Research is essential for progress. Scientific advances in medicine depend upon research. Research does not always depend upon so called facilities. Research attitude is more important. This needs to be encouraged and imbibed. Curiosity, observation, perseverance, asking questions are some of the attributes of a researcher. Research can explore funda- mentals or be clinical. Discussion, interactions are important sources of research ideas. Simple case reports can be the beginning of a major discovery. Indians are not at the forefront of research. Why? These are some of the ideas covered in this article.
