The herb that heals fractures.

Bone fractures.
Kavya took us up the fields to show up this tiny herb whose leaves were used when her brother Sasi broke his bone. The leaves are ground with urad dal and the white of an egg and applied over the splint which is then bound with a cloth. Til oil is poured over the cloth daily till the bone healing is complete.
Village people value this over the allopathic cast which has no medicines to help healing. They call that 'pindi kattu' disparagingly.
