Rice in life and history

By

One of the things that interests me about the coming Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) integration is a change in the look of our money. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas recently released brightly colored updated bills known as the New Generation Currency, which are in circulation now with some of the old designs. These notes carry the same faces on the front, except that the faces now look younger; some of them even smile: Quezon, Osmeña, Roxas, Macapagal, Cory and Ninoy, Abad Santos, Lim and Escoda. On the reverse you have an assortment of Philippine animals, fish and natural wonders. When the Asean gets its act together and integrates, will we, like the European Union, create a common currency? What will it look like?

The nation commemorates two historical events this month: the 116th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine independence on June 12 and the 153rd birth anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal Thursday, June 19. The saga of Philippine nationhood connects the two with Rizal at the racial center.
