It is an immense honour for me to have the opportunity to write the editorial for the Journal of Cerebrovascular Sciences. The journal has always been an integral part of the Cerebrovascular Society of India's endeavours to share knowledge, propagate innovation and exchange novel ideas. I take great pride in my duties in taking the journal to newer heights.

The current volume has been given a makeover. We are now in collaboration with Wolters-Kluwer, which will indeed springboard the journal to an international platform, the place it really belongs. We are publishing the works of the finest cerebrovascular surgeons, physicians and interventionalists across our country and beyond.

For the year 2020, though the discussion on the topic is as widespread as the pandemic itself, there is no denying the impact that COVID-19 has had, on all healthcare professionals regardless of the kind of practice. Even though it has been an eternal truth, for the first time in many decades, we as doctors are also now aware of our physical vulnerability that we may ourselves become patients and suffer from a disease that doctors themselves do not fully comprehend. Everyone now looks at chest X-rays with perhaps more weightage than they do a computed tomography scan, and gloves have become a routine part of ward rounds.

Neurosurgeons deal with invisible enemies at all times, and a virus does not change the number of disabilities we are likely to encounter. As stressful as the scenario is, I believe, this is a lesson that we must embrace, to be more mindful of the things we do on a daily basis.

This pandemic must remind us of the importance of safety precautions of not just ourselves, but also the teams we work with, and our families. Just as we must not compromise on protection and prevention of the coronavirus, we must build on this, and make it a habit, especially after the crisis. It also emphasises the importance of communication among all members of the healthcare team, and with patients and their families.

The one thing that COVID-19 has not changed, but in fact enhanced, is the resolve of healthcare professionals to work for the good of the community.

I sincerely hope that this journal, with its variety of articles on several interesting topics in this issue, will continue to inspire the readers to also become contributors with the resolve for advancement in the field of cerebrovascular sciences.
