Time flies It looks as if it was yesterday that I assumed office of the President of Indian Society of Periodontology. Already time has come to bid adieu. When my team assumed office, we had set few feasible and practical goals for the year. I am happy that those goals have been achieved to a greater extent and the year has been fruitful. One of the goals was to popularize periodontics among general practitioners. To achieve this, ISP-IDA summit was conducted at Jaipur, which was a grand success. Result of this submit was that IDA head office has come forward to provide 2 h in every state IDA conference to ISP for educating general practitioners in various aspects of periodontics and I am extremely thankful to IDA for this kind gesture. Another important goal was to train the periodontal teachers in teaching and learning methodology in order to improve pedagogical skills. Two TOT programs, one in Udaipur in the month of July and another in Manipal in month of September, were successfully conducted and appreciated by one and all. Our third objective was to bring industry and our profession together for the promotion of oral and periodontal health. Our efforts in this direction have resulted in "current opinion in the management of biofilm" lecture series in 100 dental colleges in different parts of the country. Efforts were also made to conduct orientation programs for the fresh postgraduate students in periodontics and to establish relationship with international periodontal society. Spade work had been done for orientation program. However, programs could not be conducted this year due to lack of time. In future, it is going to be a regular annual program.

Journal Editor Dr. Ashish Nichani has done an excellent job. ISP journal has not only changed shape, but also grown in terms of number of pages and copies and set to scale new heights in future.

I take this opportunity to thank Dr. Balaji Manohar, Honorary Secretary, for his relentless efforts in achieving our goals.

ISP has to go a long way and many more goals are to be achieved. I will be handing over the baton to young and dynamic Dr. Santosh Sridar who is known for his organizing skills. I am sure that ISP will scale new heights under his leadership. I wish the new team a successful and rewarding year.

I take this opportunity to thank all the office bearers, EC members, and all of you for your cooperation and making my tenure fruitful and meaningful.
