The 'Tribute Conference', the final poem and some more pictures

Among the older people who came were also Djam'annuri, Syafa'atun,Mujiburrahman. Damami, Hilman Latief. The wife of Noorhaidi, Nurlelawati, had a nice presentation on the cases of mixed marriages in Shari'a Courts: one of the examples of excellent research, seeking facts and good interpretations.
Here we see Syafaatun al-Mirzanah and Mujiburrahman during the presentations of the second day. I was not in the mood to make precise notes. It will all be published later in a more polished way.
Here I restrict to the four stanza of the syair I wrote to conclude this conference:



Martin dan Karal lama mondar mandir
Minum teh di Yogya, kalau di Belanda suka bir
Di negeri panas kadang-kadang berzikir
Di Belanda mungkin mirip kaum kafir

Martin dan Karel senang dengan mahasiswanya
Seolah mereka sudah bagian keluarganya
Biasa manis dan sabar untuk membimbingnya
Tapi sedih malah marah kalau janji ditinggalkannya

Martin dan Karel sudah sering menguji
Baca paper, dengan potlot merah mengoreksi
Kali ini lain: yang jadi materi justru mereka sendiri
Tetapi hasilnya baik: hanya diberi puji

Martin dan Karel sering menduga: inilah terakhir kali
Mungkin tidak pernah ke Indonesia lagi kembali
Sampai sekarang toh datang, walaupun capai
Datang mungkin terus sampai dunia lalai 
Fredrik Doeka had come all the way from Kupang (here first on the right, with jacket in NTT style, from Alor like my own shirt). The three ladies in front are from right Lies Marcoes, Nurlelawati, Syafa'atun.
A wonderful experience, thank you all for this happening.
