(Family- Asclepiadaceae) known, as Palagadda/Jeevanthi/Charivel/Palaikkirai/Atapathien is an endemic plant of our country, especially found in the Kerala region of Western Ghats. It was reported first from Kothur reserve forest and Palode area of Thiruvanthapuram district.The plant is also found in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh. It remained as an ethnic plant in this region and the people are not aware of its identity and usage. Scientists from Herbal Folklore Research Centre (HFRC) during their ethno-botanical survey noticed the tribe digging the roots and surviving by selling them to traders who come from the near by state of Tamil Nadu.
