The state must let its citizens understand their country. Indonesia should not be strange to its citizens. The state must explain its ideology, its constitution, its laws and its rules. By deeply understanding the country, the citizens will increasingly love their country. This was disclosed by Deputy Chairman of the People's Consultative Assembly -MPR, Hidayat Nur Wahid in the Socialization of the Four Pillars of the MPR in Klaten, Central Java more recently, as quoted page mpr.go.id.

He explained that this socialization is intended for Indonesian citizens to have an in-depth understanding of Indonesia so that they love their country. Hidayat also disclosed that understanding the country is necessary. Hidayat took an example that developed country like Soviet Union could be divided into several countries because communist ideology is an imported ideology. He perceived that Indonesia which is an archipelagic country is more vulnerable to split. But reform in Indonesia does not make Indonesia split. Because, Indonesia has ideology Pancasila that is able to unite Indonesian figures and citizens.

Meanwhile, Secretary General of MPR, Ma'ruf Cahyono in the Quiz Competition of Four Pillars in Jakarta recently, as quoted mpr.go.id stated that MPR will continue to instill this nationality values, because the challenges ahead will be more severe. He also perceived that to face these challenges, Indonesia must have two main points: the resilience of ideology and competitiveness. In terms of competitiveness, according Ma'ruf, Indonesia inevitably has to compete domestically and internationally. He added that the identity must be present in every citizen of Indonesia.

Prior to the month of Ramadan, the prices of staple food in some regions in Indonesia have skyrocketed. For the majority of the Muslim population of Indonesia, the month of Ramadan is the holy month when they are obliged to fast every day for one month. After Ramadan, there is Idul Fitri or Lebaran Day which is the biggest feast in Indonesia. The problem is that during the month of Ramadan, food consumption tends to increase. Most of Indonesian people, especially Muslims think that during Ramadan they need to improve nutrition and quality of food to balance the obligations of fasting. On Idul Fitri day like great days in other countries, people usually provide the best dishes for families and friends. So, the increase in food prices is not a new thing for Indonesian people. This is like a "tradition". Despite the availability of stock and smooth distribution of food such rice or meat, the prices are already "automatically" rising, as if the prices of basic necessities both prior to Ramadan, during Ramadan and post-Idul Fitri should rise.

Director General of Animal Husbandry and Animal Health at the Ministry of Agriculture, I Ketut Diarmita said that chicken meat is sufficient before the fasting month and Idul Fitri 2018 and even, the chicken eggs are surplus. Meanwhile, Director General of Horticulture of the Ministry of Agriculture Suwandi said that the supply of chili from the harvest in South Sumatera, Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta, and other regions could become sources ahead of Ramadan.

Based on these calculations, Diarmita pointed out that there should be no price increase because there is sufficient stock. But the reality is quite different. The government's claim on the availability of basic commodities does not seem to undermine traders' intentions, especially retailers in traditional markets to raise the prices.

The price of one chicken in Kramat Jati Market, Jakarta slowly has moved up since last week and is expected to continue to increase until Idul Fitri. In Pasar Baru of Polewali Mandar, West Sulawesi, the basic commodity prices have even gone up over the last two weeks. The prices of some commodities in Inpres and Lhokseumawe markets also increase.

Generally, the cause of the price increase is that there is an increasing demand. However, sometimes the reasons for Indonesian traders to raise prices seem absurd. For example, prior to Lebaran Day, government employees and companies and workers usually receive a holiday allowance or bonus. So, this is considered fair if the traders take advantage of additional benefits as well.

The government needs to conduct market operations to ensure sufficient stock and the prices cannot be manipulated by the merchants, let alone make it as tradition.

Today in History over RRI World Service, Voice of Indonesia. We start from an event on May 17, 1950 when association of Indonesian publisher was established.

Association of Indonesian publisher was established on May 17, 1950 in Jakarta on initiative and agreement of some national publishers at that time. In additional to encouragement to replace foreign publishers’ position, especially the Dutch which still monopolized book publishing activities in the country, the establishment of Association of Indonesian publisher was also imbued with great desire to help the government in establishing brilliant Indonesian people. When the establishment of the association only consisted of 13 publishers, now the number of its members has reached around 650 publishers throughout Indonesia. According to the history, the association of Indonesian publisher  still exists as the only one book publisher organization which is able to fight and to serve various concerns of its members.

The next event is that in 1980, national library was established.

Indonesian National Library is located in Jakarta. It has a duty to store state’s data and information. The library is also one of government’s agencies’ non-department which is under and responsible to the president. Earlier, the library was one of the realizations of the implementation and development of the national system of the library as a whole and integrated since it was planned its establishment on May 17, 1980 by the then Minister of Education and Culture, Daoed Joesoef. The agency is the result of integration of the four major libraries in Jakarta.

And the last event is about National Book Day.

Determination of May 17 as National Book Day was the initiative of education minister of mutual cooperation cabinet, Abdul Malik Fadjar since 2002. The decision of National Book Day is hoped to be able to encourage reading interest of Indonesian people, as well as to increase book’s sales. The date was chosen based on the date of the establishment of Indonesian National Library on May 7, 1980. The commemoration of Book Day is often related to reading interest in Indonesia which is still low. From study data of 'Most Literate Nation in the World' which has been released by Central Connecticut State University in 2016, Indonesia ranked in the 60th from 61 countries. The position was under Thailand and above Bostwana. To grow love of book reading becomes challenge for every individual. However, National Book Day commemoration is able to give positive impact in making people aware about the importance of the book. Even, to enliven the day, some institutions such as National Library holds event and activities aiming to invite people to visit the library.
