With globalization or urbanization on the rise around towns of India, the grasslands near all the cities and towns are vastly developed with constructions, industries and housings. It is thus devastating the local ecology, thus affecting the life cycles of the plants, and small big creatures. May be for future generation some of the species of plants and creatures will be vanished and can be seen only in pictures. Come together what we can do to stop this devastation.
एकदांडी | tridax procumbens | Kambarmodi in Marathi
This is Tridax Procumbens, or more creatively i call them Dancing flowers as with its long stems these flowers dance with the wind. Found commonly in Maharashtra, Deccan. In our child hood days we used to play with these flowers, with its long stems we were able to make garlands and banquets. My grandfather used to tell us to use the stems & leaf juice on bleeding wounds to heal them fast & as hair tonic. this was the medicinal use of this plant. Tridax procumbens is known for several potential therapeutic activities like antiviral, anti oxidant antibiotic efficacious, wound healing activity, insecticidal and anti-inflammatory activity.
