Abstract: Plants have been associated with health, nutrition and overall care of mankind since time immemorial. Madhuca indica J. F. Gmel. (Family - Sapotaceae) is deeply associated with the culture and livelihood of tribal people in North Maharashtra. It provides them food, medicines, feed and medicines for their livestock, apart from its miscellaneous utilities. It is boon for the poverty ridden forest dwellers. However, this species has received hatred from the non-tribals in past and even in present times. This trend has culminated into marginalization of this plant in wild populations in this region. However, the aborigines concerned are conserving it. This paper highlights its traditional uses by these tribal people.
