Healthy Concoction!! Betel Leaf Khashaya

An Evening Stroll in a park in the Bangalore city is like Walking under the Gigantic Fan where air is Gushing and Whirling from all possible directions....The after affect of this is like Pleading all New Viruses and Bacteria's to enjoy an Holiday in our system.....These Intruders not only make you jaded but can also make you Dance on the Hospital Floor....Once they were our Esteemed Guest and made the whole family Dance for there Tune...

We visited all Tom, Dick and Harry and drank bottles and bottles of Tonics which made no effect on the  viruses and bacteria's rather made them more sturdy and comfortable.....This is when my mother told me to dig my own backyard for the medicinal weed  and made one magical concoction out of betal- leaf , betal-nut and edible lime.The combination of these things worked wonders and brought down our constant coughing which once sounded like cats and dogs are fighting to an delectable halt.....
