As dussehra is coming up, it reminded me of the jammi aakulu. On Dussehra day, we generally give some akshintalu along with some jammi leaves to elder's and take their blessings. I do not know the reason behind it but wanted to share it with all of you. Jammi chettu in english is called "Mimosa". I got small seedling from one of my colleague. I was excited to find that it is Jammi chettu.
Another chamanthi chettu beside jammi chettu at my home.
