NDO - A wide range of activities have been held across the country in recent days to commemorate the 126th birthday of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19). 

The Lang Sen (Lotus Village) Festival 2016 was opened in Kim Lien commune, Nam Dan district, Nghe An province, the hometown of President Ho Chi Minh on May 17 to express the gratitude and love of the people for President Ho.

This year's event will run until May 19 including a procession of photos of President Ho in different periods, the 36th Lotus Village singing contest, a Lotus Village beauty contest, a volleyball competition, photo exhibitions, cultural and folk activities, among others.

On the same day, the Kim Dong Publishing House launched a book on President Ho Chi Minh entitled 'Teacher Nguyen Tat Thanh at Duc Thanh School' by writer Son Tung.

The book features the time when Uncle Ho (then named Nguyen Tat Thanh) went from Hue to the South and stopped in Phan Thiet province to teach at the Duc Thanh School, a school established by patriots.

Through the book, readers can learn about the thoughts and feelings of Nguyen Tat Thanh as the country was in bondage and his teaching methods aiming to inspire students to patriotism and teach them life skills.

In Quang Binh province, a photo exhibition entitled 'President Ho Chi Minh with the National Assembly and People's Council Elections' was opened at the Quang Binh Museum on May 17, displaying nearly 100 photos on activities of President Ho Chi Minh during elections through many periods.

On May 17, Ho Chi Minh City also held a ceremony to honour examples of individuals and collectives studying and following President Ho Chi Minh's moral example.
