I am pleased to release this issue, even though it is a little late this
time. At the time of publishing this issue, some good things are
happening in the world. Summer has finally arrived. A much-awaited
intercultural royal wedding is certainly another example. It has been
a painful process this time due to reasons beyond our control. Even
though it is not unusual for a magazine like ours to be delayed we want
our readers and writers to be aware that publishing can be problematic.
Despite some hurdles, as usual we are bringing this issue full of
interesting contributions from our family of writers. As I mentioned
in our February issue, the late arrival of articles and their quality does
impact on our scheduling of each issue and the number of pages per
issue. Therefore, I would like to ask our contributors to send their
contributions regularly on time at least three weeks before each quarterly
issue. So, we should have received your submissions by mid-April.
In our cover stories we have touched on some of the events that have
attracted much publicity in recent days. Since these issues affect our
lives directly or indirectly, we thought it a good idea to write about
Finally, I would like to hear from anyone who want to join our team
and help us in many ways to run this magazine smoothly and bring
new ideas too.
