Interrupted Journey to Paradise. Six Bali Residents Die in Crash of MH 17 Shot Down Over Ukraine. (7/20/2014)

Shot down by a Russian-made missile over Ukrainian airspace on Thursday, July 17, 2014, counted 6 people who made their homes in Bali among the manifest of 298 murdered crew and passengers.

Balidiscovery.com and Bali Updateextends its condolences to the families and friends of all those who lost their lives in the downing ofMH17.

People from Bali confirmed among dead are:

  • Yodricunda Theistiasih, her husband Arnoud Huizen and their infant daughter Yelena Clarice Huizen. Originally from Ambon, Yodricunda moved to Bali in the late 1990s and worked at a hotel in Bali. In Bali she met and married Dutchman Arnoud Huizen. The two were returning from Holland with their 2-year-old daughter after a 3-week visit during which they processed Dutch citizenship for the child. Arnoud Huizen taught language in Kuta to Indonesian school children. The young family made their home in Bali in the Denpasar suburb of Dalung.
  • Ketut Wiartini (33), originally from Kubutambahan in North Bali, but who lived in Holland for the past 14 years. Divorced from her Dutch husband, Wiartini was returning to Bali to visit family. She leave behind a 13-year-old son Gita Trian Welianda Putu Wiegle in Holland.
  • Benoit Chardome, originally from Belgium, moved to Bali 6 years ago from New Zealand where he operated a number of restaurants. Most recently Benoit worked as the manager of the Canggu Club. He had travelled to Europe to marry his Indonesian partner, who was not on board the ill-fated MH17 flight back to Asia.
  • Wayan Sujana (24) from Gerokgak in North Bali, had been invited by Chardome as a guest at the wedding. Sujana had spent  nearly a month touring Europe. Sujana, a final year student in a local tourism economy, owned a small, successful spa that provided an income to his family.

Bali – the Island and its people - are deeply spiritual.

News carried by NusaBali underlines this deep spirituality with news precipitated by the tragic loss of MH17, shot down from the skies over the Ukraine.

On board that flight was a 24-year-old Balinese man, I Wayan Sujana, who was on his way back to Bali after attending the wedding of friends in Belgium when his life was tragically cut short. A self-made man coming from the most humble of economic circumstances in North Bali, Sujana was the backbone and future hope of his family distinguishing himself as a scholar and entrepreneur at an early age.

In accordance with Balinese belief that the souls of the dead are in danger of roaming aimlessly in another dimension unless prescribed prayers and rituals are performed that will guide the dead and leading them to the final disposition of their remains in a manner that will guarantee a safe and continuing journey of the soul.

Sujana’s family have had no news from the war zone where the plane fell or from Malaysian Airline regarding their brother and son’s body, clarifying if Wayan’s body has been found and identified.

In an atmosphere of urgency, ceremonies were conducted in the man’s home village of Pejarakan on Saturday, July 19 - little more than one day after the plane fell. Conducted by Balinese priests adept at communicating with the spirit world, a Nebusin ceremony was help to help guide the young man’s soul and body back to his home and family temple. 

Held on Saturday morning, the spiritualist spoke to Wayan who spoke through medium saying in Balinese “I’m confused. Confused. Where am I? It’s so hot here.”

Wayan’s father, I Ketut Ginastra, prays that his son’s remains, regardless of their state, are quickly returned to Bali to permit prayers and a cremation seen as essential to permit Wayan’s restful repose and the continuing journey of his soul.

Malaysian authorities have asked the family to provide DNA evidence to aid in the identification of Wayan’s remains and also asked the family to prepare for a flight to Kuala Lumpur that will serve as the receptive center for human remains once they are made available by Ukrainian officials.

The family learned of their son’s death in the early hours of Friday, July 18th when a neighbor and friend of Wayan awoke the family to share the tragic news regarding the crash being broadcast by the international media. See more - balidiscovery.com
