"Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future is not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires."

- Charles Caleb Colton

I shall always begin, start, initiate, take the first step, or write the first word, when I get around it. A year has elapsed since I took over as President, and I believe I have contributed to the best of my capability for the smooth running of our society. I am thankful to all executive committee members and all other members who gave their valuable suggestions which immensely helped me to take necessary steps to improve working of society. This is the time to analyze what we have achieved during the past year. I am happy to share with you that most of the activities of the society have been restored back; like - updated website with membership details, quick response to member's queries, essay competition, student merit awards, regular and updated mailings from head office about events and happenings etc. The credit goes to our young and dynamic Hon. secretary Dr. Balaji Manohar, and I would like to thank him for being with me through all these changes. I also appreciate the efforts of our editor Dr. Ashish Nichani; who after initial hurdles has streamlined quarterly publication of our journal and would like to appreciate his dedication and commitment for the same.

Preparations of 36 th Annual national conference of our society are in full swing at Ahmedabad under the able supervision of Dr. Mihir Shah and I hope, during this event, all the members will get a chance to satisfy their knowledge hunger, enjoy fellowship, socialize, and enjoy the sumptuous recipes of Western India. We will also get a chance to interact with Jørgen Slots and Dr. Surender Singh who are our international guest speakers at this conference. Dr. Slots is the editor-in-chief of three leading international dental journals: The Journal of Periodontal Research, Periodontology 2000, and Oral Microbiology and Immunology. He also discovered the role of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans in periodontitis in humans. I hope all the delegates will be benefitted by the deliberations of these renowned dignitaries of our profession during this conference.

I am handing over the charge to Dr. Mohd. Faizuddin, who is an academician of repute and a senior member of our society. Hope the society will grow many folds during his tenure to scale new heights and I wish all the best to the new office bearers. I am signing out for the time being and see you all at Ahmedabad.
