With the advent of the new millennium, it is evident that the science of organic chemistry has taken a new dimension. The increasing demands of its applications to the art and comforts of life have thrown a challenge to organic chemists to formulate new strategies in the practice of this discipline. The growing list of life threatening diseases afflicting mankind has put organic chemists into a challenge to develop newer efficient drugs to save lives. Recent thrust in developing effective organic materials to make our life easier has taken a fresh look at the possible trends that will shape the future of organic chemistry in our country. This symposium intends to look at these issues in a small way with leading organic chemists from home and abroad addressing the subject in their chosen fields. We feel that, with the glorious history of more than fifty years of sustained activity in various areas of organic synthesis, this institution is most suited to look at such current perspective through this symposium.
