Dear Alumini,

Wishes for New year !!

The Bapuji Dental Alumini community truly is a wonderful family, and I thank all of you - alumni, faculty, students, and staff for your support and well wishes.

You don't have to be here very long before the old buildings and quaint traditions take hold, and you start to realize that the institution is something bigger, more significant, more lasting than the mere mortals who inhabit it at the moment. I am sure all of you are proud of being a part of Bapuji Dental Alumini .This journal is a collective enterprise and it has been fortunate to have Dr. Raison Thomas as Editor-in-Chief who has served the journal's interest with dedication and distinction. His tireless efforts with Medknow publications have reaped rich dividends.

These are exciting times at BDCH! As you all know, the College is Accredited with NAAC-A and we are determined to get reaccredited by this year end. Our present and future vision is clear: To continue promoting the welfare of the College, its students, and the profession of dentistry; maintain a high standard of education courses and ensure we remain the pioneering Institute we have become. Bapuji Dental College has been committed to education , research and patient care. Our reputation for excellence in patient care extends around the country and we strive hard to uphold it.

I view my first duty as Principal as one of stewardship... to transmit to the next generation a School of Dentistry that is distinguished as one of the most sought after educational institutes. Stewardship, of course, requires money. We do our best to keep our relatively predictable sources of income in balance with our wildly unpredictable day-to-day expenses .But to maintain BDCH's position of leadership takes constant investment beyond what can be set aside from ordinary sources. There are many other ways for alumni to contribute and give back to the College. I encourage you to reach out to all of our alumni who may not have heard of our move, to contact us if you are considering volunteering, getting eminent international speakers to grace college events and make article contributions to IJOHS. Most importantly, it's not how much you give, but rather that you are counted among those who do give. Moving the needle just a bit is better than not moving it at all.

So let's look back with a deep sense of pride and satisfaction at your accomplishments, and look forward to an even better future by contributing to whatever part of BDCH that is most meaningful to you.

You learned your profession in this building. Let's hand it on, even better, to the next generation.
