    It is or pleasure to bring you issue 2 of Indian Journal of Epilepsy. With serial waves of the COVID-19 pandemic showing signs of waxing and waning it is to the credit of our contributors that the enthusiasm to publish has motivated them. The journal has targeted publication of articles from resource limited settings that focus on clinical and basic research and this issue highlights this ethos. We have topics ranging from non-convulsive status epilepticus, psychiatric comorbidity and working memory issues among children with epilepsy, impact of care-giver burden among carers of person with epilepsy, structural brain lesions in newly diagnosed epilepsy, basic research on PTZ induced seizures in mice and an interesting description on aura in temporal lobe epilepsy. The issue serves a reminder on the complexity of issues encountered by clinicians involved in care of persons with epilepsy and also provides a template for future prospective research given the fact that most studies are limited by sample size and retrospective in design. Investigators we hope will be enthused to amalgamate basic and clinical research as well conduct multicentre studies that address complex issues unique to resource-limited countries. We hope you find this issue interesting and we look forward to more submissions and suggestions to enhance the outreach of IJEP.

    With prayers for peace in our current times.
