Tejbal tree sticks first time I saw during Chamoli to Rishikesh travel by jeep. It was placed on top of jeep dashboard. Upon query the driver enhanced knowledge by saying – Tejbal protects a person or a vehicle from evil eyes. It is also used by Sadhus as walking stick and is also known as Shivkath. During Mana village visit I saw them again in shops and many times during our jeep stops at various locations.
