Helista, niqab, and literacy


Meet Helista, a 11 year old fat, chubby, cute girl with flary hair. When she was 9, two years ago, it was easy for anyone who lived in the same place with her, found her walking on her way home from school, holding some snacks on her hands. One hand holding a cup of sweet, colorful, unclear ingredients of a drink and the other hand holding fried tofu ball in a clear plastic bag. She bought different snacks every day.
At noon, often she was found sitting in a terrace of a neighbor rather than playing catch-and-run local game with her friends. That is a general picture of her physic and a bit of her casuals.

Living in a quite rural village, Sekebalingbing, doesn’t make her look like the other children who are very shy when talking to people other than their friends. First time I met her, she was different compared to the average kids in the village. She was talk-active with good structure of speech and clear enough articulation of Indonesian, can counter anyone whom she talked to no matter how old they are, respected people older than her, and caring to youngers. These good attitudes can be seen from her interactions and the way she paid attention to people around her. She served sincerely anyone whom she talked to in a friendly, communicative way. And the special thing was that she often paid attention to the behavior and gestures of each person in the class.

Unlike Saturday class with middle teens, Sunday morning class is more vary in students of elementary to senior high level. Unfortunately, the kind-hearted, sincere attention shown by Helista to her friends, especially the boys, turned negatively to her. The boys responded her badly. They showed no interest in the attention given by Helista. And sometimes the boys showing a disturbing feeling or sort of creepy body gesture, refusing her attention. However, such nice attitudes of her, thank goodness, stay on herself until now. She is seldom disappointed even she got bad attitudes from her friends.

This noon, around 3.30pm, I met her when I stood on the steps of the terrace. From far sight there was something unusual on her outfit. She was wearing a niqab (Indonesian: cadar). No matter how being covered she was, I can recognize her at that time because she was the only kid in the village, with unique physical natures. She also realizes that she has uncommon big posture for her age and she is never disappointed when people say that she is fat. This is another good attitude, positive mind of her own. She is so bubbly, except when she gets cold or feeling unwell.

Curious with her new look, I ended my phone call earlier and asked her to come over me. Then I made a 2-minutes recorded interview with her. When I have finished it and went inside, I got a text from her saying that she doesn’t want me to publish the interview video in any social media. “I didn’t have her number, then how she knew mine?” I talked to myself. What Helista did is also positive because for a village child in 5 grade of elementary school like her, where mobile phone and Internet do not reach people broadly in this village, she already know how to find my number without asking it to me in person, so anyhow I think she is already know how to do searching online.

Since she asked me not to post the interview video showing her face, I respect her decision though I feel tickled in my heart for the reason she said. So this writing will not be posted with the said video as my earlier plan. Later you can found here why her decision is tickled though.

This noon is the first time for the girls of youth generation who live in kampong Sekebalingbing and take weekend course with me, wearing niqab together. Start from the youngest, Hilda, a 4 grade student of primary school, to Imas, a 11 grade student of senior high school. They walked together for as far as 3 km, went down from the hill to a place nearby the main road. They attended a public speech by a so-called trendy ustadz (Indonesian: ustad gaul). Wearing niqab, a garment of clothing that covers face except right part of eyes, actually isn’t something new in Cimenyan area.

In the village, there is a religion-based boarding school for women that start operating in around 2009. Visiting the school complex, just for sight-seeing, in 2011, I found the building and it’s environment were quite natural. The school was located in a deep valley where the water flow sourced from Cisanggarung river flowing through this location. The alley to the boarding school was planted fully with bamboos, creating a quiet, shady atmosphere. I also noticed that only students in that school who wearing niqab, no one else out of the boarding school.

Different situation found when in March 2015 I came back to this village for building a house with my husband. Along the main street of the sub-district of Cimenyan, I found pretty much women wearing niqab. Start from street sellers who selling newspaper to local dish, young women passing over the street by motorcycles, to common housewives who didn’t have any activity for living.
Now, when entering the upper area of Pasirimpun Cimenyan we can see the view of women in niqab is quite frequent.

