We have Madhumita Mohanty's (C-Block) word for it. "Camphor-cure is working wonders," she says in her mail, responding to our blog post on the findings of a Google search for cure by another Mantrivasi. Kishore Kumar (B-407) who tried out several other methods to protect his two little kids from mosquito menace discovered camphor and shared his findings with us.
Madhumita, who has a two-year old daughter, said she was so menaced that she would try anything. That was when she came across our blog post. And here is what she wrote after trying the camphor cure:
It works to a considerable extent and keeps the house free from mosquito (almost).The (camphor) tablets (I put 4 in a bowl of water) haven't evaporated completely even after 5-6 days! That way it's economical as well.I think its time we spread the word among all Mantrivasis.
