architecture’.
This morning, he passed away in a hospital in Siem Reap in age 91 years old. There was heavy rain since the news spread to the country. The rain started from about 10 AM till afternoon around 3 PM.
People in developed country might think it was nature but most of Cambodian people believed that the rain fell suddenly because it escorted good person to heaven.
I believe in that. A person does good thing, when she/he dies, the sky will be dim or there will be rain. If they do small good thing, the rain is little. If they do big good thing, the rain will be heavy. The more good the more rain.
Grand father VANN Molyvann had done a lot of good things for Cambodia and Cambodian that’s why the rain was heavily.
I don’t believe in people speech when they tell me that guy is bad or good. I trust only the nature especially rain when that person leaves this world. Anyone bad or good will be shown by the universe. If someone does bad thing, on the day they die, the sky will be hot. It is what I believe.
