‘The People’

Almost majority of The People I saw today wore batik. It is an alleged of their victory over claiming the originality of batik divulged by the Unesco. How enthusiastic everyone was to be wrapped around their so-proud-of so-called batik. Gelabah seyh!

Alas, what I saw today was among the well fortunate people living in a quite decent area of the country that have worn their 'array-of-victory'. On the other hand, I believe of what I didn't see on the other side of the country is however another bunch of community of a little (or VERY) unfortunate not to have the money to get any, while another hordes of tribes and people in privation that are not even covered in proper clothing. How embarrassing to have half of the citizen to be celebrating their own pompous clothing while the other half are indeed in destitution of poverty and disastrous.

I am sick. Albeit of the awfully emotional racism that's happening around, I am more than sick-to-death to see people of the same race not to even morn for one's grief or even have the heart of concern over other's devastation. There was an earthquake that took the lives of thousands yesterday, and there is a celebration of 'victory' today – how ridiculous!

This place and the people around here are making less and less sense as time goes by. They are much driven by emotion of defending their helplessness over other country (particularly their neighbor of the same ancestors) that they claimed to have so much in rivals.
They seem to 'overly care' of what's happening outside than what's within – behind their own door is actually much more overwhelming agendas.

Why must they stress on protecting their culture to the extent of proclaiming a constitutional rights (while everyone knows that 'culture are hereditary and as neighbors who came from the same ancestors must have inherited of somewhat the same customs and civilization') when they have heaps of other internal problems to be worry about?

Have all the region under your govern been provided with clean drinking water yet?

Have all the children obtain their rights for free education?

Have all the poverty placed under a welfare?

How about the 1-bagger-per-1/2 km2 ? are they going to bag all their life and give birth to more baggers? Is 'bagging' a trend? Or an occupation?

Come on! WAKE UP people!! Enforce your arm before attacking others! Cure your wound before starting a fight! (Black Magic?? Amok? aren't those yesterdays??)

Honestly, the earthquakes that happened yesterday and last month, didn't quite hit my sympathy. Though I pitiful of my friends who are studying there and am sorry for the victims, but little am I dejected for it, yet despicable on how The People sees it – as if nothing. And how they reluctant to mention the name of their so-called-neighbour-in-rival in the news. Well… nothing for us to lose anyway. After all, it's you who are in trouble.
