  1. Amazing information Poornima ! The fact that these animals know so much about medicinal plants is simply astonishing ! How did they get this information ? How do they know so much ? Its a marvel !!

  2. With loss of vegetation the younger generation of elephants may not be all that knowledgeable. Just like in my case…I can hardly recognize the sarpagandha, which happens to be a vital ingredient in ayurveda.

    • Yes Mamta , Sarpagandha is in the endangered species list . But as always there is hope , with concerted efforts of Dr.Ganesh Babu from FRLHT this plant is available in the nursery .
