Thanks for sharing, Nayan ji.

Once it was under cultivation. Hence it is one of the lost crops of India.

Said to be problematic weed in rice fields.

Valuable Traditional Medicine. Much in demand specially after declaration that Indian is Diabetes capital of the world.

Having unique Healing properties to nullify the harmful effects of popular Diabetes herbs including Gymnema and Methi.

Once Famine food now becoming regular food for body builders.

Useful link for Sawa
