The Time

gede-palgunadiWhat’s in a name! It is a famous quotation from the play of an English playwright, William Shakespeare. A rose, without being named a rose will remain to smell fragrant. Well, perhaps with this analogy, then Bali is still quite worthy to bear the name ‘Bali’ though its Balinese quality has started to fade. Probably, it sounds slightly like a joke, but try to observe it with an open, obvious and objective mind.  

Some repeated guests having come to Bali for a dozen of times surely have its own assessment on the contemporary condition of Bali. They attempt to compare the latest condition of Bali to the time when they first set foot on this island. Probably, they will compare the current condition of Bali to the Bali in the 1960s. Within such a long period of time, a number of changes have definitely happened to Sanur, Kuta, Ubud or other destinations where they have left beautiful impressions during their stay in Bali.

In the relatively long time, there must be a change. There is dynamics of society with its culture. Movement of physical development provides a color of change to the surrounding environment. However, from some notes on few talks at hand, the changes take place so fast and powerfully. There is something like ‘a face lift’ against Bali that can hardly be recognized anymore. What is it? By all means, it will highly depend on how the governance of Bali made by the government by involving all the existing components.

Bali has changed. Yes, it must do. Everything on earth should change in harmony with the passage of time. Nothing is eternal. Nothing lasts forever. However ..., has Bali been changing quite fast so that we find difficulty to identify the original face? It has happened to Kuta, Sanur, maybe to Ubud as well and other places. At villages it may still easily be recognized, how about in urban areas? We can no longer find the row of angkul-angkul or main entrance gates into house compound. Now, the row of shop-houses has replaced them adorned with the billboard of products, political parties, legislative candidates and community organizations.

Perhaps, it’s too naive if we later want to see Bali without a change. It’s naive. However, we want to see Bali with reasonable changes, naturally as the time goes by. Does time erode Bali faster? No, it does not at all. Time only accompanies, attaches it. It is the human eroding Bali faster, precisely its greed and stupidity.
