“Change is the law of life. Those, who look only to the past or present, are certain to miss the future”.John F. Kennedy
These thoughts are but loud thinking of a sort. Personally, my being in the field of psychiatry for the last 28 years I have seen the journal grow in leaps and bounds. I bow with reverence to the past editors who have strived to keep the journal in the forefront and as the true indicators of sweeping changes happening in our Indian society in general and the psychiatry, in particular. Quarter century may be a short period in the millennium but too important a time to be missed out. Last few years, in fact the journal has changed quite a bit for good - It can definitely rate among the best publications the world over - talk of the get up, available intellectual input and stimulating content. Hailing from the silicon valley of India, yet I felt we can make use of best available changes around us, particularly the information technology and its varied avatars. That is the stimulus for all the changes I am contemplating for the journal which I am narrating in this editorial.
I am confident the esteemed IPS membership appreciates the changes being brought about. True to the paradigm ‘Only thing constant is change’, I do hope the new functional changes will stand the test of time. I am grateful to the president, the secretary and the office bearers who have consented to the changes. I am indebted to the help of associate, deputy and assistant editors who have helped the immensely. The editorial board, journal committee, National and International Advisory board, statistical consultants and the esteemed membership of IPS will be my guides. Dr. Sahu of Medknow Publications, Mumbai has been entrusted with an immense task and working with him has been a very pleasant experience for me and confident that this association will prove a boon for the big things all of us are keeping in mind. This is an opportunity for a new beginning and I seek the helping hand of one and all in this pleasant task.
Long Live IPS.
