Litratong Pinoy # 120 : Publiko (public)


May isang pagkakataon na nabansagang “Pila-pinas” ang ating bansa dahil sa lahat ng pampublikong gawain, may pila. Pila sa Lotto, sa bigas, sa tubig at syempre pila sa pag sakay, sa bus, barko o eroplano. Ang pag pila ay ginagawa para maayos ang daloy ng lahat.

Ang nasa litrato ay ang maayos na pagpila ng publiko sa “boarding gate” sa paliparan bago sumakay sa pampublikong eroplano.

English Translation:

There was a time that our country was called “Pila-pinas” due to the fact that in every public event, there is a line of people. A line for a Lotto outlet, in buying rice, fetching a water from a public well/water source and of course, a line before boarding a bus, ship or an airplane. Falling in line is a done for us to have a system of order.

"Pilipinas" is the local name of the Philippines. Pila-pinas was coined from: "pila" means to fall in line; and "-pinas" the last sylable of "Pilipinas"

In the photo is an orderly line of people in an airport boarding gate before boarding a commercial airplane/flight.
