    ith Indian cinema celebrating its glorious 100 years, Bollywood seems to be charged up for the event. Renowned lyricist Prasoon Joshi has written a centenary anthem for the Indian cinema, which was sung on the occasion of IIFA Awards in Singapore this year. “The anthem celebrates 100 years of Indian Cinema,” Joshi told mediapersons. The IIFA Awards were held in Singapore from June 7 to June 9. At the IIFA Rocks event, a music and fashion night, veteran singers Hariharan and Usha Uthup, along with composer Lesle Lewis, paid a humble tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema by recomposing and performing some of the timeless hits of different eras. . The night was organised as part of the 13th International Indian Film Academy weekend and awards function. The trio recreated the golden era by starting with songs from the 1950s and 1960s and moved on to the ones in the modern times. Lewis kicked off the performance with popular song Hawa mein udta jaye from 1949 film Barsaat and Eena Meena Deeka song from 1957 film Asha.

    The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands in the South China Sea located between Taiwan to the north and Borneo to the south. Just 2,000 of its islands are inhabited and only 500 are larger than a kilometer square. The nine largest islands of Luzon, Mindanao, Palawan, Panay, Mindoro, Samar, Negros, Leyte and Cebu make up 90% of the nation's land area. The Philippines is mountainous in nature. The highest mountain is Mt. Apo, which is located in Mindanao. The second largest is Mt.Pulog in Luzon. There are recorded 50 volcanoes and most of them are still active. The most famous is Mt. Mayon, known as the world's most perfect cone. One can find here the lowest volcano in the world, called Taal Volcano (History of the Philippines 1). The country has only a few rivers and they abound in small mountains streams, which swell up as much as three times their size during the rainy season. The climate of the Philippines is divided mainly in two seasons: the dry season and the rainy season. The cool dry season extends from December to February and is followed by the hot dry season that is from March to May. The rainy season begins in June and continues to November.

    The Development of the Philippines and of Japan.—In many ways the next decade of the history of the Philippine Islands may resemble the splendid development of the neighboring country of Japan. Both countries have in past times been isolated more or less from the life and thought of the modern world. Both are now open to the full current of human affairs. Both countries promise to play an important part in the politics and commerce of[10]the Far East. Geographically, the Philippines occupy the more central and influential position, and the success of the institutions of the Philippines may react upon the countries of southeastern Asia and Malaysia, to an extent that we cannot appreciate or foresee, Japan, by reason of her larger population, the greater industry of her people, a more orderly social life, and devoted public spirit, is at the present time far in the lead.…
