In these modern times, education, science and knowledge have become an absolute necessity for every human being. Himne Sekolah or School Hymnsmakes a strong statement about the importance of schools in fulfilling this human need and advocates for greater care and attention to be paid to schools and the education system.
The painting depicts a pianist and a choir trying to create harmony in an environment that seems unorganised. With this work, Mr Y. Indra says he wants to encourage society to voice out openly the problems that exist in education and to work together to solve them. In his vision, different voices come together to create a single song of beauty that for him represents the ultimate destination for a nation.
