Psychiatry was a known branch of medicine in our country over a few millennia, But the history of modern psychiatry had its beginnings in mental hospitals. Perhaps the very words “Mental Hospital” replacing the demeaning “Lunatic Asylum” originated here at CIP Ranchi. It is very symbolic and significant that we are holding our national conference at this historical place.

The supplement carries the essence of a century of psychiatry in India, the intellectual capital that we have now and the zeal of the zealous young among us. The scientific committee took great pains to see the selected work, symposia and workshops reflect the depth of the current psychiatric thought of our country.

It is a gruelling task for the organising committee to compile all the abstracts, put them in a form to the exacting standards of Prof T S S Rao, the Editor and submit them all within an unwavering deadline. I have had the privilege of observing the work of the organizing team from the very close quarters and therefore would like to congratulate Dr. D Ram, Dr. Sanjay Kumar Munda and Dr Nishant Goyal for enduring the grind with smiles.

Long live Indian Psychiatric Society
