Government’s plan to build monorail system in Bandung becomes main topic of Manglé‘s articles in this week. Quoting a statement of West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan, the magazine states that an agreement has recently been signed by the provincial government and its Chinese counterpart to build monorail infrastructures in the city next year. According to the report, the government believes that the system will solve mass transportation problems in this rapid-growing city.

Meanwhile, on the editorial page, the editors remind Muslim who just returned from the Holy City of Mecca of their religious and social duties in their home country. Everyone knows that only well-to-do Muslim can afford to travel to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj pilgrimage. If they are able to perform such an expensive undertaking, the must be able to perform the less expensive ones like giving charity to the needy neighbours.

Its literary pages offer poems by Arif Abdilah and short stories by Dian Amaliasari, Dadi Margana, and Anggi Novia Dewi.

Manglé’s editorial staff Taufik Rahayu contributes to this post.
