Abstract: The world of science is always so alluring.  The more you learn….the more you want to learn… I must note down everything from now on in this diary as it might lead to a greater discovery for mankind as a whole.  It would help mention the facts correct in my thesis too. Today it was a sort of serendipity for me.  I found it growing on the carcass of some dead rodent on the countryside.I had not visited the place for quite some time after my spine injury, and you know, there are some biologists who just want to look up everything under the microscope! I always carry my equipments for that purpose only.  So, out of curiosity and enthusiasm I scraped the rodent’s skin and brought the slimy growth to my lab on a Petri dish.It was a microbe…about which I had never studied.I took out my whole collection of books,materials and looked up the Internet too. Nobody mentioned about a microbe with such specifications ever.  I don’t know where it had come from on the rodent’s body or how it grew on it.
