I am writing this post as I sit in a night train, on my way to another province in my country called Jogjakarta. I’m passing a city called Cirebon.

You will read another story of my thoughts, or so you can say, a story from my heart. It is so dark outside. It is about 9:45 p.m and every passenger in this train is busy with his or her own things, and some of th...

Recently, I went through something that was pretty revelatory. I mean, I never understood why some things in terms of global issue prioritization made it first/ over Education. In my opinion, I always thought and always will think that Education comes first.

Upon asking the reasons for whatever illness they had acquired, I realized...