Talking about the outfit, the trend of niqab is successfully blown up by urban fashion designers which is widely welcomed by moslem women, young and old. I saw the trend of wearing niqab is not occurred only in several places but almost with one voice in this country, mostly in big cities like Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Makasar and the main districts and sub-districts.

As we might know, religion based groups and communities, including local boarding schools that require students to wear niqab as their uniform, contribute a lot in promoting the wearing of niqab goes viral. And visual da’wah through social media that so massive featured with publicity stunts such as a heroic niqaber riding a horse or playing archery game, even to various glamour, luxury gowns of niqab are presented all the time in social media.

Many of girls and young women are impressed by the visual of the elegance of the outfits.
It is not surprised if the wearing of niqab is accepted widely by urban to rural women in this country as long as their place is reached by the Internet. The swift of information flow especially in visual is easily digested by any age and consciousness.

Moreover, regardless of how the wearers view niqab for their selves, niqab is considered by most of them as a quite protective clothing. And so when I asked to Helista, “what do you think of wearing niqab?”, she said, “I just follow my senior friends saying that there is an order in our religion to not showing our face to non-mahram.” And when I asked if she already asked about it to her religion teacher she said, “No, I haven’t asked yet, I just informed by friends and saw posts in social media.”

Helista and her friends are so adaptable to any change. And it is reasonable when niqab is perceived emotionally by them as their clothing. There is subjectively no ideological elements on how the said girls or those women are moved to start wearing niqab. Wearing the niqab underconciously and emotionally, is just showing of disloyal and unstable wearers as reflected in my student answer when she was asked whether she also wears it at her school, while playing or swimming.

Something in the surface is easily flown by the flow, and something too extreme will soon or later floating up to the surface. Wearables as tool, should give the most reasonable function to the wearers without ignoring the comfort value. Eventually, no one can intervene into anyone decision of wearing certain cloth or not.

For me it is not about positive or negative value when someone decided to wearing niqab in one occasion and putting it off in other occasion, as long as they are still in respectable wears according to local norms. What I concern instead is that most women with low income are commonly working hard for their family. This is contrast to the generation that is too much concern to beauty in surface.

Disadvantaged women from old generation who as old as our grandma or great grandma never complain about their skin exposed to sun. They didn’t wear niqab nor any veils on their head but they worked hard outdoor. However, I must associate objectively the wearing of niqab to the world current climates. Not sure how the climate in the future as the impact of global warming, but if the temperatures getting extreme from time to time, then the instinct of human to wear something more protective is a natural law.

In this case, I see the wearing of niqab by old women in this village is realistic because they do the activities more outside the house. Their version of niqab, however, differs to the version of excessive clothing wore by middle to upper class women. The niqab the village women wore is with pants instead of gown.

Back to Helista pre-story. It was nearly no delay since my family moved to the village in December 2015, because in the first months 2016, children from the village and nearby areas asked me to teach them. There was a funny story that became a background of how the children requested to learn in our home.

One day a mother and her little son stopped by to our house. I said to her that his son looks different from the other children. Then she talked about her son’s supernatural traits and abilities at length. In short, she has a kind of indigo kid. Two weeks later, she came back bringing out all her children for a special purpose. She asked me to teach one of them, her indigo son.

“What should I teach to that boy?”, I said to myself. At first, of course, I refused her request. But then she urged me. Living in a village is unlike in the city that so individualistic. So, before I got work, I spent my time and started teaching that boy at early morning.
Most of the naïve village women didn’t know that I am tied up to professional tasks relating to my living, that I am a working woman and have schedules.

I knew she wanted me to specialize her son as reflected in what she said. As time goes by, I don’t know what was happened when this apparently buzzed the other mothers. A few weeks later, there were 5 women bringing out their children to my house. They requested the same thing.

Since the learning activity was became a buzz, I decided to limit the numbers of children can learn here. My co-worker, Artian, who handle English to Malay transcreation, since then came earlier in the morning. She worked as voluntary teacher for preschool children.

In the third quarter, I decided to pause one class because we get the primary to high senior level students more and more. So, in the first quarter 2017, I offered my other co-workers but no one accepted the offer, except Rachmy Kusumawaty. Then she also worked as voluntary teacher. She tackled English class for students in another nearby village, Cisanggarung.

