After listening to one by one complaint from every citizen who come to his house, ranging from the price of basic necessities that are still high to the concerns of citizens will rise and the scarcity of subsidized 3G LPG, Rizal Ramli-racked his past so bitter.

"I know my father and mother's discomfort, because I have experienced it, I have been living independently since I was 6 years old because of orphanage I fulfill my daily needs, to be able to continue my studies, to continue my study at ITB must work as a foreman in a printing office in Kebayoran area, Jakarta, "Rizal said to the residents who are very enthusiastic about listening.

Not forgetting Rizal Ramli also invites residents to his office in turn. In his office, Rizal Ramli shows a painting of a friend who inspired him to fight for the fate of the Indonesian people. Rizal Ramli shows a picture of a small child wrapped in red and white.
