Ranah 3 Warna





As I said before, my hubby's students conducted a program called Gerakan Seribu Buku at their campus. Out of the blue the students asked me to become a moderator for Bedah Buku Ranah 3 Warna, the second book of Negeri 5 Menara trilogy with the author, A. Fuadi. How could I say no? I myself also a big fan of Fuadi. I love Negeri 5 Menara Trilogy. I label the trilogy as a must read book.

So this morning I got the opportunity to meet one of my favorite author. Never thought that he's so humble. We had a discussion about his latest book. What a wonderful moment. Not only for me but also for all students. Hopefully the author spirit could influence the students. At least they dare to dream and keep telling themselves that nothing is impossible.

The book itself still tells about Alif, the lead character of the book, after graduating from Pondok Madani. Alif has a very hard struggle before he can continue his study at Unpad Bandung. Another dream comes. Alif wants to have an opportunity to study abroad. He now tries his luck as a scholarship hunter. At first, Alif still holds on to a magic spell from his teachers at Pondok Madani 'man jadda wajada' (if you really fight for it, you will get it). But life seems not always on his sides. Life is getting harder everyday. Until finally he remembers the second magic spell 'man shabara zhafira' (whoever has patience, he/she will be lucky).

Still as excellent as the first book, the second book tells about Alif's life in 3 places, in Bandung, Jordan and Canada. Alif's experiences are a good example for all of us. As a guy from a small village in Indonesia, he finally can conquer the world. The key is only be persistent. Never giving up. Keep on trying. Just started with a dream, then try to make it happen. It's not an easy thing to do. It needs a long and hard sacrifice. But at the end of the journey, you will be amazed to see God's gift. It's just the fruits of your patience.
