With deepest pain in my heart, I am putting forward this first editorial in view of 26/11 terrorist attack on Mumbai, which came as a real shock to the whole nation and the world; my sincere condolences to the victims of this heinous crime and their families. I salute all brave-hearted officers and NSG commandos who fought selflessly and with unparalleled solidarity to combat this terror.

Besides this, we also witnessed shocking revelation from world of information technology this year. Severe crunch in economy has affected people and business all over the world. A similar scenario has been experienced by the Karnataka State Government under the private management regarding BDS admission in the recent past. The ratio of the number of applicants seeking admissions and the seats available in the common entrance test (CET) for BDS course has decreased considerably, especially during year 2008-09. Only 260 seats filled up against 821 seats available in CET examination with annual fees of INR25,000, that accounts for just 31.66%. While only 4.1% seats were filled, i.e. only 32 seats against 777 available, in COMED-K with annual fees of INR1,84,000. This situation necessitated the Karnataka Government to decide performance in the PUC examination as the qualifying criterion for BDS admissions.

I took over as the Editor of the prestigious journal JISPPD on 15 th of November, 2008, during the conference held in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. Our past Editor has done a commendable job in designating a high standard to our esteemed journal. I will put in my best efforts to ensure timely release of the four periodicals of this journal, at the same time promising to maintain the quality and standards set by the previous issues.

The journals office is still in the transit stage and it will take some time to streamline all the editorial work. I request all the contributors to make sure that their articles reach my office either by online submission or by requesting the previous Editor to forward it to me.
