On the Indonesian island of Belitong, young Ikal and his friends attend the local village school through thunderstorm or blistering heat. There are only ten students but, under the guidance of teacher Bu Mus, they develop a love of learning and form aspirations for their lives far removed from the cycles of poverty in which they live.
it's ok, Rina. Are you ready to go to the library right now?
Waalaikumsalam.. Hey Sasa, sorry waiting for me.
The title is Rainbow Troops, it is one of popular book in Indonesia that was made a film.
at the library, I would like to show you an interesting book by Andrea Hirata.
Oh really? what the title is?
Wow... what an interesting book!
which one the book is?
So then, let tell me about that book!
Wait a minute... yeah! I get it.
Ok. I will tell you. Let's get a sit.
Tiny, brilliant, Lintang, who must cycle over 80 kilometres a day through crocodile-infested swamps to reach school, aims to become Belitong’s first mathematician; Ikal longs to become a writer or a star badminton player.
ohh... An interesting story.
Yes, I think so. I really like this book.
Ikal and his friends are the Rainbow Troops, bonded by their commitment to the tiny school and the fight to keep it open in the face of corrupt ministerial officials and the nearby mine that will stop at nothing to dredge through the tin-rich land upon which the school lies.
wow... I think it is a great book. Because it motivates us to be a strong people and never give up in bad conditions or situations
