Chakrabhand launched his writing career when ‘Suwannee
Sukhonta’, the pseudonym of his senior at Silpakorn University, was
editor of the magazine ‘Lalana’ in 1973. She commented upon his
potential for writing and he thought it would be fun to give it a try.
His debut articles appeared in Lalana under the pen name ‘Sasivimol’
accompanied by his own illustrations. His writing covers a variety of
topics, including beauty tips, art reviews and interviews. Following his
trip visiting the sites and art of Europe, his articles, entitled
Sasivimol on Tour, which appeared in the magazine from 1974 to 1975,
became very popular. They were compiled into a book that was reprinted
in three editions. It received an award for Best Non-Fiction writing at
the UNESCO book award at the National Book Fair in 1976.
In 1977, Sasivimol’s Diatribes, a compilation of his
early columns, emerged in print, followed by Dear Sasivimol in 1982, a
collection of his answers to his readers’ innumerable questions on a
variety of topics. He stopped writing the column in 1978 before resuming
his writing career at the Ploy Kam Petch magazine.
