GNP nature walk 7: Tinospora cordifolia

Can you see the thin long roots hanging from these branches? At first i thought they were the roots of the banyan, but was told they were that of a climber/parasite - the tinospora cordifolia. (called "seenthil" in tamil). The ENVIS website says that it has a host of medicinal properties. Ghostly isnt it?
