Alike elsewhere, India too has a few mini anti-malaria operations, one of which is called ‘Fight Malaria at Home’ (FMH) alias Ghare Maro Malaria GMH (vernacular). It uses an herbal cap., ‘OMARIA’-Orissa Malaria Research Indigenous Attempt’. Little is known about FMH-GMH or OMARIA, within India. Used in the Koraput plateau (core drug resistant hub of India) as an homemade- handmade panacea. It’s been in continuous use since 1998. Led to the finding that (i) India has a unique spp. of Punica Grantum (Ayurvedic Dalimba) not used medicinally elsewhere (ii) its dermis has elligitanins, ellagic acid with K+ nomer (iii) cures resistant malaria (iv) kills; clears parasites and gametocytes of all stages (v) safe (vi) resistance not indicated (vii) paradigm shift. The OMARIA story is about the social service and the humanitarian technology as outcome result and large scale sustained social service in the remote of the nature’s lap and joy thereof. Attainments and travails remain untold.
