@Dr. Akshay Ingole Sir! कदम्ब (BURFLOWER TREE) It is the English common name Burflower tree, popularly known as Kadamba. Kadamba has its roots in the Bhagwad Gita. In North India, it is associated with Krishna, whilst in the South it is known as ‘Parvati’s Tree.’ Radha and Krishna are supposed to have conducted their love play in the hospitable and sweet- scented shade of the Kadamba tree. Medicinal Benefits: Kadamba is one of the most useful herbs mentioned in all ancient Sanskrit scriptures and Ayurvedic texts. It is bitter, pungent and astringent in taste. It is categorised as an analgesic and its fruit pulp as a purifier of seminal fluids. It is also considered as a detoxifier and anti–diarrhoeal. The leaves of the tree are very beneficial for curing Diabetes. The alkaloids prepared from the extracts of the Kadamba tree leaves, when consumed for around 4-10 months cures diabetes. External wounds and ulcers are dressed with its leaves slightly warmed to alleviate the pain, swelling, cleansing and better healing of the wounds. Again, if applied externally, the paste of its bark skin is very good for conjunctivitis.

Thank you very much, Sir fit the descriptive explanation!
