  1. what is difference between “apamarg tail” and “apamarga kshar tail”? I am of the opinion that “apamarg tail” is prepared from the roots, while “apamarga kshar tail” is prepared from entire plant. Well. Let be.
    Where from the “apamarg tail” is available?

  2. (a) Apamarga Tail and (b) Apamarha kshara Taila are different poroducts. Both used for deafness.
    I want (a) Apamarga Tail. I do not want (b) Apamarha kshara Taila for personal use. I want the supplier.
