Looks like leaf miners.

Google "leafminer control". Below is one site.

Here is a link that might be useful: Leafminer Control

So does Neem Oil help? And should I remove all leaves having that?

Would this site help? You can play around and see if Neem oil would be effective.

I noticed that Pyrethrin (not to be confused with the synthetic pyrethroids!) was suggested as a remedy for leafminer. But as you will see, Attra lists a slew of options against leafminers.

Sorry I can't help you much; I don't have any experience with these sprays. I guess I let things live (or die) if they get infested. But I'd remove the infested leaves and not put them on the compost.

Keep us posted about what you do and how it works out for you.

Thanks so much for ur help anney and ppod.. In 2-3 days it has spread to all big leaves. I am planning to take of the affected leaves and spray neem oil first to see what happens.. I just started to try to grow a few things.. and its a lil disheartening to not protect them from these insects! And I dont want to use powerful pesticides too! hmmm.. And ppod thanks for the site.. i think if neem oil doesnt help i'll try something from the site! Will let u know what happens though! Thanks again!
