Dear Mr. Kalbagh, Congratulations for putting up such a useful website which is equally beautiful too. It seems that you have worked VERY HARD and spent a lot of time on it. Congratulations again.I have also been having a dream of putting such type of website. I am 67, very widely travelled and have a large number of photographs about lesser known fruits. But I have not been able to do it. So I can realize how much work does it involve.Please write me more about it. Please also write me if I can be of any help for you. THIS IS VERY SINCERE OFFER.Wishing you all the best in your efforts,

Very truly yours,

Dr. Chiranjit Parmar

Hello,” Fantastic ” is the only word , I can describe your site. I have visited many good US and European sites but none Indian as good as yours. While visiting the foreign sites , I used to always wonder if there can be an Indian site , giving similar info of the Indian plants. As you know, the foreign sites have lot of information but very little pertaining to Indian conditions and plants.I came to know about your site recently through BNHS ( north mumbai ) yahoogroup. I am yet to explore the complete site. But from what I have seen, it is just fabulous. I ll get back with more details as I explore further.By the way, let me introduce myself. I am Aniruddh K. Deshpande. I am an amateur in the field of botany. I am Electronics engineer by profession. I stay at Vile Parle. Needless to stay , I love plants.With best regards,

Dear Nandan, This is a monumental, unique and very laudable effort. We shall certainly support it as long as the costs are always reasonable! Incidentally, you have not mentioned the URL of the site in your attachment – please do so as I wish to frequently check it out, particularly the section on Pest Management (these are days when the word ‘control’ has been increasingly abandoned for ‘management’).Regards,

Dear Nandan, I really enjoyed looking through your website. The database is very comprehensive. You have an attractive top banner, and good organization (it’s easy to find what your looking for). I see that someone has put a lot of work into hand coding-wow, that’s a big table on your database lists!

Dear Nandan Kalbag, Thanks for your identifications. You really have good plant knowledge. We were particularly happy with the identification of Malpighia coccigera. Carissa carandas was pointed out by somebody else too, but I was a bit unsure as the flowers looked slightly narrower. But it matches quite nicely with the picture you sent.
yooo40 actually turned out to be Alternanthera philoxeroides (commonly called Alligator weed), and not Enicostemma axillare. Thanks again for your continued contribution.– Tabish
Dear Nandan, Well done site. My wife was impressed. She has a problem with her coleus which do not show proper growth or shoot up lanky not bushy. Any suggestions.Best wishes.
