Frankly, one word that really make the soul sick after arriving in Japan two years ago was: GAMBARU aka struggle to the death. Really fed up, I swear, because every time guidance as a professor, he will always use the closing words: motto gambattekudasai (let's fight over again), taihen dakedo, isshoni gambarimashoo (I know it's hard, but let's fight together), motto motto kenkyuu shitekudasai (Come on over and over again buatpenelitian). Until I feel like talking, what no other vocabulary than GAMBARU? Then what, is important not gambaru.
Gambaru was not just fighting mediocre or lazy that if there are many obstacles, yahhh I've done ... stop it. According to Japanese dictionary hell, gambaru it means: "doko made mo shite nintai doryoku Suru" (Last up everywhere as well and tried it out) Gambaru itself, composed of two characters ie characters "hard" and "tightening". So the image that can be obtained from the alloy of this character is "whatever it would sesusah problems faced, hard and we must continue to tighten ourselves, so that we can triumph over matter " (Meaning do not be spoiled, but atidakp all it is a fairness issue in life, his name alive emang basically hard, so do not ngarep easy, a matter of life can only be faced with gambaru, period.). Frankly, my two years in Japan, two years I also do not understand, why these Japanese people make gambaru as his philosophy.
Even 3 year olds like Joanna had been told to gambaru at his school, like wearing winter clothes in a thin layer should not let the spoiled against cold weather, in the schools should not wear socks because when your feet hit the floor directly was good for health, sick if only a runny nose or fever 37 dersajat unnecessary skipping school, still encouraged in from morning till evening, with reason, the child will be strong to face the disease if he fought the disease itself.
Consequently, if the ramp while riding a bicycle ride on a bicycle Joanna, and I'm tired, Joanna automatic way: Mama, gambare! Faitoooo Mama! (Mama let's fight, mama let's fight!).Just do not spoiled the same problem deh, gambaru until the death it's a must!

I actually just started a little to understand why this is important gambaru once in life, is following the tsunami and earthquakes with the power of 9.0 in eastern Japan. I know, natural disasters like the tsunami in Indonesia Aceh, Nias and surrounding areas, an earthquake in the wilderness, Mount Merapi eruption also .... it is not easy to faced.
But, the tsunami and earthquake in japan this time, far worse than all that.In fact, this is an earthquake and tsunami worst and largest in the world. Naturally, once when then Japanese government and society panic confusion because of this disaster. Naturally, once when they later began to feel upset, cry, do not know what to do.
Even for a disaster on this scale, it could be "forgiven" if the TV stations put a little background music ebiet style songs and create video clips that contain the crying child country faces-filled disaster victims heartache and hopeless blank stares. what does not, the tsunami and this earthquake is really sweeping out the entire lives they have. It is natural that then they have no hope.
But what happens after this terrible disaster? From the first day of the disaster, I nyetel TV and waiting for the songs ebiet style played on TV stations. Nyari-nyari also where the wallet account of natural disasters. Video clips of children crying country also I've been waiting for. Three elements of it (ala ebiet song, disaster wallet accounts, video clips crying child country), the same was not broadcast on TV.

So that is going on then? This is what I see broadcast on TV JAPAN station:
 1. Warning the government for every citizen to remain vigilant 
 2. Urge the government to all citizens of Japanese shoulder to shoulder to face the disaster (including a request to save electricity for citizens of Tokyo and the Tohoku region not long exposed to lights off) 
 3. An apology from the government because it had to do a planned power cut 
 4. These tips deal with natural disasters 
 5. Call center phone number of natural disasters can be contacted 24 hours 
 6. Shipping SAR teams from each prefecture to the areas affected 
 7. Portrait of citizens and government work together to save the residents affected by disasters (Spry oath once, lives in Japan is really worth very much). 
 8. Encouragement from the government that was delivered with calm and unemotional style: let's fight 
 9. same face of disaster, let's face (government official said norikoeru use, which if translated literally: to climb and pass) with all my heart
 10. Portrait of the citizens affected by the disaster, the mutual encouragement: "There are nyari his wife, yet ketemu2, his face was troubled at all, but remain calm and not emotional, encouraged nenek2 existing refugee place: gambatte sagasoo! mitsukaru kitto kara.Akiramenai de (let's go find a wife struggling you. Surely met. Do not give up). "

The writing on twitter: this greatest earthquake in history. Therefore, we must give the greatest effort and love to be able to pass through this disaster; Dark once in Sendai, and then there was one bright spot visible star. That's a very beautiful star. Residents Sendai, look up.
As an Indonesian who had never seen a la gambaru way disaster like this, I really feel embarrassed and at the same time: once the same admiration and respect of citizens and the Japanese government. This country extraordinary country that once limited natural resource, natural country hard, but could go beyond strong as usual and have a mental bsaja, because: its philosophy gambaru it. You could say, Japanese people are not have nothing but GAMBARU. And, gambaru was more than enough to deal with all problems in life.
absolutely right, we must pray, we must surrender to the Lord. Only, mental nothing "blame" God, This says all his will, God was angry with His people, God was angry over then ask the natural grass who sway ..... ohh my God.
I guarantee you 100 percent, as long as this mentality that dwells within us, until the end though, I think our nation will not be able to move forward. if traced further, often "blame" God for all disasters and problems of life, is actually another word for not dare to be responsible for a given life The owner of Life. If clarified again, not daring to charge the point: running from the problem, do not want face the problem, playing one to blame, do not want to fight and new obstacles have been met little spoiled cry.
About a year ago, there are relatives who question, to what I was studying in Japan. Why to Japan, it is useless, if you want to S2 or S3 house, yes in Europe or America and gentlemen, if the Japanese so big. So said he. 

She thought it would also words, yes, yes, if you want to go international ya supposed to America or Europe and gentlemen, instead of this japanese. Yet equally asia, also a small country and if the Japanese can not, will not be able to survive in here. As was sorry too, why I studied Japanese literature and not literature english or western literature other.
But now, I can say with confidence the same family who claim there is no point in me demanded science japan. His statement is completely false. Mental gambaru holding it the most is Japan. And make a mental gambaru as way of life is more valuable than go international and the like that. True, Japanese literature, gender and the like, can be learned anywhere. But the fighting spirit and mental still fighting it out let there is no way, I think, one ideal place to understand all of it is in Japanese. And I am grateful to be here, right now.
So, starting today, if I hear the word gambaru, whether on campus, in malls, on TV commercials, in supermarkets, joanna school or wherever, I will no longer feel sick of body and soul.
Instead, I would humbly say: Indonesia jin ni watashi no gambaru no seishin to imi wo oshietekudasatte, kokoro kara Kansha itashimasu. Nihon jin no minasan no yoo ni, gambaru seishin wo mi ni tsukeraremasu yoo ni, Hibi gambatteikitai to omoimasu. (I thank you from the bottom of my heart for having teach the meaning and mental gambaru for me, an Indonesian. I will fight every day, for mental gambaru pervasive in me, like you all, the people of Japan).
