Celebrating a hundred years of maritime nation
I Made Andi Arsana
"Nenek moyangku orang pelaut/Gemar mengarung luas samudera/Menerjang ombak tiada takut/Menempuh badai sudah biasa ...." (Our ancestors were sailors/ They sailed across the oceans/ Challenged the waves fearlessly/Surfed the storm familiarly.) In the early 1990s or before, the above song was popular in Indonesia. I wonder whether Indonesian children nowadays still sing this song....
