Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review
Anybody driving past Century 25 in Union Landing last Tuesday, they would have seen the mass of people waiting in excitement to see the newest movie in the Harry Potter series.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was long awaited, seeing as the original release date was supposed to be in November of 2008, but it was worth the wait. There were seven showings of the film that night, from midnight to 12:30, all of which were sold out long before the premier.

Bal Gangadhar Tilak, 23 July 1856 –1 August 1920 (aged 64), was an Indian nationalist, teacher, social reformer and independence fighter who was the first popular leader of the Indian Independence Movement. The British colonial authorities derogatorily called him the "Father of the Indian unrest". He was also conferred upon the honorary title of "Lokmanya", which literally means "Accepted by the people (as their leader)".
Tilak was one of the first and strongest advocates of "Swaraj" (self rule) in Indian consciousness. His famous quote, "Swaraj is my birthright, and I shall have it !" is well-remembered in India even today.
