Chapter Summary

The author says he would explode with anger when he saw Papuans receiving treatment that was unfit for human beings. In fact, he was almost fired as a civil servant by the governor of Netherlands New Guinea for opposing treatments he considered highly discriminatory. The author narrates an incident in which the Arso district head, who was a Papuan descent, was not offered a chair by the head assistant administrator who was of Ambonese descent, and the district head was left to remain standing as he delivered his report orally. In each district where the author was on duty as a civil servant, a paramedic was also placed. In every village he visited in doing his duties as a civil servant, the paramedic opened a polyclinic in keeping with his duties in the area of health, and this way of working applied on every official trip.
