the sun sets in the East?

A workshop wonders if Javanese literature is dying off due to a lack of interest from the kids.

'Beni Satya, an author from Jakarta, proposed a breakthrough in making Javanese literature more acceptable among today's society.

"It's no longer time to rely just on written Javanese," he pointed out.

To make the Javanese language more publicly acceptable, he added, literature must be supported by trendy media that society can easily access, such as stage and art performances.

"Indeed, these don't constitute literature, but this is my proposed strategy to make the language gain a greater foothold in society," he told the forum."

As long as everyone knows that Hollywood is no longer capable of telling coherent stories without books, okay?