For travelers who love visiting or urban people who experienced living in rural areas, I am sure, they will falling in love with the village children. That is also what happened to my co-workers above. How can we not loving them, especially when the children showing their enthusiast to know everything and obey to learn.

Their way of thinking is plain and simple, they answer things with their own imagination, and often asking things unexpectedly. Their kindness is also sincere. Even if the children are super naughty, they have something more specific potency hidden within their selves. In general, all children are special.

The request for learning English was started when about more than 20 children came to house and expressed their interest in reading books in our library. The idea itself came from their initiatives. I thought it was because they didn’t get any English lesson in their schools. So for me, English is just a media of learning as I ever told in Learn an Unwavering Mental Health from Children. And my concern on how important the language skills, in general definition, for parents as they are the one party who are responsible for their own children education, First, Don’t Forget Your Mother Tongue, is by putting literacy as a learning agenda for the children.

I have expectation that the children will understand about how to read correctly in order to comprehend what they read. The activities run smoothly and the children showing their thirst for knowledge. Children classic stories and tales in English were shared in the form of hardcopies, storytelling, and by watching the audiobooks in Youtube.

On another occasion, realizing that the children rarely go out the village, in the first year, sometimes I went with the teens class to bookstores. And to let the children know the other world out of their casuals, we also ever watched a movie together in a theatre, although it was held in small batches.

In August 2017, the Odesa Indonesia Foundation featuring Botram, an automobile group, facilitated the children to join their outdoor picnic program. Since then, as the initiative of Faiz Manshur, the chief of the foundation, the children get more books supplies. Over 90 En to Id (vv) dictionaries were donated to the children in Cisanggarung and Sekebalingbing areas by Botram through Mrs. Andini Putri.

The children also granted with best quality imported books and dictionaries from Prof. Arief Anshory Yusuf and his wife Mrs. Arraya through Mr. Budhiana Kartawidjaya, the chairman of the foundation. And lately, the children books collection is more rich thanks to the donation from many donators, especially from a book publisher company, Mizan as well as from individual, such as Mr. Gangsar Sukrisno, through Mr. Ahmad Baiquni and Mrs. Yuliani Liputo.

English classic stories and tales are just a first door to introduce the children to the next doors. As long as we are still alive, the children and us are still having time to keep learning. Children have opportunities as much as the literatures spread all over the world. And I have expectation that they will also go through a door that will push their interest in learning other literatures in classic Javanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese, etc.

Finally, our effort is only to direct and coach the children without coercion to a condition so that they are able to love reading, the true definition of reading, not only text, but also universe as a whole.*** (Siti Nur Aryani April 10 2018)

Emma and Company Social Responsibility


People in the past believe that knowledge is everything. At every level of society, knowledge has its unique role to determine whether someone is worth to recognize by community as to be known or deserving to have a higher social status or not.

Emma, a novel by Jane Austen, published in 1815, capturing a reality of women social status in England. Although someone has lower social status just because of poor in economy, they are possible to reach a higher status through a specific marriage by using their intellectual and skills. Jane Fairfax, is represented in the story as a poor woman yet smart in writing, playing piano, dancing and communication. Thus, with her knowledge and skills, she was encouraged by her friend, Emma, to marry a gentleman instead of marrying an ordinary farmer. While Emma, who is told in the story, as a rich, high-class woman and having much money with her skills in painting and playing piano, is told as a woman who at earlier preferred not marrying anyone.

Information to intellectual

Nowadays, knowledge is no longer limited to get, mostly for people in big cities. Internet can make everyone’s head full of information by instant. With new knowledge made of information, people will be triggered to compare and make any changes for their life. At certain level, people will be moved to make improvement in their activities for a better life. We can get anything from Internet. Free language course, online high education lecture, marketing tools, how to farm, personal development, how to make a startup, how to play music instruments, and other unlimited resources.

But such never exhausted information source in today 25 years old of World Wide Web or 45 years of Internet, where human have been uncovered for having huge information, are never experienced by most people in a region in West Bandung, named Cimenyan.

