  • EditorialSo far things have been good - we have grown as a team, our

    readers have been generally happy and we are learning plenty. We are working hard to make our magazine bigger and better with bigger reach. That's the reason we felt that we need to be more inimitable and identifiable. We changed our look for a fresher and more contemporary look. Our logo is a wonderful and ingenious monogram which incorporates the initials of our magazine name TVC.

    From this issue, we are introducing for our readers';

    The Cover Story this quarter covers the New Age Fibres and Yarns. In recent years there have been tremendous innovations and applications in the fibres and yarns field. With increasing consumer needs, improvisation at fabric level is pass. Changes are now being done at the fibre level itself to give a better final product. As new production techniques become available, the opportunities for engineering fibres and yarns stretch from large-scale to the nano, invisible to the naked eye. Increasingly they are playing a vital role in health, protection and final consumer products. This story covers research and application of fibres and yarns from all over the globe.

    With the extension of TUFS (Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme) and introduction of FDI in Retail, from trade and labour deficiency in China, the next few years are going to have a telling effect on the Indian Textile Industry. This is a golden chance for us to rein in our horses and go for the kill. We can improve our machinery, make our base stronger, conduct researches for growth and improvisation, educate and train our youth in textiles and engineering and train them for eventual replacement for the retirees and improvise our current state of affairs. We need to think

    to become thorough professionals and be true global leaders in manufacturing and supply of raw materials.
