Orphans Ripe by Life’s Trials

This edition explores the story of the birth of the boy Lola Parikesit. The word “Lola” is found in the New Javanese language, which means a child who grows and develops without being accompanied by one or both of his biological parents.

The terms “Lola, alola” or “lolita” have been found in Old Javanese and Middle Javanese, which are absorption words from Sanskrit, but the meaning is: uneasy, restless, running to and fro, rocking, jiggling, shaking, or longing (Zoetmulder, 1995: 607).

Meaning is more like the psychological impact of the condition of Lola (fatherless, no thousand, or both). Feeling homesick for example often occurs in “Lola” children. So it is with feelings of anxiety or uneasiness, often moving on the Lola boy. In fact, because of motherlessness, the Lola boy is adrift alone in the face of the turmoil of life.

Given the psychological impact on the “Lola boy”, all religions are instructed to be compassionate, or a helping hand to a child who is “Lola”. In Islam, the terminology for him is: (a) the word “orphan” for children who are “father Lola”, (b) the word “strays” for children who are “mother Lola”, and (c) the word “orphans” for children the “Lola’s father and Lola’s mother”.

There is a status of “Lola” which befell the child after some time of his birth, but there is also a child who has Lola before his birth, precisely “father’s Lola” because his biological father died when the child concerned was in the mother’s womb. Parikesit is an example of a child who is “Lola’s father” from his mother’s womb.

Parikshit “Lola Father” from the womb

Abhimanyu died when his wife (Utari) was heavily pregnant. Thus, the only son of Abhimanyu, namely Parikesit, was born after his death. His “only” existence was not only because Parikshit was the only son of Abhimanyu, but also the only descendant of the Pandawa dynasty who survived after the Bharatayuddha War and after a heavy march by a large member of the Pandava family to Swargga (nirvana) who in the 18th parwa, Swargorohanaparwa, is narrated as a climb to the summit of Meru (the name of the arhais for “Himalayas”).
