Looking on the bright side

Anies Baswedan

The Jakarta Post, March 17, 2011
According to the political pundits Anies Baswedan has got “the right stuff” to be a future president. He comes from a famous family with a creditable past — his grandfather AR Baswedan was an independence activist.
He was raised in Yogyakarta, the cultural center of Java, the son of academics. His wife Fery Farhati is a psychologist. He’s overseas educated, unafraid of criticizing the government and isn’t squeamish about attacking Islamic hardline violence.
Baswedan is young (41), personable and ably articulates a future Indonesia where its well-educated citizens stand tall and proud, achievers yielding to none. His speciality is lambasting the merchants of gloom.
“Let’s stop saying Indonesia is a poor country,” said the rector of the Paramadina University with some passion.
