BECAK, TRANSPORTATION TOOLS SHOULD BE PROTECTED

BECAK, TRANSPORTATION TOOLS SHOULD BE PROTECTED

Seen in the photo there are two tourists are enjoying the journey by means of transportation of the becak in Yogyakarta city of Indonesia. For me this is a good moment, because the means of transportation are few and rare. Becak (Hokkien language: be chia = carriage) is believed to have been born in Japan around 1769, when a young American missionary in Japan named Jonathan Scobie intends to create a walking aid for his disabled wife (the most accurate version of some theories). In its development, this mode is called sedan-chair or pull-rickshaw, which in Japanese is called JINRIKISHA. The rickshaw then reached the ears of the nobility in China and became a prima donna until the 1870s. The city of Yogyakarta Indonesia is currently the city with the largest becak population in Indonesia. Although many say that the pedicab will never disappear from the civilization of Yogyakarta until whenever, but that does not necessarily mean that the heyday will return. Becak that was born as the language of love is now more silent. Watching humans change their lives slowly. Worldly things are nothing immutable in this life
