Thanks for sharing.

While passing through this grass one may suffer from itch. Natives use different oils including Sarson oil when they have to pass through Apluda population. In forest, wild animals also pass through its dense population. How they manage the problem of itch? As you are very near to them, please try to search the answer.

Please share if you have any idea?

Next time when you visit to forest please bring fresh roots. I will inform you about its unique anti-aging properties.

Apluda mutica L. Sp. Pl. 1: 82. 1753.

Type: Lectotype - Herb. Linn. No. 1213.1 (LINN)

Note: Isnt that sound so interesting that the plant you shared was
described 350 years ago by a person sitting in Europe. And they have a
herbarium specimen too which still looks so fresh!!

Regards
Pankaj
