Study of Quark-Gluon plasma (QGP) has been a very active area of research In high energy physics since last four decades. This article gives an elementary introduction to QGP. It covers the motivation to study QGP, its abundance In nature, experimental status, production mechanism, signatures and modelling dynamics. We have discussed the medium effects in QGP in terms of response functions, heavy quark potential and Landau damping. Some other recent approaches are also discussed.
