This morning I visited the grave of my late kid brother Dody Lesmana at the Tanah Kusir cemetery which is located not far from my home.
It has been more than five years since the last time I went there and the place was not so different from before therefore I didn't find much difficulty in finding Dody's grave.
Afterward I went to the cemetery management office to extent the grave rent until November 2014 and was quite surprised to know that the rent was only Rp 80.000 per three years. I thought that it might be very high. In the past, this matter was handled by my late father and he never told me about the rent.
The situation at the cemetery was so quite because I was the only visitor there because it was still too early in the morning. Usually many people would go to cemetery 1-2 days before and during Hari Raya Eid Ul Fitr.
The quietness of the surrounding area has reminded of the fact that the cemetery is our final destination, it is the place where our body would lay down to rest forever. And we would never know when we will go there. So until then, we must do our very best in our life.
