In Mumbai it is called 'kamandal'--the sadhu's water bowl--or rather
in modern terminology a water bottle!1

Like in earlier discussion i said about the common names,, here is one more example "Water bottle"
Begger's bowl turned to be Water bottle...
 
Request: Please stop giving any kind of common name to any plant..