Cimenyan, is a district in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia, where the headquarter of Portalkata Indonesia (Potahouzz) is currently located. The land where the SOHO (small office home office) building stand, was firstly found by accident by two of the company founders. The land is surrounded relative closely by two mountains, Palasari and Manglayang. And luckily, the east side of the building facing East proportionally so every day we are served with different sunrise views. There is a spring water in a rice field in the south side of the building. In summer like this August, the area of the land is never exhausted of water flow.

Realizing that we stand in a very fertile soil, we never want to hurt the land. We always want to let the land free. Just let the plants live there. Let the worms, frogs, toads, snakes, dragonflies and microorganism live in the soil. To preserve the ecosystem, we grow some plants of vegetables and fruits. Such eco-friendly environment surrounding the SOHO, creating a specific comfort place that ideal for media content and translation services company like us. A fresh air, quite place. At late noon to night, animals start making their beautiful, relaxing sounds. Isn’t it ideal for such writing and research activities?

Each of the company top managerial member is or former professional who brushed up years in best companies abroad and the capital city. The author itself also ever worked and lived in big city, Jakarta for long years. But that is not a big deal whether we live in a crowded, full of pollutant city or a green land. Everything is a process if it is not a choice. A happy or unhappy working should not be measured by any dimension, should it? We can say time and place as a hardware that is relative and dynamic by nature, and our mind of intellect we may call it as the software. Both aspects, shall work in harmony giving us meaning if our inner intellect which is called as the firmware, a hundred percent working to provide the true meaning.

The beautiful, happy nature of the area, on the other side is contrary with the people live there. Most people in the area do not have access to education. Most adult to youth got education to elementary or junior high level only. Girls are averagely getting married while their age are 14 or while they are in first grade of junior high school. There are only two to three schools that need to access about 4 to 7 km long on foot. There is no public transportation and poor farmers do not have private transportation for their children go to school.

Starting with many children that always reading books in our mini library plus the said reality did not take long consideration for us to make a small effort. Within our working activity, in early morning for 2 hours in three days and on Sunday, we perform an informal free universal based school for 20 to 25 children. English as intermediate language is only a medium to attract students with something new. The ideal goal of the education itself is for building character with skills targeted on drawing, mapping, writing and farming through a fun and happy schooling method. This August is right the second year of the schooling performed. We believe that this culture based approach of education will bring local wisdom and bright future for our children.*** Siti Nur Aryani

Prospek Pekerja TI di Indonesia


Ada anggapan, memilih studi dalam bidang teknologi informasi (TI) memiliki nilai lebih ketimbang bidang lainnya. Terutama untuk mencari pekerjaan dan meraih gaji tinggi setelah kelulusan. Memang, asumsi ini ada benarnya, karena pada dasarnya perusahaan di masa kini sangat membutuhkan tenaga TI. Hal ini juga tidak lepas dari keahlian teknis dan tanggung jawab tenaga TI untuk menunjang operasional bisnis perusahaan, bahkan tak jarang terlibat secara penuh 

Akan tetapi, untuk urusan gaji, sebenarnya agak berlebihan jika profesi ini disebut-sebut bergaji lebih tinggi ketimbang profesi di bidang lain. Tahun 1994-1999-an seorang lulusan baru sebagai pekerja penuh waktu (full-time) dengan profesi setaraf programmer, analis sistem, administrator sistem, administrator jaringan, administrator database, dan sebagainya, memperoleh kisaran penghasilan bersih rata-rata antara Rp. 2,2 – 2,8 juta per bulan. Sementara bagi pekerja paruh waktu (part-time) upah yang diperoleh di kisaran Rp.100-250 ribu per jam. Upah ini biasanya akan bertambah di tahun berikutnya atau pada perpanjangan kontrak selanjutnya.

Untuk ukuran Indonesia, nilai gaji lulusan baru untuk profesi TI di atas memang cukup tinggi dibanding dengan pekerja lulusan baru dari profesi lain. Namun demikian, nilai upah tersebut tetap saja masih tergolong rendah dibanding upah di negeri-negeri maju. Yang jelas, anggapan profesi TI dengan gaji tinggi sempat ramai dan diyakini masyarakat, bahkan memperoleh perhatian serius dari kalangan pengusaha bisnis pendidikan.

