Dear Raghuji, beautiful flower.  I had the same plant with me.  It is a type of hibiscus and propagated from seeds and cuttings.

Regards,

Mani.

Hibiscus cannabinus
The leaves are sour and make very tasty bhaji (shag) to be eaten with chapati or Bhakari.
The red calyx which is also sour is dried and used in place of tamarind in curries.
In marathi ambadi.

Doesn't it look like Hibiscus radiatus, the red hibiscus??

The two species really very close, the main difference being that epicalyx sebments are forked in H. radiatus, 


not so in H. cannabinus




on that count the above is H. cannabinus

See the epicalyx is important.
