Dear Friends,

Sending a photo of Durva grass.  This grass is offered to Lord Ganesha and it is one of his favorites.
The grass has cooling effect and  used in skin diseases, blood disorders, thirst and burning sensation in the body.

Regards,

Mani.

A reply from Dr. Ravichandran:
"As there is no single spikelet or flowering spike it is very difficult to IDFy the species. Looks like Cynodaon sp. thatsl all. 
 Dr. P. Ravichandran"
Thanks, Dr. Ravichandran.

What is offered to Lord Ganesh, as I know, is garike hullu in kannada
and its botanical name is Cyanodon dactylon. Juice is supposed to be
very healthy and morning walkers after their walk in Kukkarahalli
kere, a beautiful tank, get the juice from a roadside vendor nearby.

Looking at following comment by Manoj Chandran ji in another thread  Submission of Cynodon barberi - YS Apr/2020-04 (google.com)
"Cynodon barberi is a different species with different habit altogether. It has no stolons and hence do not spread to large areas like Cynodon dactylon. The leaves of C.barberi are shorter than that of C.dactylon. The leaves are not linear, but are lanceolate in C.barberi. I am attaching the Kew herbarium sheet of C.barberi."
This should be Cynodon dactylon. Plenty of stolons are seen around, plus the shape of leaf.