Tak heran sejak 1999 marak bermunculan lembaga pendidikan dan sekolah tinggi komputer untuk program D-1, D-3, dan S-1. Bahkan sejak Institut Teknologi Bandung dan Universitas Indonesia ditetapkan menjadi BHMN, perguruan tinggi ini pun seolah tidak ingin kalah berbisnis dengan cara mendirikan program-program serupa.

Sesuai hukum pasar, semakin banyak ketersediaan sumber daya manusia maka nilai jualnya kian turun. Seorang programmer lulusan baru bahkan kini rata-rata hanya dihargai Rp. 1,2-1,8 juta per bulan. Perkembangan sistem object oriented dan embeded modul sekarang memang memudahkan kerja seorang programmer. Akan tetapi, programmer dan profesi TI lainnya akan tetap bekerja melebihi jam kerja normal, tanpa diperhitungkan sebagai jam lembur. Anehnya, dengan gaji senilai itu sebagian besar dari mereka pernah membayar biaya pembangunan gedung kuliah Rp. 25-50 juta lebih. Jika memandangnya sebagai investasi, bukankah hal ini dapat dikatakan “besar pasak daripada tiang?”

Selain faktor kompetisi, perusahaan memang memperketat formula relasi antara keahlian dengan gaji. Kendati hampir di setiap iklan di media cetak maupun media online lowongan untuk profesi ini menduduki posisi terbanyak, permintaan dan penawaran untuk SDM-nya masih di bawah standar. Masih banyak lulusan bidang ini yang menjadi pengangguran.

Mengapa? Hal ini disebabkan keahlian teknis individual yang dimiliki tidak berbanding lurus dengan kebutuhan pasar. Terutama di perkotaan, saat ini penguasaan teknologi bukan lagi sebagai keunggulan kompetitif antarindividu atau antarperusahaan. Hampir setiap pelajar, mahasiswa, dan pekerja mengenal serta menggunakan komputer. Dua faktor yang krusial adalah menyangkut soal SDM dan perusahaan.

SDM di bidang TI sangat berlimpah, tetapi secara umum mutu SDM-nya masih rendah, bahkan di bawah standar. Artinya, para praktisi  kurang memiliki keahlian yang sekarang ini sangat diperlukan, yakni keahlian teknis; kemampuan mengadopsi perkembangan teknologi; kemampuan nalar yang baik dan terlatih; serta kemampuan melakukan kerja sama tim (team work) secara baik di era globalisasi kini.

Untuk soal ini saya perlu mengangkat kasus kecil. Lazimnya, pekerja TI selalu berhubungan dengan perangkat komputer. Namun jika seseorang yang sedang bekerja dengan laptopnya masih refleks mencari pensil dan kertas saat hendak mencatat pesan dari percakapan telepon,  hal ini mencerminkan kebiasaan teknisnya dalam berinteraksi dengan komputer.

Kejadian tersebut memang sering ditemui saat kita berada di rumah, kantor maupun dalam kegiatan belajar-mengajar. Kegagapan dalam penggunaan komputer bagi orang yang jarang menggunakannya adalah hal lumrah. Namun tidak semestinya bagi pekerja TI yang umumnya berinteraksi 12-20 jam dalam sehari dengan komputer dan aplikasinya.Hal sederhana ini akan membawa pada kesadaran profesi, yakni jika ingin bertahan di profesi TI, seorang programmer atau engineer mutlak menghayati aktivitas mereka dengan cara berinteraksi secara intens dan terus menerus dengan dunia komputer dan cyber.

Kualitas SDM seperti yang dicontohkan pada ilustrasi di atas memang tidak terlepas dari latar belakang pendidikan. Sangat disayangkan jika sampai kini mayoritas penyelenggara pendidikan TI masih menggunakan kurikulum usang. Misalnya, sebuah kurikulum masih berisi paket mata kuliah yang mengajarkan bagaimana cara menggunakan Winword atau cara membuat lembar presentasi menggunakan aplikasi PowerPoint. Terus terang mayoritas kurikulum di perguruan tinggi BHMN terkemuka pun menurut saya sangat jauh dari ideal. Inilah yang mengakibatkan banyak mahasiswa tidak kreatif.

