SPECULATION about a possible jinx at the Government House intensified yesterday (Feb. 20) after reporters saw 2 crows pecking a pigeon to death within the compound, INN News reported.
All those who saw the 2 crows killing the pigeon next to the lawn in front of the path leading to Thai Khu Fah building where Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s office is located got startled and disturbed.
Many Thais believe that certain kinds of incidents, such as electric short-circuit or people hit by falling objects, are a harbinger of bad things to come.
This gory sight raised questions as to whether or not this is a sign of something going to happen.
However Prime Minister Prayut chided reporters for linking accidents within the Government House, such as a lotus pond and a flower pot breaking, 36 incense sticks found lit there and the hanging up of red Chinese-style lanterns to mark Chinese New Year last week, pointing out that all this is normal occurrence and should not be looked upon superstitiously.
