This is a common wild herb found along roadside hedges. I remember that we used to apply its faintly milky white latex on our minor wounds & bruises while playing in our childhood. Much later i heard / read (?) that like our own saliva plant sap also contains lysozyme that helps fight bacteria and thereby quicken healing of wounds.
Species : Croton bonplandianum Baill.
Habit & Habitat : wild herb, roadside, uncultivated area
