One of the richest habitats for microorganisms is soil due to its complex composition and availability of nutrients which has allowed for the greatest microbial diversity. This diversity is a blessing and a curse, as along with beneficial and non pathogenic microorganisms, it is also a hub for pathogenic microbes to thrive. In this diverse microflora, a plethora of microorganisms are yet to be discovered and understood. Due to the ever-changing climate conditions, global warming, pollution, erosion etc, there may be change in the microbial diversity in soil of a particular area and may lead to infection and spread diseases. 4 different isolates were obtained from soil sample collected from the North Eastern Hill University campus, Shillong, Meghalaya and biochemically identified. 3 out of 4 isolates were identified to be pathogenic in nature. This paper aims to highlight the importance of estimating the soil microorganisms, understand their functions and make aware about the lurking dangers in our surroundings.
