We dedicate this issue to our dear editor, S. V. Raju. As most readers would know, Mr. Raju was associated with the journal for many decades. This was not his job or a time-pass. This was his passion, his baby which he would cradle in his arms month after month when the bundle of the journal was brought by the printer to our office.

The glowing tributes paid to him bring out varying aspects of Mr. Raju’s personality – simple and humble by nature, but not to be easily cowed down especially for causes which were close to his heart. Restless at times when things were not moving in the direction they should, he never gave up hope for a better future for the country.

And finally, like any other person, Mr. Raju was a family man, the doting husband and the caring father. His son Vivek shares with us a few events from their life. He is indeed "The Complete Man”.

Our regular contributor on economic issues, Mr. Sunil Bhandare recounts the hitches slowing down the economy and offers some pointers for unhindered progress. Prof. Ramesh Babu simplifies for us the continuing conflicts between China and its neighbours in the disputed Spratly Islands and the role of the US in this fracas.

In our "Educating Adults” section, Mr. Firoze Hirjikaka’s piece on Life and Death awakens the readers to the true meaning of a life well-lived. We also have Prof. R. W. Desai suggesting some examination reforms, while Mr. Cecil Parker’s light-hearted banter will bring a smile to your face.

Among the two book reviews, we have Mr. Raju’s last authored book published in November 2014 and Mr. Ashok Karnik relates in his book, his views as a part of the Intelligence community.

Information about the online edition will eventually be available on our website www.freedomfirst.in
