Appreciating Indonesia: Republished by Jakarta Globe
When feedback is hard to come by, positive reinforcement does not even seem possible. However, two weeks ago I wrote a piece inspired by a particular dinner meeting. The message has stayed on the tip of my tongue for the past few years, but it took a whole lot of smoke and a milestone election to push it to the tips of my fingers. A few days after publishing the piece, I received several encouragements to present it to a larger audience.
In Jakarta, there are two English publications that I have worked with: Jakarta Post and Jakarta Globe. Within five days of submitting the piece, it was published on the blog section of the Jakarta Globe. Sorry for the delay but finally I am able to re-feature this piece on KisahJika.com. Since this article has triggered strong feelings of many readers, I would be interested to hear your thoughts either on the comment section below or at the comment section underneath the Jakarta Globe article. Enjoy!
