An Untold Story

Halund was given the status of a mystical plant, worshipped by the native people of the forest of Dangs. This provoked everyone to conserve the indigenous species Vigna vexillata. It is our pleasure to mention that many research scholars from The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda with equal support from the forest officials of WBG took this utmost essential initiative of conservation of Halund, given the fact that it is a highly nutritiously beneficial plant.
