I wanted to tell you that I have worked on a few plants (Rubiaceae and Violaceae) collected from my home village, Kuruthukulli. The purpose was to check the potential of the collected plants for its pharmaceutical and other biological activities. What I found and observed was amazing, the plant(s) I collected from crops of Kuruthukulli village got a remarkable bio-control and pharmaceutical property. This I published in various INTERNATIONAL/NATIONAL Journals which is now available over the Internet. I am sending you the article/research papers as well for your glance.
