The wood is dirty white and soft and, being durable under water, is used for well-curbs and water scoops. Good charcoal can be obtained from it. The leaves are usually very leathery and not eaten by cattle. The leaves are used by street food sellers to serve food placed on the leaves. Usage in leather: The gum is known as Bengal Kino and is considered valuable by druggists because of its astringent qualities and by leather workers because of its tannin. Culinary use: The gum from the tree, called kamarkas in Hindi, is used in certain food dishes. Patravali plate: In villages of many parts of India, for example in Maharashtra, this tree provides leaves that are used either with many pieced together or singly (only in case of a banana leaf) to make a leaf-plate for serving a meal over. Use as a dye: The flowers are used to prepare a traditional Holi colour. It is also used as a dyeing color for fabric. Use as a pesticide: This plant kills Mosquitoes. They are attracted by the smell and color of the flower. Eggs that are laid into the liquid within the flower will never hatch. Any mosquito that touches the fluid can never escape from it. beauty in Nature branch close-up day Easter fragility Freshness Growth Nature parrot tree Red springtime Tree Easter Ready
