“Laskar Pelangi”. That title is not a song from Nidji, instead, it is one of the Indonesian box office films. The movie that had been directed by Riri Riza, also known as The Rainbow Troops in English, is a film adapted from same titled novel by Andrea Hirata. Based on the film that had received several awards in 2009, there are many inspired characters had been introduced. The character that attracts me the most is Pak Harfan, casted by Ikranagara. He played role as the principal of SD Muhammadiyah. I am fascinated by his inspired words and fatherly side of him. He puts a great belief in his students. He once said that, “live to give as much as possible, not to receive as much”.
