Abstract: Inheritance law in Indonesia still has pluralistic characteristic. Besides the civil inheritance law, there are also the Islamic inheritance law and the Adat (customary) inheritance law. The pluralistic inheritance laws in Indonesia have the impact on land right transfer, based on inheritance. Registering Land Right Transfer, based on SKAW (Certificate of Heirs), is an absolute requirement for the registration in the Land Office. It seems that SKAW is still based on ethnic groupings as it is stipulated in Article 163 IS and Article 131 IS as they are regulated in Article 42 of PP (Government Regulation)..............

Authors : Dilara M
: 10.9790/0837-2208016972      logo

Abstract: Pain oozed out of their words. It was not ink with which they wrote but blood, their own blood. They were deprived of hopes and dreams in a man's world. Forced to stay apart, they decided not to spend their time for tears but words. Powerful words rolled down their cheeks giving birth to lines which carried meanings boundless. Such were the poems written by Sylvia Plath and Kamala Das. They were frank enough to reveal their self as it is, unwilling to cover up their emotions and feelings which were a taboo in a male controlled- male dominated society. Confessional poetry always.............
