Happy Birthday/Selamat Hari Kemerdekaan Republik Indonesia

To All our Indonesian friends, associates and blog readers,

Dr. Kamsiah and I wish you all a Happy Independence Day with lots of admiration and feelings. You have come a long way and are now poised to  become the  solid rock of ASEAN in times of global tension and great stress.  It took the people of Indonesia a lot of sacrifices and trials and tribulations to build a nation of diversity and unity, rich in culture and history. But you can justifiably proud of what Indonesia is today. –Dr. Kamsiah Haider and Din Merican

One thought on “Happy Birthday/Selamat Hari Kemerdekaan Republik Indonesia

  1. “Terbang tinggi di Angkasa” is what Indonesia will strive for and accomplish.

    It is a great country endowed with bountiful natural resources and an expansive compact society representative of all faiths, culture and heritage. The people are cultured and their mannerism, spoken language and courtesy can captivate the hearts of outsiders.

    Fortunately the country has not fallen prey to the effect of overpowering ultra Wahabist Islamism of Saudi Arabia to the extent Malaysia has been reduced to. The country’s leadership, committed to the tenets of pancasila, is wary of the pernicious effects of Islamic extremism and is taking all steps to combat it and not allow it to take root.

    I have a sense that in the distant future, the world will be led by countries like Germany. Japan, Israel and Indonesia and not by US, China, Russia and India who are reaching their plateau. Germany and Japan, in particular, are scientifically very advanced and may have many things in the making and in store, which they may not be revealing in order to secure their long term interests and objectives – both defensive and offensive. Indonesia is rising star with immense potential to become a big power.
