Rudana by Indra-2

 Rudana –Look up the Sky by Indra Leonardi

I was born on in 17 September 1948 in a small village of  Gelogor , Lodtunduh, in Ubud, Bali. I’m the 3rd of seven siblings, and has four brothers and two sisters. My father was a farmer and also a member of the Balinese Gamelan group. Mother was a devoted Hindu  making all sorts of offering ( called Banten ) to their Gods.   

 My father, taken in 2003. he passed away in 2005 at the age of 100.

  I finished high school in Denpasar in 1968. Realizing that my parents could not support me to pursue my dream to university, I decided to take  a Teacher College in 1969-1970 in Madiun city, East Java after failed in the Military Academy entrance test in Lembang West Java. Then I   came back to Bali in 1970 as an apprentice math teacher in a  Junior High School for a year with very low wages. To make ends meet I took free lance job as a local guide up to 1973. 









  aniheartcolorsc.gif  I got married in 1973, a year later, my first son, Putu Supadma Rudana was born, followed by   Ari Putra Rudana ( born in 1976), and two daughters,  Komang Kristina Rudana  and Ketut Friska Lavrina  Rudana. Except Ari, who decided to pursue his study in Bali, all my children pursued their graduate and post graduate studies overseas, in Australia and USA. This is a dream come true for me to be able to provide the best educations in international environment and nurturing their talents as well.

 As a Balinese, who have a motto of Tat Wam Asi,  You are Me and I am You, I believe that everybody in the world is of one principle brotherhood. We are related. Humans, plants and animals, we are share the same elements.

    Yang terhormat Bapak Nyoman Rudana,

    Saya mau minta tolong bisa nggak nyariin tanggal dan bulan eka dasa ludra pada tahun 1979 di Pura Besakih. Kapan mulainya dan berakhir.

    Karena itu sangat penting buat saya untuk tahu tanggal dan bulan kelahiran saya. kata Ibu, saya dulu lahir pada saat eka dasa ludra 1979 pas hari Senin.

    Terima kasih banyak sebelumnya. Kadek

  5. Pak….bagaimana kabar anaknya FRISKA????

  6. Salam kenal pak!

    Kebetulan saya sedang menempuh pendidikan di almamater bapak, pejompongan, dan saya kagum dengan semangat yang bapak miliki, masih menyempatkan diri memanfaatkan IT sebagai media komunikasi (ilmu tidak mengenal usia). Saya tidak kenal bapak dan dari sisi etnis saya sangat jauh berbeda, tapi dari tulisan bapak seolah-olah kita sudah lama kenal.

    Salam hormat,
