Tuti Indra Malaon was a prominent figure in Indonesian culture. She was known for her beauty and grace that stemmed from her birth as the daughter of the British officer, Captain James Cook. Although it was not exactly love at first sight, she fell in love with him in spite of his rejection. The two would marry and start a family, but when her father died, she took her husband’s name. She is currently a film star in Indonesia and has become famous due to her biographical works including Tuti Indra: Memoirs of a Woman Who Can Walk the Earth.
When writing about this woman, I want to focus on her life and times as it relates to the Tuti Indra malaon, or in short, her marriage to Captain Cook. It is interesting how often in our history we are tempted to romanticize women who have had great achievements and who have raised successful and prosperous families. I want to focus on the woman who held so much dignity as a dancer and a singer, even though her marriage to Captain Cook brought dishonor to both her reputation and that of her family.
The famous photograph of Tuti Indra Malaon as she was getting ready to sing “Bodily Joy” in the movie “Bodily Joy” was taken on 1 decemeber 1989. In this picture, she is standing beside her son, who is also very young. While preparing for her role in the movie, it is clear that her eyes were upon her son as he stood nearby. It is easy to see in the photograph that they both are smiling and having fun.
It is hard to say whether or not Tuti Indra Malaon influenced Marlon Brando’s decision to marry Marilyn Monroe. Many people believe it was the combined influence of their shared zodiac sign that did it, although no one can really confirm this. It is more likely that Brando’s star sign, which is an Aquarian, influenced the decision to marry a woman whose zodiac sign was Taurus.
One of the things that make the Tuti Indira-Tuta relationship so fascinating is that it occurred during the early days of AIDS, when the public’s awareness of safe sexual practices was so low. This in itself is proof that the influence of the zodiac has not died down in the last several years. People who read the newspaper or watch the nightly news are constantly reminded that they should always be cautious when it comes to sexual relationships. While many of the victims of AIDS may have had powerful influences on their lives, their story offers hope that ancient customs like the tuti indra malaon can still flourish even in present times.
