Every April 21 people
in indonesia commemorate the kartini day. It is beautiful day for the woman
because we celebrate the birth of great lady R.A. Kartini. Everyone knows who
Kartini is. She is our national heroine and a great lady with the bright idea.
Kartini was born in
1879 April 21 in mayong jepara. Her father was Rama Sosroningrat a Wedana
(assistant of head of regency) in mayong. Her mother, Ma Ngasirah was a girl
from Teluk Awur village in Jepara as the daughter of a noble family, she felt
luck because she got more than the ordinary people got. She got better
education than other children. In november 12 1903 she married adipati
djoyodiningrat, the head of rembang regency. According to javanese tradition
Kartini had to follow her husband. Then she moved to rembang.
In September 13 1904
she gave a birth to her son. His name was Singgih. But after giving birth to a
son, her condition was getting worse and she finally passed away on september
17 1904 on her 25 years old.
Now Kartini has gone.
but her spirit and dream will always be in our heart. Nowadays Indonesian women
progress is influenced by kartini's spirit stated on collection of letter
"habis gelap terbitlah terang" or from the dusk to the dawn.
