JAKARTA President Suharto is known as a serious figure and rarely jokes. His actions made the general public nervous with Suharto. He will speak when there is something important or something urgent. It's different if you look at Suharto from the glasses of his family and neighbors.
Suharto is a warm and close figure to children. All of this is evidenced by Suharto's work who does not reject his neighbor's trust in holding the position of 'important' Chairman of the Neighborhood Association (RT).
Suharto's figure is widely known to people as a quiet and serious figure. Not many people, especially officials, can get to know Suharto directly. Suharto has presented this condition since the Revolutionary era.
He is known as a fighter who is firm and serious. He is not a figure who talks a lot like most people. He spoke as necessary. However, a different view was revealed by his family and the immediate environment.
They think Suharto is a warm and loving figure. Especially when Suharto married and had six children. Three men and three women. This condition made Suharto a warm figure.
He did not want to lose much momentum raising his child. Because, he has aspirations to raise his children well. He is ready to attend every important moment of his children. From graduation to marriage.
His children were then directed to grow by maintaining character. Suharto also taught his children to be close to anyone. His children are asked not to discriminate between someone.
To educate them in such a way that they also become pious people, who believe in God. My understanding, piety, faith in God is always doing good. Good for himself, for his family, and others.
I equip my family with character. Then by telling me. I put more emphasis on it than equipping them with property. Nothing among my children that I wear, which I spoiled. Nothing! And thank God, until now no one has been adventurous and so on. Moreover, it is affected by crime or by narcotics," explained Suharto as written by G. Dwipayana and Ramadhan KH in Suharto's book: Mind, Speech, and Action I (1989).
The figure of the warm President Suharto is not only felt by his family. Suharto was also known to be warm by his neighbors when he was still living on Jalan H. Agus Salim, Menteng, Central Jakarta. This closeness made all residents choose Suharto, who at that time was already a high-ranking military officer as the head of the RT.
Suharto accepted the position with the mandate. He often invites his citizens to maintain cleanliness. He also perpetuates the variety of community service every Sunday. The community service is to clean sewers to parks.
It is this routine agenda that adds to the closeness of Suharto and the residents. Therefore, the routine cleaning agenda made other neighbors know each other and are familiar with each other. Suharto's children were also splashed in manfaaat.
Her children, especially Siti Hediati Hariyadi, said that she had known her neighbors well because of her community service. Because, every community service is held by a woman who is familiarly called Titiek Soeharto participates with her sister and sister.
After that, Suharto will take his children to walk and eat somewhere. The activity is routinely perpetuated every Sunday. However, these routine activities were no longer held when Suharto became President of Indonesia and their families moved to Jalan Cendana. Most of Suharto's time began to run for the nation and state.
"In my childhood, before you became president, we lived on Jalan H. Agus Salim, Central Jakarta. Our house is right in front of the roundabout. As the head of the RT every Sunday, you invite our family to work together with residents to clean the environment, be it sewers, parks, or the house case so that we and neighbors know each other well."
"Usually after the community service, you take us with you and our families to the City area to eat Bakmi Pinangsia, the Kelinci Alley, or fish porridge. That's how you take the time to entertain us with your family. And that's how I feel as the luxury and happiness that I remember until now," explained Titiek Suharto in Pak Harto's book: The Untold Stories (2011).
