Gesang
Should hold a National Hero Status





"Those
who don't learn from history are condemned to repeat it" and "A great
nation is one which fully appreciates its heroes." say popular English
aphorism and national adage. Then, proposing an important person who has taken
a role in our nation history is important. I think Gesang should be a national
hero.



Who have
never heard Bengawan Solo song? I doubt it if there is. This keroncong song has
been a part of national voices. Gesang is a senior composer whose songs gained
fame all the way to Japan. He has received a number of awards in art and
everyone will admit that his art talent was dedicated to this nation.



Government
has declared the other great composer; WR. Suratman and Ismail Marzuki as
national Heroes. Gesang might not be compared to others, but in my opinion,
Gesang is as great as them. All of them are maestros. Due to his keroncong
music maestro, Gesang has taken a role in building our national identity.



It is
obvious that government should name Gesang National Hero. We should not delay
and wait for, in case, our neighbor countries or other international
communities go a head to recognize him and grant an award for what he deserves.
