     100 million rupiah 

          An Indonesian businessman plans to throw 100 million rupiah ( US$ 10,600) out of an airplane over the capital this Sunday as a publicity stunt to promote his new book. “I want to create a rain of money in Jakarta,” author and motivator speaker Tung Desem Waringi said, “it’s a little bit crazy, but it marketing.” Police spokesman Col l Ketut Untung said authorities may not allow the plan to go forward because it could draw huge crowds and cause chaos. Ten of millions of Indonesians live on less than US$1 a day and food and aid give aways always draw large numbers. The 42-year-old Tung said instead of opting for regular advertising for his book, he came up with an idea that “will make people happy.”
