The song of Gundul-Gundul Pacul suddenly heaved at the Alamanda room of Aryaduta Hotel. It was followed by the local song of Makassar—Anging Mammiri. Well, that’s the way the Director General of PAUDNI of Education and Culture Ministry, Prof. Dr. Lydia Freyani Hawadi, PSi, encouraged the meeting attendees of Socialization of PAUD Program Cooperation at Aryaduta Hotel, on Wednesday (7/3). 
According to Prof. Lydia, Gundul-Gundul Pacul song has very deep meaning. Hair, for example, represents the crown, whereas pacul symbolizes the farmer. Thus, it represents our willingness to commit and attempt to improve people’s prosperity. 
Prof. Lydia admitted that two weeks ago she was appointed to be positioned as Directorate General of PAUDNI. She described the cooperation made by and with TNI (Armed Forces) to develop early childhood education in the outer islands.
“We have made an agreement with TNI regarding the management of early childhood education in 15 points in Indonesia particularly in the outer islands,” said Prof. Lydia. 
Lydia who is also the Professor of Psychology of UI (University of Indonesia) also talked about how much less fortunate the children in rural areas compared to those who live in the city. Children in the city still get good quality books even can access learning materials through internet while those in the countryside could not get it.
Prof. Lydia suggested “to those involved in early childhood education, please give books which have pictures because in practice it was found many educational providers such as PKBM haven’t given them yet. In that meeting, Prof. Lydia checked the meeting attendees. ”Where is institute courses? HIMPAUDI? PKK?” asked Prof. Lydia while noticing the audience crowding the Alamanda Room of Aryaduta Hotel.
