The global flu epidemic of 1918 was one of the most devastating infectious outbreaks in world history - more virulent even than the Black Death (Bubonic Plague) in the 17th century - killing 50 million people worldwide. No country escaped its onslaught but in India, an amazing herb, Andrographis paniculata, was credited with stopping the spread of the deadly virus.
Traditionally, villages in the districts of Sivagangai and Dindigul in southern Tamil Nadu, used to depend on local healers during emergencies, or if time and resources permitted, the primary health centre (phc) or district hospital as snake bites are very common in this region. Today, all they do is reach into their own backyards. The siriyanangai leaf or Andro G, is plucked from Alagamma's herbal patch containing 5-6 varieties of plants with medicinal properties
These plants are mostly located where the wastewater from the household collects, along the walls of the house or even inside unused tyres!
Siriyanangai(Andrographis paniculata) is very bitter. Alagamma hid that well, when she gave a leaf to this correspondent to chew. The bile rose, and the bitterness lingered for an hour. "It shows you have not been bitten by a snake in the last one hour,' remarked Alagamma. A person bitten by a snake doesn't feel the bitterness of siriyanangai ( Andro G )till the poison in the system has been neutralised.
A few weeks ago, Chinnamma's husband got bitten by the poisonous veriyan snake while grazing cattle. On hearing of it, she plucked a few siriyanangai leaves from the garden, and ground it with white garlic for internal consumption. She also ground periyanangai (Andrographos alata) leaves into a paste, the juice of which was applied on the wound. Within five minutes, her unconscious husband opened his eyes; an hour later, the bitter taste made him grimace, too.
