Issue 3 - 2014

Editorial

Greetings from Surana and Surana, India.

It's peak summer in India and Mangoes are the flavour of the season. While it's sad that the Europeans were unable to get a taste of premium Indian mangoes this time, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as Indians had access at ‘reasonable costs’. Likewise the Indian generic drugs industry, which accounts for about 24% of global generics market, has had it's heat of moments, due to the criticism of India’s Patent regime and it's take on ‘affordable reach’ to life saving drugs. In the exclusive coverage, Yellow Box patrons Venkatesh Viswanath & Deepak Vaid analyse the Indian drug patent regime.

Considering a few recent judgments by the Indian Courts, our fellow patron Ramesh Kannan brings you a ‘legal overview on the working of patents in India’. In this edition, we also remember the unsung Indian hero of Radio Communication - Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, who was the first Indian to be awarded a US patent.

To engage your senses we bring you an IQ trick – it’s a dare if you can decode it!

We hope you continue enjoying the Yellow Box experience.

Cheers.

Team Yellow Box
