An Interview with Prof. Pratikno
It would be unwise of me not to post this entry:) I mean...we prepared all the troubles of going downtown just to be in the forum, more than that...we squeezed our time just to meet Prof. Pratikno (rector of my almamater, Gadjah Mada University) who happened to be one of the presenters at ASEAN Forum held by KISEAS (Korean Institute of Southeast Asian Studies)
Actually it was supposed to be the task of Mr. Manna who usually do the interviewing with the notable figures who come to Korea for any specific purposes be it on academic, social, economic, political, or any agenda in mind.^^
So, being in his shoes was like having to cramp my mind as what to do and think of as I got to come up with questions after questions so as not to look 'dumb' vis a vis a prominent figure like Prof. Praktikno.
Oh, one more thing, it turned out that Seoul (Korea) is not an unfamiliar city (country) after all. It's his fifth visit!!!
Welcome back, Prof. Pratikno.
