Ucok - Caver at Buniayu Cave, Sukabumi.
Ucok is one of the cave guides at Buniayu Caving & Adventures. He joined in Indonesia Caver Society and he’s been doing this since long time ago.
He said that there are about 80 caves around there. But only 4 caves that have been explored.
"Every cave that has been explored by humans, the growth and life within it will be inhibited. We have to keep the balance of nature."
The darkness in the cave exceeds when we close our eyes. It is an absolute eternal darkness. But he had to familiarize himself to it.
"Know your earth well before you are interred into it"

Suhadi - Street’s Coffee Seller at Pancoran Fly Over, Jakarta

It was raining when Suhadi parked his bike under Pancoran flyover. Turns out that the rain benefits him, a few people bought Suhadi’s coffee while waiting for the rain to stop.

"Selling coffee with just a simple cart-bike is more efficient without having to change the function of our sidewalk. If a police officer scolded me, I would just be friendly to him."

Bu Kokom - Housewife live at Jakarta Suburbs.

She was smoking her last ciggarate while I stopped by at her house. She invited me to join her for a short conversation. 

Bu Kokom live in a small wooden house around the suburb area. 

"Since my husband passed away, I just live by myself but it doesn’t make me feel so lonely. I still have a vegetable garden and 3 cats to be taken care of."

Aroma wangi dupa menyeruak sampai ke luar Pura Aditya Jaya Rawamangun, Jakarta Timur pada sehari sebelum hari raya Nyepi 30 Maret 2014. Sebelum peringatan Hari Raya Nyepi 1936, umat Hindu memperingati rangkaian ritual perayaan Catur Brata. Salah satu ritual dalam perayaan Catur Brata adalah upacara Buta Yadnya yang dilaksanakan sehari sebelum Nyepi, yaitu pada “tilem sasih kesanga” (bulan mati yang ke-9). Dalam upacara Buta Yadnya, umat Hindu  mengambil salah satu dari jenis-jenis caru (semacam sesajian) sesuai kemampuannya. Buta Yadnya ini ditujukan kepada Sang Buta Raja, Buta Kala dan Batara Kala, dengan memohon supaya mereka tidak mengganggu umat. Buta Yadnya itu masing-masing bernama Pañca Sata(kecil), Pañca Sanak (sedang), dan Tawur Agung (besar). Tawur atau pecaruan sendiri merupakan penyucian/pemarisuda Buta Kala, dan segala leteh (kekotoran) diharapkan sirna semuanya.

Mengenakan baju berhem putih bagi laki-laki dan kebaya bagi yang perempuan, umat Hindu yang tinggal di kawasan Jakarta Timur memasuki komplek Pura Aditya Jaya Rawamangun untuk mengikuti upacara Buta Yadnya. Sebelum masuk ke Mandale Utama untuk sembahyang, umat Hindu harus mengambil sesajen dan air suci serta tak lupa mengenakan selendang yang mengikat di bagian pinggang kebawah.  Selama ritual sembahyang atmosfer suci nan sakral terasa sekali menyelimuti disekitar lingkungan pura meskipun keberadaan pura terletak di pinggir jalan layang Tol Cawang-Tanjung Priok yang cukup ramai. Keramaian tersebut merupakan sebuah tantangan atas godaan yang harus dilawan selama melakukan rangkaian ritual Catur Brata.

Seusai melakukan doa, pemangku pura yang datang langsung memberikan berkat air suci ke setiap umat yang hadir di Pura Aditya Jaya Rawamangun. Kemudian ritual selanjutnya adalah Tawur Agung yaitu, arak-arakan Ogoh-Ogoh, sosok patung buto, di depan pelataran Pura Aditya Jaya Rawamangun.

Dalam perayaan Catur Brata sendiri terdiri dari amati geni, amati karya, amati lelungan, dan amati lelanguan. Inti dalam ritual Catur Brata adalah sebuah perenungan atau refleksi atas kesalahan yang pernah diperbuat seseorang. Catur Brata memiliki arti sudah tidak memikirkan masalah duniawi, semua kembali kepada iman.

Jerry & Ade - Punk Community at Kota Tua, Jakarta
Jerry said that live in Jakarta is more equal than outside of Java Island. He was sent to State Apparatus School for community service because back then he supported punk community when there’s a conflict in Aceh.
"Many thugs style like punk, but there’s no punk in their heart."
Ade confessed that he was only 15 years old. He ran away from his home when he was younger.
They take care each other just like brothers. Ade prayed for Jerry’s succeed. And Jerry said to him, 
"You better cuss me rather than pray for me. Because God is listening your curse more than your pray."
