Subject: Media query about tuber sold on streets
To: <pullaiah....@gmail.com>


Hello Dr Pullaiah,
This is Barkha Kumari, a freelance journalist from Bangalore. It's nice to make your acquaintance.
I am attaching the photo of the tuber I saw in Bangalore.

Can you please help me with the contact of the following?
1. Contact number of your scholars who have seen this plant extracted? It's critical for me to speak to somebody who has seen the plant and seen it extracted too.
2. Can you connect me to a botanist in Kerala/Karnataka/Western Ghats who may have information about this?
3. Would you know any local seller family that sells it?
4. Can you connect me to anybody from a tribal welfare department/NGO that may use this as an agro-forestry product?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Maerua oblongifolia

We have collected from many place's in Andhara Pradesh for preservation.
And Have seen  also wild boar diggings for tuber.
