Excellencies, Presidents, Leaders,When, in the early morning, in a mist of cloudy weather, you enter your office, sit down and start working, what do you hear, what do you smell? Human voices, the perfume of freshly made coffee, sun rays shining a light on your working table?After having worked long hours you return home and in your bedroom, in the silence of the night, you can sleep knowing that the following day you’ll get up again, in a mist of cloudy weather.Solving wars, finding impossible...

Being in your early 20s when you are a female Indonesian is hard for those of us who want to achieve our dreams. Even in this 21st century, stereotypes against women are still very much alive, even in the central region of our country, Jakarta. The majority of our society still sees a woman as someone who's created to be someone's life partner, and her core existence is to continue the life line of human-beings.Our country was once very conservative about women's freedom, let alone about getting...

Have you often, caught your mind aimlessly wandering away in the middle of a conversation? Do you ever feel the need to excuse yourself out of a social gathering for no apparent reason? More often than not, do you find yourself constantly being prodded with the question 'Why do you look so lost?' I can positively say that I've found myself grappling with the above situations for as long as I can remember. My friends often, tell me that I have an uncanny ability to tune out of conversations very...

We are walking through the desert on the opposite sides of it.Everything seems still.The falcons are flying over our heads and are searching for each other - just like you and me.You came closer, you are almost next to me, but still too far for me to see you.Somewhere around me I feel your steps getting closer rapidly.Just so you didn't know that I waited for you all this time, I hid myself behind a sand mountain and curled myself up in the shadow.You stopped walking, just to hear where my foots...

In search of a satisfying definition… We talk about freedom and liberty all the time and tend to embrace these notions. Freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion, freedom of information etc. But what do these two terms mean exactly? Finding a satisfying and suitable definition is not as easy as it might seem at first. First of all, let us look at official definitions. Liberty is defined by the oxford dictionary as “The state of being free within society from oppressive restric...

I am a lucky girl to have been born in Rawanduz, a town located in Northern part of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains and lovely waterfalls. Apart from these, Rawanduz is best known for its deep ravines – the Kharand – which hug our town from both sides. I have beautiful memories about the ravines. They teach me a new lesson every day. People usually visit these landscapes and forget about them the minute they leave. But for me, it is difficult to wipe them...
