India is inhabited by a wide variety of tribal populations who dwell in forested areas and depend on surrounding resources for their livelihood. Various tribes use the different parts of the grass for many of their ailments such as mouth ulcer, fever, boil, epilepsy, burn, snakebite, scorpion sting, rheumatism, fever, headache, etc. The Santhal tribes of Bihar and West Bengal use the paste of fresh roots for burn, snakebite and scorpion sting, and a decoction of the roots as a tonic for weakness; the Lodhas of West Bengal use the root paste for headache, rheumatism and sprain, and a stem decoction for urinary tract infection; the Mandla and Bastar tribes of Madhya Pradesh use the leaf juice as anthelmintic; the tribes of the Varanasi district inhale the root vapour for malarial fever. The root ash is given to patients for acidity by the Oraon tribe. Likewise, there are very many different applications of the plant for different ailments among different ethnic tribes (Jain 1991; Singh & Maheshwari 1983).
