We cannot advance without new experiments in living, but no wise man tries every day what he has proved wrong the day before.

- James Truslow Adams

The annual event of the Indian Society of Periodontology, the national conference at Shimla, saw more than 1200 members participating in it. I take this opportunity to congratulate Dr. A. S. Gill, Dr. Ashish Jain, and their team for organizing this event in the hills, providing us with an array of renowned national and international speakers.

The conference also saw changes in the leadership. The new leaders of the society took charge of office. I thank Dr. Mohd. Faizuddin for leading us for the past 1 year, giving us speed and direction which was very much required. It was his vision which led us to hold various programs for the benefit of the members. He is a real pillar of support and strength for motivating us in taking the society ahead.

At this juncture, I am very happy to inform you all that we have an able leader in our President, Dr. Santhosh Sreedhar, who has proved beyond doubt his organizational capabilities at all the possible levels in various organizations. I am sure that he, with his ideas and commitment, will give the society a very meaningful and fruitful year. He has chalked out plans for conducting various programs all round the year with "many firsts" which will be announced from time to time.

I congratulate the editor and his editorial team for bringing out the wonderful publication of international standard. I request all our members at the beginning of this New Year to motivate our non-member friends to become members and strengthen our fraternity.

Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous new year!!!

A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.
