Ancient Balinese Palm Scripts

Man has always had the foresight to realize the importance of recording details for future preservation. History indicates that long before paper was invented, man attempted to leave his mark by etching on cave walls and pieces of stone. Another form of documentation that is thought to have been initiated within the Nusantara archipelago, which is now known as Indonesia, was the tradition of writing on pieces of palm leaf known as lontar.

Jakarta and Bali to Host Women Playwrights
Nov 17, 2006

Indonesia will host the 7th Women Playwrights International Conference from Nov. 19 through Nov. 26. The conference will take place in Jakarta (Nov. 19-24) and in Bali (Nov. 25-26) with an agenda that may help stimulate the improvement of theater in this diverse nation. Indonesia was chosen as the host of the 7th conference during the 6th conference in Manila in 2003. A number of world-class authors will share their views at the forum. They are Nawal El Saadawi of Egypt, Mumbi Kaigwa (Kenya), Noelle Janaczewska and Julie Holledge (Australia), Sanae Iijima (Japan) and Eleanor Wong (Singapore). Not only will the conference host seminars and discussions; it will also present cultural performances, handicraft exhibitions and workshops. Conference chairperson Ratna Sarumpaet and her Satu Merah Panggung Theater will perform Pelacur dan Sang Presiden (the Prostitute and the President) at Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM), Central Jakarta, on Nov. 24. Australian Julie Janson will play Tsunami Tsunami while Beverly Andrews from Britain will perform One September Night, a play set in Britain on the evening of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. It focuses on a young couple -- an Asian Muslim and his wife, a white Briton -- who travel to his parents' home to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. During the course of their journey they discuss and argue about the terrible events that have taken place that day. In addition, Suzy Messerole and Meena Natarajan from the U.S. will perform in Draw To Circles. Definitely, the event will be a forum that reflects cultural liberty in a diverse world -- coined as the theme of this year's conference.

Garuda: Direct Flight to Bali
Nov 15, 2006

Indonesian carrier Garuda has had a rethink on network services from Australia to Bali and decided to maintain scheduled flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane direct to Bali. The airline’s president director, Emirsyah Satar, said the operation of Jakarta as a single hub had been one option under consideration but that Garuda Indonesia would not stop international flights to Bali. However, the airline’s efficiency and the requirement to maximize profitability was an ongoing priority.Emir reconfirmed Garuda’s commitment to the promotion of tourism in Indonesia, including Bali, saying in 2006, Garuda committed in excess of 1.1 million seats to international flights into Bali, or around 30 per cent of total passengers.Planning for the Australian winter schedules is still underway. Suranto Yitnopawiro, regional manager Southwest Pacific for Garuda Indonesia, said final schedules would be dictated by market demand, route profitability and the availability of suitable aircraft.
