Thirukkural was written 2000 years ago by a Tamil saint-poet Thiruvalluvar. All the couplets deal with various aspects of human activities like devotion to God, ascetic life, family life, charity, kingship, defense, friendship, love etc. In this musical dance drama "One in a Million", 62 couplets have been chosen to depict the life of a prince from birth to herothood.

President Enkhbayar and former Premier of the Executive Yuan Chang Shan-cheng stride into the main hall.



Three extraordinary men gathered together, exchanging ideas.


President Enkhbayar mentioned a poem "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by the English poet John Donne while giving the solemn speech for the Water-Land Thousand People Mountain Pilgrimage; "The poem emphasizes an idea of striking the bell for the whole universe instead of doing it for oneself. In the same time, the bell tolling sound has a positive meaning of pursuing good fortune and avoiding the mishaps in Mongolian customs." Said President Enkhbayar, "The tolling bell awakes the people who get lost in busy lives. The person who tolls the bell must remain calm and happy for he is bringing benefit to others." Lastly, president Enkhbayar came to a conclusion by saying "if there's no kindness and friendship in one's life, the tolling bell can wake him up and make him remember to benefit others. The tolls of bell have provided a way for the public to practice and become Buddhas."

For Whom the Bell Tolls
John Donne


                                                                       No man is an island,
                                                                       Entire of itself.
                                                                       Each is a piece of the continent,
                                                                       A part of the main.
                                                                       If a clod be washed away by the sea,
                                                                       Europe is the less.
                                                                       As well as if a promontory were.
                                                                       As well as if a manor of thine own
                                                                       Or of thine friend's were.
                                                                       Each man's death diminishes me,
                                                                       For I am involved in mankind.
                                                                       Therefore, send not to know
                                                                       For whom the bell tolls,
                                                                       It tolls for thee.
