Ceritalah Indonesia chronicles the transformation of Indonesia from 1998 to 2014. Once a nation in turmoil, Indonesia is now a rising regional power thanks to the wisdom of its leaders and the resilience of its people.
The writer Karim Raslan - who has travelled across the archipelago for more than 20 years - explores the lives and stories of ordinary Indonesians across the archipelago while also identifying new, emerging, challenges to Indonesia.
He explores four locations which highlights the stunning diversity of Indonesia - Solo, Banda Aceh, Ambon and Surabaya - to understand one of the most remarkable developments of our time.
The description of the episode on Solo: Zaman Edan (Part 2)
Interviewed here is Hendi, a youth who was caught up in the troubles.
Solo and much of the republic have undergone a "Zaman Edan", or time of transition and there are fears that the turmoil will return.
Nevertheless, Karim argues that the wisdom of Indonesia’s leaders, as well as the work of men like Sumartono will see Solo and Indonesia through.
