Blakar Ji nice snap , yes it is extremely important medicinally . as the leaves when crushed gives an urine like smell hence its name Ashwaganda . Ashwa means horse and Gandha means smell hence horse like smell. Link for the plant http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withania_somnifera

It is considered to be an aphrodisiac, though it is a doubtful property.
