Dear Academician
I’m glad to publish the second issue of the sixth volume of the scientific journal of Vikhe Patil Institute of Medical Sciences, Ahmednagar.

With the emergence of monsoon, it is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and parasites which leads to various water borne diseases that affect a lot of people and hence very few people are seen at schools and offices and way too many people are seen in the hospitals. Various diseases like Diarrhoea, Malaria, Typhoid, Dengue, Leptospirosis, Respiratory tract infections etc. are the common cases seen in the OPD of all hospitals.

Certain preventive measures like strict maintenance of hygiene, proper washing of hands, avoidance of water collection near households and domestic areas should be implemented. A healthy and nutritious diet is extremely important to prevent spread of contagious disease.

On the other hand, monsoon brings with it the culinary delights of hot street food and beverages which makes it one of the most awaited season of the year. The rainbows, blooming of beautiful flowers and the smell of the wet soil are a gift for our senses.

I request the readers to provide us with their valuable inputs for the betterment of the journal. We are thankful to the editorial team and the management of this foundation for their support in the making of this journal.

Thanking You
