Amazing Trees Constipation Ripe bael fruit is regarded as best of all laxatives.

It cleans and tones up the intestines. Its regular use for 2 or 3 months throws out even the old accumulated faecal matter. For best results, it should be taken in the form of sherbet, which is prepared from the pulp of the ripe fruit. After breaking the shell, the seeds are removed, 'with the contents spooned out and sieved. Milk and sugar are added to make it more palatable. The pulp of the ripe fruit can also be taken without the addition of milk or sugar. About 70 grams of the fruit will suffice for an adult. Diarrhoea and Dysentery The unripe or half-ripe fruit is perhaps the most effective remedy for chronic diarrhea and dysentery where there is no fever. Best results are obtained by the use of dried bael or its powder. The bael fruit, when it is still green, is sliced and dried in the sun. The dried bael & lices are powdered and preserved in airtight bottles. The unripe bael can also be baked and used with jaggery or brown sugar.

Peptic Ulcer An infusion of bael leaves is regarded as an effective remedy for peptic ulcer. The leaves are soaked overnight in water. This water is strained and taken in the morning. The pain and discomfort are relieved when this treatment is continued for a few weeks. Bael leaves are rich in tannin which reduces inflammation and help in the healing of ulcers. Bael fruit taken in the form of a beverage also has great healing properties on account of its mucilage content. This forms a coating on the stomach mucosa and thus helps heal ulcers. aditya pandey

Holy basil - spiritual
Holy basil is the most sacred plant in the Hindu religion, and is found in or near almost every Hindi house throughout India. It is frequently grown in courtyards and temples and is believed to protect from misfortune and sanctifies and guides to heaven all who cultivate it.

Holy basil represents purity, serenity, harmony, luck, happiness and good health. It is given the Sanskrit name 'tulsi' which means 'incomparable'. The Brahmins hold it sacred to the gods Krishna and Vishnu. The story goes that this plant is the transformed nymph Tulasi, beloved of Krishna. For this reason the plant is cultivated in pots of brick pillars with hollows at the top in which earth is deposited. It is daily watered and worshipped by all members of the family.

Home and ceremonial use
To promote well-being and encourage the grace of the goddess as a living presence in the home, many Indian women begin the day by offering blessed water to the plant, walking around it and praying before it. Offerings to all the Hindu deities are deemed complete if they involve the use of holy basil leaves. In the Vrat Kaumudi, one of the sacred books of the Hindus, a ceremony called the tulashi laksha vrat is ordered to be performed when a vow is made. Holy basil leaves are used in offerings to Krishna. Nayavad is another ceremony among Hindus which involves taking a brass dish containing cooked food, and placing it before the god in a square marked out on the ground. The worshipper squats on a low stool, and taking two leaves of holy basil in his right hand, he closes his eyes with his left, dips the leaves in the water, and throws one upon the food and the other on the god. Holy basil is also used in Hindu weddings and funerals. The marriage season in India is traditionally launched by ceremonies celebrating holy basil. One of these is a wedding ceremony called Tulsi Vivah. Here the plant is symbolically married to Shaligram carved from a semi-precious stone which represents Vishnu. This takes place in the month of Kartikka of the lunar calendar, around mid-October. Under good conditions, holy basil can grow to a considerable size with a woody stem large enough to make beads for the rosaries used by Hindus on which they count the number of recitations of their deity's name.

The Tulsi or holy basil is an important symbol in the Hindu religious tradition and is worshiped in the morning and evening by Hindus at large. Tulsi is an amazing herbal medicine used in numerous ailments.

Between the discipline of Punjab and Haryana’s proud Sikhs and the apparent lawlessness of much of Bihar lies Uttar Pradesh, held by many to be the heartland of India – its soul enshrined in the incomparable Taj Mahal at Agra and its religious sentiments laid bare on the burning ghats of Varanasi. The Northern Plains' great sights Heartland of the great Mughal empire, India’s northern plains are home to several of the country’s most wondrous monuments – including the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri – as well as its holiest river, the Ganges. The principal natural feature of the northern plains – worshipped as a nur-turing Mother Goddess by Hindus – is the river revered as ‘Ma Ganga’, which gushes out of the Himalayan foothills at Rishikesh and wends southeast towards its confluence with the region’s other main artery, the Jamuna, at Allahabad. From there, the Ganga travels lazily west through the ancient city of Varanasi and to the former seat of the Mauryans, Patna, capital of modern-day Bihar. Spiritualiy also abounds in this state at Bodhgaya, where the Buddha was said to have achieved Enlightenment. Riven in two by Partition in 1947, the Punjab was named after the five major tributaries of the Indus flowing through it. Only a couple of these drain through the modern Indian state abutting the Pakistani border, but it still ranks among the most fertile parts of the country. The holiest Sikh city, Amritsar, is found here.

Rainfall is erratic, ranging from below 120 mm. The soils of the arid region are generally sandy to sandy-loam in texture.

Highlands/ Plateau
The Central Highlands consists of three main plateaus — the Malwa Plateau in the west, the Deccan Plateau in the south and the Chota Nagpur Plateau in the east. The Malwa Plateau is spread across states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat with average elevation of 500 metres generally sloped towards the north. Drained by the Chambal River and its tributaries. The Deccan Plateau is a large triangular plateau covering a total area of 1.9 million km² (735,000 mile²). It is mostly flat, with elevations ranging from 300 to 600 m, sloping gently from west to east and gives rise to several peninsular rivers such as the Godavari, the Krishna, the Kaveri and the Mahanadi which drain into the Bay of Bengal. The Chota Nagpur Plateau is situated in eastern India, Its total area is approximately 65,000 km² (25,000 mile²). Much of the plateau is forested, covered by the dry deciduous forests.

The Eastern Coastal Plain is a wide stretch of land lying between the Eastern Ghats and the Bay of Bengal. It stretches from Tamil Nadu in the south to West Bengal in the east. The Mahanadi, Godavari, Kaveri, and Krishna rivers drain these plains. Annual rainfall in this region averages between 1,000 and 3,000 mm (39 and 120 in). The plains are divided into six regions —the Mahanadi delta, the southern Andhra Pradesh plain, the KrishnaGodavari deltas, the Kanyakumari coast, the Coromandel Coast, and sandy coastal. The Western Coastal Plain is a narrow strip of land sandwiched between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea, ranging from 50 to 100 km (31 to 62 mi) in width. It extends from Gujarat in the north and extends through Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, and Kerala. Major rivers flowing into the sea are the Tapi, Narmada, Mandovi and Zuari. Vegetation is mostly deciduous.

The Himalayan range is home to the planet's highest peaks, including the highest, Mount Everest. The Himalayas include over a hundred mountains exceeding 7,200 metres (23,600 ft) in height. By contrast, the highest peak outside Asia

TheNORTHERN PLAINS of India are to the south of the Himalayan area. Deacon Plateau is south of the Northern Plains of India. There are three rivers in this area. They are the Sutlej, Ganga and the Brahmaptura rivers
