Even when cut, it does not die. It takes air from atmosphere, sends down a thin stem to the ground, goes into soil and starts growing. So, it is called “Saaha Mooli” (Herb that never dies).


Tie a small stem of Gulvel to the big toe of the feet during delivery. It is believed that both the mother and baby are not attacked by germs.
