Dear Doctor Anil,
Your internet journal is interesting - you always seem to be very busy! We
would be only too pleased if you would mention our "Breaking the silence"
CD. I have sent it to you by ordinary post today.
Please send me the link, when the description is on the net. Thank you and best wishes for the New Year.

Dear Professor Aggrawal,
It was a great pleasure to acquaint myself with your journal. I have some articles suitable for publication in your journal.
If to be a frank, it is my first experience of a contact with the foreign publishers. I need some time for translation of
the articles. I have published in Russia the article devoted to
histologic diagnosis of tortures by electric current.
I have also informed some of my colleagues to contribute papers to your journal and I trust you will shortly hear from them (certainly, if you don't object) Thank you for your kind invitation.

I am doing a research paper on biomterics for my masters final at Johns
Hopkins University. I found Eamonn's paper on Fingerprints in your journal whilst searching for information on
Sir Edward Henry. I found tremendous value in this paper and applaud it. I
plan to reference this paper in mine.

I have read Dr. Jasuja's paper entitled: "POROSCOPY: A METHOD OF PERSONAL
IDENTIFICATION REVISITED" and found it quite interesting. Although it is
difficult to use pores on a daily basis during the analysis, comparison and
evaluation of fingerprints, their presence is always noted and when they are reproduced in
both the unknown and known impressions, they are taken into account and documented as
third level detail.
Thank you for hosting this paper.

Hello Professor Aggrawal!
I looked at your journal today and it is very impressive. I think it is
wonderful that you have chosen to share your experience in such an easy to
follow manner. I have attached the trade information to this
message and if you want to browse through the congress website, it is on
I also went extensively through your website today and it seems extremely informative. I especially liked the humour and the quotes. Your own quote reminded me of the part of Desderata which reads "Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story." As you say, it must pay to exect the unexpected, even from the most routine tasks.
I look forward to hearing further from you if you have any further questions for me to help with.
Take good care!

I do remember you indeed and very much enjoyed your new and improved website. The reviews are extensive and the use of graphics is very impressive. I know of no other review media that does comparable reviews. Also, having the ability to sell the book on the spot is very good. I have only two concerns. You seem to do most of the reviews. Other people should do reviews too. I still don't like the name of the journal. Nothing personal, but very few reputable journals are named after their editor. It doesn't make a good impression. However, you have done a wonderful job.

Dear Professor Anil Aggrawal!
I have visited your Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology,
Book reviews, Popular Forensic Medicine Page, and Anil Aggrawal's Forensic Toxicology Page. My point of view is - they are the best among all the
forensic websites I have seen. Particularly, the following points seemed to
be the most important:
1) The establishment of an International journal on many languages is very beneficial. Specialists from all over the world can find an interesting information for them on their native language.
2) Forensic pathologists from many countries take part in the work of your journal. Undoubtedly, this is an obvious example of the international collaboration and experience share.
3) Special words should be said about professionally made design and graphics of your journal.
4) Your Internet Pages are very easy in use.

I am pleased and very happy for you in creating a journal on line. It is such a simple but great idea. Good luck with it. I shall try to
oblige you with a paper or two as and when time and inclination pemits.

Had a look at the poster page. Excellent idea but a couple of minor criticisms. Firstly, Gupta's picture is not a close-up and
unfortunately it could be roasted liver! I know that there is a limit to the resolution but my machine is less than one year old and if
the quality is that...! If you can e-mail me a better pic I could have a look. You may even send it as a TIFF file.
Secondly, in the decapitation case he refers to an "iron string". There is no such thing as an iron string in the Queen's Language. It is
probably best described as a "cable" or a "hawser".
And, finally (and this is really nitpicking!). You should either use English spelling or American spelling. I refer to the use of "laborer" instead of "labourer". May be I am getting fussy in my old age but...

Dear Professor Anil Aggrawal,
Your Journal is very interesting, and I will read it from now on. Thank you very much.
I read your journal and found an interesting story. I will go to Edinburgh in April 2002, and stay two years to learn forensic pathology from Professor Anthony Busuttil.

I was delighted to locate your web page and found it very interesting and informative. May I suggest you prepare an index to topics, as it seems each volume contains material on numerous items. I am researching a case in which a homicide victim bit his tongue prior to death (this does not involve seizures of any kind) and wonder if you have any material on or related to this topic? Thank you for your help and for the excellent resource of your web page.
