STANDARDS

gede-palgunadiMy parents are native to Bali. My late grandfather and grandmother were native to Bali, too. So, both of my younger sisters and I are Balinese. During our childhood, we were always purchased new clothes every celebration of religious holidays. By all means, the sikut (in Balinese) meaning ukuran in Indonesian and ‘size or standard’ in English of mine and my younger sister will be surely different. Aside from having difference in terms of sex, my younger sisters have different size of body.  

In the Balinese philosophy, all the people, places, cultures and so forth have their own standard. It represents a very broad meaning and not only limited to the size but more than that. It is broader and more profound.

Standard may also signify one’s point of view about something. Point of view will possibly lead to an interpretation and assessment. It’s very relative. However, please remember that people have their own standards.

In this context, I would like to remind of some views as well as assessment of some people or figures. For instance, they have their own viewpoint regarding the position and condition of Bali tourism compared to the other destinations. Bali is frequently compared to Hawaii, Hong Kong and Thailand. In many cases, in the context of the comparison, it raises a viewpoint as if Bali was ‘better’. Approximately, here are the quotations of their phrase: “Bali should not duplicate Hong Kong that only has tall buildings, Bali should not duplicate Hawaii or Bali should not duplicate Thailand that legalizes sex tourism.”

Regardless of the good intention of the precaution, it also implies how we have forgotten our ‘standards.’ I have visited Hawaii, Hong Kong and Thailand. Nothing is wrong. Instead, we should learn a lot from them. Learn many aspects. If our accusation is then correct, it happens because it is indeed appropriate with their standards.

Then, how about Bali? Bali certainly has its own standards. At least, we develop the cultural tourism. However, has the standard been appropriate with the reality in the field? Please answer the question by yourself! (Gde Palgunadi)
