BUFFALO, A GOOD HEART

BUFFALO, A GOOD HEART

What's in your shadow - when you hear the word ngangon? Or do you not even know or have never heard the word angon? OK. Ngangon, is a Javanese language that means to shepherd. The photo above shows a person being shepherding the buffalo. Buffaloes become a protected property, because buffaloes are always used to plow or cultivate paddy fields before being planted with rice seedlings. Although the buffalo is now replaced with a machine, but until now there are still villagers who maintain traditional ways of cultivating rice fields.
