He confirmed the presence of the malarial parasite inside the gut of mosquito on 20 August 1897. The next day he confirmed the growth of the parasite in the mosquito. In the evening he composed the poem praising God for Christ’s triumph over death, which enables His children to fight disease and death. British Medical Journal published his discovery on 18 December 1897. The Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to him in 1902. His discovery continues to save billions of us.

Ronald Ross is India’s first Nobel Prize winner. The day he discovered malarial parasite, he celebrated his discovery with this poem:

This day relenting God
Hath placed within my hand
A wondrous thing; and God
Be praised. At His command,
Seeking His secret deeds
With tears and toiling breath,
I find thy cunning seeds,
O million-murdering Death.
I know this little thing
A myriad men will save.
O Death, where is thy sting?
Thy victory, O Grave? (1 Corinthians 15:55)
