The pres­ti­gious Bin­tang Ma­ha­pu­tra award goes to Dato’ Sri Prof. Dr Tahir MBA and Gusti Ratu He­mas

As part of Indonesia’s 73rd In­de­pen­dence Day cel­e­bra­tions, Pres­i­dent Joko “Jokowi” Wi­dodo pre­sented hon­orary awards to eight prom­i­nent fig­ures for their dis­tin­guished ser­vice to the coun­try on Au­gust 14. Gusti Kan­jeng Ratu He­mas, Queen Con­sort of the King­dom of Yo­gyakarta and the for­mer Deputy Speaker for the Re­gional Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil, was named as a re­cip­i­ent of the Bin­tang Ma­ha­pu­tra Utama award.

Mean­while, phi­lan­thropist Dato’ Sri Prof. Dr Tahir MBA earned the Ma­ha­pu­tra Nararya award in recog­ni­tion of his par­tic­i­pa­tion in fields ben­e­fi­cial to the progress, well­ness, and pros­per­ity of the na­tion. For their dis­tin­guished ser­vices pro­mot­ing the arts and cul­ture, the late R.J. Katamsi, artist and founderof ASRI Indonesia’s first art acad­emy, and Prof. Dr R.M. Soedar­sono, a dancer, chore­og­ra­pher, and aca­demic, also both re­ceived the Bin­tang Bu­daya Parama Dharma award. These are truly de­serv­ing awards for those who re­ceived them.
