Dear friends,

Wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year. It is nice to see post graduate students guided by young and enthusiastic post graduate teachers presenting many scientific papers in national conferences.

The postgraduate curriculum should include guidelines for writing scientific papers and all the teaching staff should actively involve themselves in reporting interesting cases. This is in view of the dismal number of articles received by the editorial office of JOMFP in spite of numerous papers being presented at the annual conferences.

It is disheartening to note that in a country like ours with nearly one third of the global population, there is no large scale study about the incidence of any particular disease since the review of premalignant lesions in the yesteryears by Pindborg JJ and Mehta FS, to name a few. The so called incidence and prevalence of oral diseases as learnt by us or as being taught to the students are based on the western population, which are totally irrelevant to our genetic make up and environmental setup. We should thus engage ourselves to carry out large scale population studies on the presentation of various oral diseases in our country.

In our quest to improve the standard of our journal, we have published colour illustrations in this edition. Further, sections to discuss diverse and interesting histopathologic appearances have been added (Know this field/Discuss this case). The section 'Living legends' on the stalwarts of oral pathology in our country refreshes the younger minds of their contributions to our speciality.

With warm regards
