Welcome to my world of scientific madness. A madness that will spread so fast that soon, you, your parents and teachers will all be a part of it. However, unlike an infection, this madness is awesome. An infection, on the other hand, is awful. Who wants to have a fever anyway? The thought of staying in bed all day while our friends go out and play. Groan!
But just like we know our friends, we must also know our enemies. So in this issue, we encounter everyone’s enemy – disease.
In addition, we’re making you, dear reader, a regular contributor to Brainwave. We encourage you to write in to us with a story, a drawing and even participate in the DIY and Toybox activities. We’re also incorporating a Treasure Hunt. Don’t forget to check for words or phrases that have a ‘’ before them.
On a final note, with this being my first issue as editor of Brainwave, I would like to thank Somesh, Aparna, Rajita and Sasikanth, the main BW team, Reena Puri, the editor of Amar Chitra Katha, and Rajani Thindiath and Savio Mascarenhas of the Tinkle team for their support. Not to forget, I owe Vinayak Varma, the founding editor of BW for starting the magazine and passing it on to me.
I look forward to a wonderful scientific life with all of you.
