In most Hindu establishments (homes and other institutions) you normally find a Tulasi plant growing out of a Tulasi katte (or enclosure). The Tulasi is considered to be a holy plant and is worshipped often – sometimes every morning in orthodox Hindu families. There is also a Tulasi Habba (or festival) that accompanies Deepavali (festival of lights). The Tulasi has medicinal value and is often used as a herb in curing the common cold and cough.
