Half-Light Around the Founding Father Monument


The Monument of Cambodia’s Founding Father, Phnom Penh

Being around the statue of Cambodia’s Founding Father and the Father of Independence, the late King Norodom Sihanouk, my mind went directly to the lyrics of a Khmer song which is decorated on the exit wall of Silver Pagoda, next to the Royal Palace. It’s known as Pongsavada Khmer Song

All Khmers, please do remember of historical chronicle

Assuring that the Khmer race was glorious

The Khmer land was large and vast

And widely well known, they always glorified

and regarded our nation as the elder one.

Our great and elegant civilization was spread out

as widely as to the far-east

Religion, Art, Fine relief,

Mental education, music and philosophy

can be studied as the main subjects that the Khmers diffused

All Khmers, please listen to our history which revealed

By assuring that the Khmer race was glorious,

Please make up your strong mind, try your best again,

Help to enhance the value of our Khmer nation

With the most splendor once again in accordance with history
