Adithya Prakoso is perhaps the greatest Che Guevara fan in the city of Bandung in Indonesia who claims that not only the nation of Cuba but the entire Latin America and the world as a whole would be a better place if Che Guevara lived longer. I personally believe that the argument can even go against Adithya’s personal belief that the world could have been a worst place instead as for anyone who has read Che Guevara thoroughly knows that he was a narrow-minded and stubborn man and today’s society is not meant for such leaders. We need broad-minded, un-opinionated gentlemen leaders.
Adithya also claims that the monument of Che Guevara in La Higuera is the epitome of world drama as it was a Bolivian chief who ordered the murder of Che Guevara and now the same country depicts him as their hero. He further adds that no matter how many monuments they build for him and how much the government of Bolivia claims to love him, we all know that it is a drama but one thing cannot be denied that the common and honest people of Bolivia love the man called Che Guevara and they will keep on loving him. He claims that Che is not a man who can be hated by an intelligent, generous and honest person and the men and women of Bolivia are full of these qualities.
Adithya doesn’t deny the claim that Che Guevara had a Robespierre mentality but he rather claims that it was necessary for him to have such a mentality in order to achieve his mission of making the world a better place, especially for the poor and the unprivileged.
Adithya is even a bigger fan of the ISBI Bandung graduate freethinker – Bayu Angora. He even has a poem of his as his phone’s ringtone.