Faktor kedua, menyangkut industri dan perusahaan. Seperti disinggung di atas, teknologi itu sendiri kini juga bukan lagi keunggulan kompetitif antarperusahaan. Yang menjadi sarana efektif dalam persaingan di zaman sekarang adalah kemampuan mengadopsi teknologi terbaru secara seketika. Dengan demikian, ada dua catatan utama yang harus diperhatikan perusahaan. Pertama, apakah SDM (baik internal maupun alih daya) yang tersedia memiliki kekuatan dalam berkompetisi di era globalisasi? Kedua, adakah SDM yang memiliki komitmen bersaing di pasar internasional?

Jika kedua faktor tersebut bersinergi, secara alami sistem tawar-menawar nilai SDM TI  pun akan berjalan sesuai dengan hukum permintaan dan penawaran pasar. Kita bisa ambil sistem yang pernah berjalan di Kanada atau Amerika Serikat. Nilai gaji pekerja TI baik penuh waktu ataupun kontrak, tergantung tidak hanya pada pengalaman dan keahlian, melainkan pula lokasi (kota, provinsi), tunjangan (asuransi jiwa, asuransi gigi, medis, obat-obatan, pilihan saham), bonus, ukuran perusahaan, dan faktor lainnya.

Penentuan nilai gaji antara pekerja lulusan baru, pekerja lama, dan level manajer sangat bergantung pada ukuran perusahaan, serta tingkat manajemen dalam hierarki perusahaan. Eugene Pik, Spesialis Senior Teknik Bank Montreal, Kanada menuturkan pada saya bahwa pasaran gaji setaraf manajer TI di Kanada dan AS kini rata-rata berkisar antara US$60-100 ribu per tahunnya untuk posisi selain wakil direktur. Nah, jika kemampuan individu dan kebutuhan industri sudah sinergis, tak ada lagi yang perlu dicemaskan.

Selain Cina, Kita Patut Belajar dari India


Kemajuan Teknologi Informasi-Komunikasi

Sadar bahwa negeri kita serba tertinggal dari laju perkembangan industri dan modernisasi, para pengamat globalisasi selalu mengajak kita belajar dari negeri Cina. Bukan karena hadist nabi, “belajarlah sampai ke negeri Cina” yang memprovokasi kita, melainkan karena di negeri Tirai Bambu itu perkembangan pesat sedang terjadi. Memang, pelajaran revolusi industri dan ekonomi yang telah mengantarkan negeri Cina sebagai kekuatan Negara adidaya itu patut kita pelajari.

Seluler yang Sarat Inovasi


Jumlah pengguna ponsel GSM di Indonesia saat ini baru sekitar 30 juta orang dari jumlah 220 juta penduduk
Indonesia. Dari jumlah tersebut, sekira 5,2 persen didominasi PT Telkomsel. Adapun pengguna telefon tetap tanpa kabel (nirkabel) yang menggunakan teknologi CDMA baru menguasai 20 persen.
Para operator tampaknya semakin optimistis menggaet pelanggan baru. Hal ini disebabkan penduduk
Indonesia masih banyak belum menggunakan telekomunikasi seluler.

Berbasis inovasi

Seiring dengan makin banyaknya pengguna telekomunikasi bergerak, terlihat berbagai perkembangan layanan yang semakin inovatif. Kita lihat akhir-akhir ini, CDMA maupun GSM telah memberikan layanan data dan internet. Layanan seperti ini tentu akan membuka peluang bagi bisnis telekomunikasi tersendiri. Masyarakat butuh komunikasi yang serba baru dan serba canggih. Semakin canggih sarana komunikasi diciptakan, semakin bosan seseorang memakai layanan yang lama. Maka, inovasi paduan antara internet dan seluler sebagai sesuatu yang baru di Indonesia jelas mempunyai prospek tersendiri. Continue reading “Seluler yang Sarat Inovasi”
