Gadis Kecil Penjaga Bintang
by Wikan Satriati

Language: Indonesian

The Star’s Caretaker

“What is that place?” asked the young girl who was sat nestled in the curve of the crescent moon.

“That’s a place for used parents,” Moon replied.

“Used parents”? Because the young girl didn’t understand, the Moon lowered her to the place about which she had inquired. There the young girl was astounded to see on a weather beaten signpost on which faded letters spelled out “Dwelling Place for Used Parents.”

The young girl felt a sudden pang of sadness. “What does that mean?” she asked the Moon.

“It means that there’s no use for them anymore,” the Moon said to the young girl. “It means they no longer have a daughter like you, a child who can pray for their well being when they go bed. Their children no longer have any use for them and have discarded them in the same way they would discard a toy they were tired of playing with.”


Because of the story her mother had told her made Putri wanted to say a prayer for her parents every night before she went to bed. Six other stories in The Moon’s Caretaker (Gadis Kecil Penjaga Bintang) convey a similar message—the hope that children learn to pray and be pleased when doing so; that prayer reveals concern, the desire to realize ones hopes, and the will to do good things in life. All are lovely messages to be conveyed to God.
