The Knowledge Rich Poor
(A Poem By Dr. Balaram Sahu)
The son of our village landlord came
To stay, see and conquer all
He was moving with his followers
Those always talk tall?
While going through the farm
A swarm of wasps bit his face
His face got much swollen
And he reeled under pain.
Some one shouted for drugs
Some one for some ice
Where will these be found?
In an inaccessible field of rice
The pain was rising high
Became unbearable too
The flatters were only shouting
Nothing could they do?
A laborer was working
A little away there,
He offered his help
To cure and take his care
The laborer plucked the stem of a plant
"Colocacia" is the name
It is a common vegetable
And its taste makes its fame.
He massaged few drops of the stem juice
Over the wasp bitten wound,
The pain subsided quickly
And the redness could not be found.
The laborer was very poor
But rich in traditional knowledge
If you need some of these
Tell him with some courage.
(In rural Orissa ,People use the stem juice of "arbi" or "saru" (Colocacia) to relieve pain from ant ,wasp,bee biting. Application of some drops of juice from the stem of leaves of arbi plants work wonder in minutes.Arbi is a popular country side vegetable grown under soil.Shree Ramesh Chandra Parida of Kendrapada in Orissa has used this in many occasions and got good result) __._,_.___
