38th Tree Appreciation Walk in MNP, Dharavi, Mumbai on 28th April,13 at 7.30 am :

Its summer time…….Jamun, water melons, mangoes have replaced all the other pleasures of life. Aam ras, Aam panna, Kokam juice, Bael Sharbat, Lassi and Chas dominate our refrigerators. On the other hand summer heat is bringing in its own few irritants and discomforts…..stomach upsets, fever, sore throat, headaches, dehydration…..giving us anxious moments. Our mind wanders & wonders what treatment to take allopathic or Ayurvedic?

As our mind debates over allopathic, being accused of having side effects and Ayurvedic treatment taunted with ‘Placebo effect’…….. we invite you all to take a walk with us on medicinal plants in MNP, Dharavi on 28th April,13…. it is dedicated to “The Garden of Life” by Naveen Patnaik….he has given an introduction to the Healing Plants of India.
