    The cure of the sore throat is made by getting chicken-weed and putting it in a stocking. The stocking is then tied around the neck.
    The cure of the burn may be got by licking a "man-keeper" three times. A "Man-keeper" is smaller than a frog and he has a long tail. The local people also call this insect a 'darbhdaol'.
