NDO – “… Admiring various types of flowers in Uncle Ho’s garden, we still feel his cherished presence around, species of flowers from regions far away, gathering here to bloom and omit their sweet fragrances, reminding us of the President’s sacrifices…”

Those warm and smooth melodies together with noble and poetic lyrics of the song “Flowers in Uncle Ho’s garden” composed by musician Van Dung, have long received fine sentiments and affection from music lovers across Vietnam. Listening to the song on the 127th birthday of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19, 1890-2017), those beautiful melodies seem to remind each of us to live well, fairly and simply and for the people as Uncle Ho’s ideology and morality. Each person and each region should be a “beautiful flower” in the country’s “flower garden”.
