I would like to tell you about these trees, are called as Neem trees. I don’t know if you can pluck them, but you might find them down below. This is what is the very good thing for driving out all the badhas, somehow or other. It has a very bitter taste and the badhas run away from it, but they’re very oxygen-creating plants and we use them as toothbrushes. See, there’s one twig is taken and chewed into and then we go on cleaning our teeth with it for about an hour or so, you see, (Laughter) while talking to people, early in the morning when they are going for a walk they just take it in their teeth and just go on chewing all of them talking together and sort of working it out. So the teeth can keep very well. They never go to dentists, Indians, don’t go to dentists. I've never been to a dentist myself. So this is a very nice thing and here also you get something called Neem toothpaste, I don’t know where you can get it, but that’s a very good thing for your teeth. So if you could get these trees down, below somewhere, you can pluck it out and you can just start use it for a nice brushing, try, if you can, but you have to chew it very well. So these are, these are the trees, these, this kind, you can see it. And if you have any sort of a scabies or any skin trouble, then we boil the water with this and give a bath. It's very good, for taking a bath, boil the water with this and take a bath. Is a bitter thing, if you don’t allow the water to go in your mouth, then it's perfectly all right, it's very good, it's very medicinal thing called as Neem - N-E-E-M – Neem. Try to find, if you can find the toothpaste somewhere.
