Some say that Jan Dara’s life was blighted from birth – from the moment his mother Dara died while giving birth to him. Certainly Dara’s husband Khun Luang (‘Great Master’) hated the boy from that moment. That was why he named him Jan – short for Janrai (“accursed”). And that was why Khun Luang viewed the boy with such hatred and treated him so cruelly, beating him and locking him in a ‘ghost room’ for daring to grieve for his mother.
But Khun Luang’s hatred for the boy had nothing to do with his licentious behaviour around the Visanan compound in which they both lived. Jan Dara’s earliest memory was of seeing Khun Luang have sex with a maid, right in front of a portrait of his late wife. In fact Khun Luang was incapable of ever reining in his sexual desires, and didn’t care who in the household knew about it. When Dara’s old friend Waad arrived from Pijit to be a surrogate mother to the boy, Khun Luang lost no time in adding her to his list of conquests. And when Aunt Waad bore Khun Luang a daughter, Kaew, the doting patriarch taught the child to hate Jan Dara as much as he did himself. In other words, Jan Dara grew up surrounded by immoral and licentious acts and perhaps blurred them in his mind with both the image of his beloved mother and the cruelty of his hated father.
