Dear friends,

Those familiar with names in their languages may point out any error / provide any better known name(s).

Would like to get the Bengali name gewa in Bangla script.
Would also like to get valid name(s) of this plant in Kannada script ... at ENVIS / FRLHT, they are: haaro (OR hara / haro) gida, kamate, kammatta, thilla, tilla

Regards.

Excellent Dinesh
Please continue your great contribution. We are enjoying.
I think you missed the name of Family: Euphorbiaceae in the write up.

Many thanks Tanay and Satish ji for the appreciation.

This write-up is copy-paste of Excoecaria agallocha page at a Google site called Names of Plants in India.
To avoid rework of changing family names at any later stage, have not mentioned them anywhere.


Regards.
