Dear readers, I feel elated to present the sixth issue of our journal. Due to ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, the health-care facility, its functionality, and output have changed a lot. Due to changes in practice of patient care in outpatient department, indoors, and operation theater, the new protocols are enforced. We have a review article and an original article on these issues. The practice of surgery has changed on each aspect of preoperative assessment, intraoperative protocols, and postoperative care. These are time-consuming and money-consuming practices. However, we have to follow the guidelines and precautions for the larger benefit of society and for personal care as well.

I am thankful to Prof Dr Alok Agrawal for working hard on the symposium of distal radial fractures. It is a burning topic in today's practice even after centuries. We have tried to cover all the aspects of these fractures from anatomy, classification, conservative to operative management. The issue of ipsilateral elbow and distal radial fractures and one bone forearm are special considerations in the symposium.

Original articles on spine-like lumbar facet joint and failed back syndrome are clinically significant conditions. Anatomical variation in our population needs observations and its description. It helps in management of these patients. Failed back syndrome article gives new insight on a difficult issue.

Unreamed tibial nailing in compound fractures is well dealt with in the article. Newer practice methods in drilling during COVID-19 pandemic need readers' attention and comments. Many of our practices may change due to newer revelations about mode of transmission of this disease.

Apart from lucid articles, we have included well-written rare case reports. In this issue, we have published the obituary about our revered teacher Prof Dr H N Sinha. He was one of the most dynamic members of our association. His demise has created a space never to be filled by time. With this series, we try to pay homage to our senior members and to create an information system for the future generations. We also pay homage to Mr R. V. Kamath, credit controller of Wolters Kluwer publications. His continuous support has helped us to continue this journal till date.

I request our readers to send their letters to the editor after having this issue in hand. I also thank our new editorial board members who worked hard in preparing this issue in time.
