Country Medicine

The Country Medicine shop (Naatu Marundhu Kadai – நாட்டு மருந்து கடை ) are quite old and legacied in a locality (especially the old ones of Chennai). They come in quite handy for various DIY medicines, herbs, warding evils, mostly the ones which are aimed to cure simple maladies. Easily identifiable as your granny’s medicines.

One such shop at Zam Bazaar, Triplicane.
