[AUTHOR:1]Today's research is tomorrow's practice. Understanding research methodology is not only essential for the researcher, but also helpful for the clinician. Young minds bring fresh air. We are fortunate to see a bright new generation with a perceptible change in mindset who has the courage to visualize new things and to question established practices. They are eager to get the evidences themselves and to communicate with the world. This NAPCON' 2013 will let us hear a good number of them. And I congratulate Editor, Lung India to bring the abstracts in a book form so that there remains a permanent mark. The basic ingredients of research - to formulate a question, to define it adequately and to arrive at a scientific solution are essentially a practice of rationality. This gets imbibed early with the pursuance of research protocol. For this, publication has rightly been made mandatory for post-graduate academic qualification. Apart from that, clinically research itself might be a very promising career. Also, ideas generate new ideas for the future.
