‘Federal’ Rector

Hawé Setiawan

Journal | Saturday, January 4th, 2014 | sundanesecorner.org

 The rector of Pasundan University just came out of the university’s staff building of the when I was parking my bike on the campus’ yard this morning. He paused for a moment, and asked a few things about bike and its equipment to me while looking around and trying my old bike. As a beginner in riding a ‘Federal’, I just shared a bit of knowledge about this Indonesian-made bicycle, mainly what I had absorbed from my fellow Pasundan colleague Boy Irwan. Some of my colleagues, including ethnomusicology lecturer Rosikin W.K., joined in the conversation. ‘What if I take a picture of you, Sir, with my bike to promote cycling in our campus?’ I asked to Prof. Dr. H. Eddy Jusuf. He agreed, and even asked Pak Adeng, campus photographer, to immediately take his camera. Here are his photographs. Welcome to the club, Sir.
